ACADEMIC & COLLEGE SEARCH SERVICES
The College Search, Application, and Selection Process
We work with students (as early as 8th grade) seeking to build a best-fit college list. You may be a stellar student with fabulous test scores or you may have struggled in high school — we are here to help either way. Also, we work with transfer students or those looking for a gap year or other alternatives. You may choose our services a la carte or as a package.
College Major and Career Exploration
Together we will explore, understand, and articulate your strengths, aspirations, and uncertainties. We help assess your interests, personality, aptitudes and priorities to give you direction for possible careers, majors, and colleges that fit you. We use proprietary software to gather and analyze data in meaningful ways.
There are over 2000 U.S. colleges to choose from, and we know how confusing the selection process can be. We apply our extensive college knowledge to create an exciting and balanced college list that will meet your individual academic goals, social fit, and financial circumstances. We have visited and studied nearly 350 colleges, and we keep expanding our base every month. We also teach you how to efficiently research options, both for choosing a college and earning scholarships. Our knowledge and experience with colleges’ scholarship and financial aid data and background guide us in exploring the best options for you.
Essays, Applications & Scholarships
There are many parts to the college application. Whether you plan to apply to elite universities, selective flagships, or regional colleges, we help you prepare complete and outstanding applications that will be positively noticed by Admissions and Scholarship Committees. Authentic and well-written essays are critical, and teaching you to bring out your best is where we shine! We even help you write your resume and prepare you for scholarship and honors program interviews. Through the whole process, we create a customized plan for you to stay ahead of deadlines.
“Our MCPT Admission Coach has been very helpful in the decision process for the universities we were considering. We knew that the process of choosing a college or university for our daughter would be challenging. She provided us insight into schools we really hadn’t given a second thought to. She helped us really hone in on what our daughter would find as the best fit for her. We look forward to using her again with our son in another year.”
