In this consultation, I answer as many of your questions as I can within the hour. I do not provide an agenda or do a document review ahead of time, but we can cover a lot of territory in an hour! This is appropriate for any age or grade level, and can be just for parents, or can include the student.

This is a free-standing, 2-hour consultation, appropriate for grades 9 and above, and takes place via Zoom. I will answer any questions you have but also guide you and your student through the most important, grade- and age-level-appropriate elements of preparation for college applications. This includes a review of the transcript, extracurricular and summer activities, and any test scores. I will offer guidance on as much as we have time to cover. Topics can include choosing high school courses, planning extracurricular and summer activities, preparing for and scheduling standardized tests, and writing summer program or college applications. It is usually not possible for me to develop a complete, customized list of colleges, or to review college applications or essays during this meeting. (For these services, see my Half-Day Express Workshop and Core and Collaboration Packages.) You will leave this meeting with a clear understanding of college priorities and next steps for becoming the strongest possible college applicant. 

Buckle up and eat your Wheaties! This is a fun, fast-moving work session, in which we will accomplish as much as possible of any remaining tasks in the college preparation and application process in a single meeting. It may last as long as 3 ½ hours. 

This is a free-standing, working meeting, appropriate for grades 11 or 12, or for transfer students, includes the student and at least one parent or caretaker, and can take place in-person in Los Angeles, CA, or via Zoom.

This workshop will include:

  • Gathering any information necessary for me to offer sound suggestions and guidance
  • Transcript and curriculum review and/or planning for any remaining high school classes
  • Review of any prior, and planning preparation for any future standardized tests 
  • Review and/or brainstorming of extracurricular and summer activities 
  • Exploration of student’s interests, college goals, priorities, and parameters for the college list (including financial)

Depending on the timing of the meeting and your needs I can also provide:

  • Feedback on an existing college list, and/or develop the college list as much as possible with additional suggestions and ideas
  • Support for deciding whether or where to apply via Early Decision, Early Action, Early Decision 2, Regular Decision or Rolling Decision application rounds. 
  • Feedback, brainstorming, or advice on any part of the college applications, including essays, resumes and activity lists, and tips for completing the forms
  • Guidance on submitting test scores, transcripts, letters of recommendation, and other materials
  • General guidance on completing financial aid applications and how/where to find scholarships 
  • Advice and preparation for interviews and campus visits
  • Suggestions for ongoing communication with colleges throughout the application process
