|College Admission Coach℠||
Your college counseling journey starts here.
Welcome! Whether you are a straight A student with a long list of extracurriculars, a struggling student with a story to tell, an international student hoping to attend university in the United States, or anyone in between, our expert college counselors can help you find, apply and get admitted to a university that meets your academic, social, emotional, philosophical and financial goals.
The college admission coaching process can help you understand yourself better and determine what is most important in your college experience. Whether your best match is a small liberal arts college, a large research university, a highly selective Ivy League school, a college that balances academics and faith, or a performing arts conservatory, the goal is to identify and gain admission to a right-fit school where you will thrive academically and personally.
College Admission Coach℠ Jodi Walder, and Independent Educational Consultants Emily Standish, Debra Sankovitz, Rachel Coleman, Jen Nelson, Caroline McCulloch and Kalyn McCall provide comprehensive, one-on-one college counseling services to help high-school students navigate the complicated college admission process. Students work directly with their assigned college counselor on pre-college planning, career & major exploration, developing a college list, time management & meeting deadlines, college application essays, application completion, and finding scholarship & financial aid resources.

"Jodi, you are the best investment I ever made!"
- Cheryl, aunt
"Rachel, our son received the Appointment Letter today for the Air Force Academy! My dad and brother both tried and were not successful...but they didn’t have you as an admissions coach did they?"
- Jack, parent
Your help has truly been invaluable, Jen. What has been most appreciated is your continued validation that no matter where a student goes to college, they can succeed at whatever their goals may be. Yours was a calm and positive voice through the storm!
- Kelly, parent
From the very beginning, Debra took charge and took us on an incredible journey. Not only was she able to guide our daughter through the process and help her produce a stand-out personal essay, Debra was able to keep our daughter fully invested in the process. An unexpected benefit was having a very happy high school senior in our home throughout the year! Debra’s compassion, patience and meeting our daughter where she was at, was a perfect fit — not only for our daughter, but for our family. Our daughter was accepted into her dream school — nothing better than a happy ending!
“Thank you, Kalyn, for helping me find my voice. I couldn’t have done this without you, and can see a difference. Applying to college is stressful, and working with you helped a lot.”
- Nicole, student

"I was reflecting this morning on all the things I am thankful for and I thought of how helpful you’ve been to Kayla with her college search."
- Keith, parent
"Rachel made it much easier than you can even imagine, because the reality is probably neither you, nor I, nor anyone that does not do this type of work professionally can even fathom the detail she knows of this process. Not only did she make it easier, but she took it to depths we never could have guessed.We have 100% confidence that every school on the list is a great choice for our son.
- Josef, dad
""Thank you so much for helping me through so far the toughest and scariest year of my life, Debra - and making sure that I made it to the big leagues - a place where I'll at last get to take a ‘giant leap’ into what I love."
- Owen, student
"Thanks to you, we have been able to sit back and enjoy the ride!"
-Ramesh & Swapna, parents
"Caroline is the best! I never could have gotten through everything without her.
- Emily, student
Jen, I literally can’t thank you enough. What you accomplished with our son, well it had us all crying happy tears last night & is an absolute miracle. Thank you for your positive energy, thanks for your organizing skills, thanks for making a personal connection with him, for that was the biggest miracle of all. He got accepted to all eight of the schools he applied to, which is so awesome! We are beyond happy and going to sit in this moment for a bit longer to take it all in.
