College Admission Planning

Unhappy fact. Only 48.5%¹ of students graduate from the 1st college they attend. Yes, you read that correctly. Less than 1 in 2 students. Why? In my experiences it “generally” boils down to: 

Late/Incomplete Planning = Uniformed Decisions = Poor Choices. 

Time is $$.  A poor initial college choice or uninformed decisions mean greater time to and money spent on a degree (if persisting to graduation at all).

I focus on maximizing your educational investment and aim to increase your odds of graduating from a 1st choice college by concentrating on the Successful College Admission Planning Equation”:

Good Match (FIT) = Happy & Engaged Student = Retention = Graduation (and generally in 4 yrs or less)

Via assessment, evaluation, focused research and objective advice, together we will identify and develop your customized college list. Each school will match your individual academic strengths, talents and interests. Good match (fit) schools will meet your needs in three (3) key areas: academically, socially, and financially.

Life happens but in general statistics and research tell us there is a direct correlation between choosing a “good match” school and your retention and ultimate graduation from that school.
