The College Search, Application, and Selection Process
We work with students (as early as 8th grade) seeking their first college. 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.
Student Assessment and Career Exploration
Together we will explore, understand, and articulate your strengths, aspirations, and uncertainties. We will assess your interests, personality and values 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 nearly 4,000 colleges to choose from, and we will identify the best options for you and your family. Cost matters, and we look at so much more! Often, the least expensive college for you ends up being a school you would have ruled out due to the initial price tag! We apply our college knowledge to what we know about your individual academic, social and financial circumstances to create an exciting list of colleges for you to apply. We also teach you how to efficiently research options, both for a college and potential scholarships.
We assist you to prepare complete and outstanding applications that will be positively noticed by Admissions and scholarship committees. Authentic and well-written essays are critical ,and we develop those with you. We prepare you for possible interviews and create a great resume. 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.”
