02 Process

College applications are a chance for students to explore the narratives that connect their extracurricular, academic, and personal passions.

/Biographical Sketch

Our process starts with a long conversation. Consultants explore the personal stories that define our students and sketch a portrait of their most important experiences and academic motivations. The goal is to identify the intimate and often quirky details that make our students special.

Beyond the effort to gather information, the "Biographical Sketch" marks the beginning of a real relationship that extends throughout consultant process.


Consultants create a "Storyboard" with their students that highlight the most compelling aspects of their personal and academic journey. This structured outline provides answers for the most important questions on the application.

- What major best fits my personal interests and goals?
- Where should I focus my extracurricular development?
- How can my resume and Activity Section best reflect my achievements and curiosity?
- What types of colleges will fit my academic and personal needs?

/Extracurricular Development

Consultants provide constant feedback for students as they pursue their extracurricular activities, passion projects, and research. In addition to encouraging personal growth and creativity, the goal is to help students prepare solutions to unexpected obstacles, take advantage of spontaneous opportunities, and follow-through on challenging extracurricular plans.

For students interested in applying to competitive summer programs, we help identify the best options for their academic profile and provide feedback on their application material.


Admissions consulting is a comprehensive experience. From helping create smart college list decisions that consider fit and competitiveness to answering questions about strength of schedule and standardized testing, our staff is available for the many questions and challenges that present themselves to students and parents while preparing college applications.

/Application Material

Helping students tackle the essays, resumes, and other material required by college applications is the most rewarding step of the process for our consultants. We emphasize the importance of our students expressing themselves with originality and authenticity.

Consultants also help students with the difficult task of juggling the different feedback they receive from peers, teachers, counselors, and parents.

/Complete Support

The application process does not end after clicking the "submit" button. Our consultants communicate with students about application status checks, interview preparation, deferral and waitlist letters, and college selection.
