A Word to Students

No matter how accomplished, many students harbor the secret fear that they will be rejected by the college of their choice. I am here to give assurance that a 100 percent of my students get into one of their top three college choices; and 94 percent make it to their first choice. Getting you into the college of your choosing is the explicit mission behind Top Choice College Admissions Counseling. I can help you navigate the intricacies of the college admissions process. I invite you to think of the work ahead not as a pile of dirty laundry but as an opportunity to grow, discover, and think more deeply about who you are and what you would like to do with your life. The rigors of all your AP classes and extracurricular commitments hardly gave you a moment’s pause to reflect on these deeper questions. As the saying goes, it’s easy to lose the forest for the trees. My approach to college admissions puts self-discovery at the forefront of college admissions. I begin with a series of assessments to help uncover your innate strengths and passions as well your preference for processing information and making decisions. My students love this process and find it affirming, liberating, and enjoyable. This information then serves as the basis for improving your study habits, test-taking skills, choosing your career or major options, and determining the best fit for the most suitable college environment.

Once I have a map of where you are generally headed, then I will work with you to plan your academics, extracurricular activities and internships which project an image of yourself headed in a chosen path. When it comes time to make your application, I will work with you meticulously, leaving no room for thoughtless mistakes. I will teach you how to write an essay that will make your words lift off the pages and become a living and breathing replica of your best self. I will prepare you for the college interview and show you tricks to overcome your shyness or any nervousness. I will show you creative ways to demonstrate active interest before and after submitting your application. This and much more are listed under my full list of services. Remember that attitude is everything. Stay positive, enjoy the process, and stay the course. I look forward to working with you and contact me if you should have any questions.
