THE ADMISSIONS PREP PROCESS

Mission: At Admissions Prep, we collaborate with students in identifying and planning their unique path to college and beyond.

Purpose: We serve as an adviser and a collaborator, an empathetic ear and a pragmatic task-master. Our purpose is to help our students proactively shape their future.

Vision: To change the world one student, one unique path at a time.

Specifically we guide students and parents through the entire college admissions process, from college selection through college applications and personal statements.  This includes three phases: ASSESS, PLAN, APPLY

ASSESS  

Chart YOUR course. Through discussions and questionnaires, we help students focus the college admissions process by addressing questions such as: What should I study?  What do I want from my college experience?  What unique experiences and background do I have to offer colleges?  Based on my interests, experiences and future path, to which colleges  should I apply?

PLAN 

Take CONTROL of the process:  What are the deadlines and requirements for each college?  When should I visit colleges?  When should I take exams?  Who should write my recommendations?  Should I apply Early Decision, Early Action or Regular Decision?

Admissions Prep works closely with each student, not only in coaxing compelling content, but also in goal setting and meeting pre-determined deadlines:  What “significant event” should I write about for my personal statement?  What should I highlight in the various parts of the application including short answers, activity sheets, optional information and essays?  What do admissions officers look for in personal statements?  Is my application complete?
