Comprehensive Counseling Package:$7000 Our most popular package and the best value!
The goal of comprehensive counseling is to help high school students identify, apply and gain admission and financial aid at colleges that are the right fit for the student. Students may begin this process with a College Admission Coach as early as 9th grade and select from a menu of services that include pre-college planning, selection of colleges that are appropriate targets for the student, guidance through the admissions process, scholarship and financial aid assistance, and help with decision-making related to choosing the college to attend. Students receive 40-60 hours of coaching, based on their needs and desires, plus a week of common application camp in August is included. Coaching may be performed face-to-face, by phone, by Skype or via email. Most coaching uses a mix of all of these communication methods. This package is available to US Domestic students.
Please note: The comprehensive price covers application help for up to 12 schools. We do this because we strongly discourage students from applying to more schools than that. Help for more schools is charged additionally at the rate of $250 per school.
