Looking for the right college?
You’ve worked hard to reach this point in your education. For many students, the path to the future will be revealed by applying to college.
Soul searching, talking with others about their experiences, trolling internet resources, and dedicating sufficient time to the process are necessary to ensure that you will have the best options for personal fulfillment and career success. A counselor can also help: as a researcher to answer questions with accurate information; as a sounding board to test your ideas and brainstorm approaches to each application and specific essay topics; as a critical reader to see yourself from the perspective of the admissions staff, and help you put your best self forward, on paper and in person. CollegeConsult offers short-term, focused counseling, that can make a big difference when the process is stalled or the student is overwhelmed.
