Application Process

My goal is to support students in preparing well-planned applications that clearly communicate to admissions readers the student’s strengths and accomplishments

Ultimately, the objective is to help students match up with the best-fit schools where they can flourish.

My college counseling program guides students to learn about themselves; understand their college goals; stay on track throughout the process; and submit quality applications.

AchieveCoach College Consulting’s personalized process supports students to:

  • select academically appropriate and challenging courses in high school 
  • understand their academic strengths and any areas of challenge 
  • stay focused on academic success while maintaining balance 
  • investigate potential college majors 
  • strategize appropriate schedule for taking SAT, ACT, SAT Subject Tests, AP tests 
  • decide which scores to report to colleges 
  • consider meaningful extracurricular activities that showcase student interests
  • consider lesser-known, quality schools that connect to a student’s criteria for success
  • plan for meaningful campus visits 
  • highlight the high school résumé or activity summary 
  • get coached on admissions interviewing skills through mock interviewing 
  • brainstorm ideas for essays that “stand out”
  • monitor the application process through a detailed timeline 
  • stay organized in the process to minimize stress 
  • request solid teacher and/or outside recommendations
  • create well-written and proofed essays that convey the student’s voice and message 
  • convey appropriate levels of interest in the school to which the student applies 
  • carefully evaluate early application options (ED, EA, etc.) 
  • understand requirements for financial aid applications and manage deadlines
