I am based in Suwanee, Georgia, and I meet with students in-person in Suwanee, Johns Creek, and Peachtree Corners. I also meet with students virtually using Zoom.
Students can begin the comprehensive package as early as their Sophomore year. The majority of students begin during their Junior year, and I do work with a limited number of seniors who just need support on their essays. I do offer a 90-minute Crash Course for early high school students, which provides an overview of college admissions and high school course selection.
There are four phases of the comprehensive package:
The first phase is “Self-discovery.” During these meetings, we discuss learning styles, personality, and career options.
The second phase is the “Research” method. We will discuss the factors important to your family’s college search and identify schools for consideration. Your student will research and finalize the college list by May of Senior Year.
The final phase is “Apply.” Your student will complete all college applications and essays before December 18, 2020.
All families receive a free initial consultation to help determine the best plan for their needs. Most families choose the comprehensive package because it is the most cost-effective to receive the kind of support they desire. Payment plans are available for the Comprehensive, Junior Year Jump Start, and 10 Hour Application Packages. Click here to view all services (link to services page).
No. I am a member of Higher Education Consultants Association (HECA) and abide by the Standard and Ethics set by my organization. My role is to help alleviate the stress and anxiety that often exists during this process and help your student identify a balanced list of schools where they can find success.
One of the tenants of the GRAND Fit method is “Dollar,” and I work with my families to identify schools within their budget. We discuss the difference between need-based and merit-based aid, and find schools that will offer them the best aid package for their financial situation. I provide my students with resources to help find additional scholarships and will review essays for applications. Most outside scholarships are one-time awards and cannot compete with the thousands of dollars in institutional aid available at many colleges. Also, according to The Student Loan Network’s Scholarship Search Secrets, for every 1 scholarship a student received, they applied to 10 and researched 100!
