There are a lot of people who call themselves college admissions consultants, coaches, or even people who promise to get your student into college. The fact is no one can guarantee admission into a particular college. But, there are many ways to improve your child’s chances of getting into a school that will provide him or her with the best opportunities for success.
Getting to Know You
What school is right for my student? Which program within that school? Precision Admission knows what questions to ask. Precision Admission’s information gathering process helps us get to know our clients better and also helps them get to know themselves. Our surveys and questionnaires help us guide students to find schools that may fit their academic, social, financial, and physical requirements.
Finding the right school is a challenging and important task. Based on information we collect from you, we create a personalized list of college recommendations that meet your student’s unique needs and desires. This list will include reach schools, target schools, and probable admit schools. We guide students as they research options and continually update their college list.
The college admissions process is complicated and can be overwhelming. We provide each student with the necessary guidance to complete all parts of the application in a timely manner, including: creating a resume, preparing essays, obtaining letters of recommendations, submitting applications, and more. Our goal is to have all applications started well in advance and completed on time!
Standardized Testing Plan
Based on your student’s profile and goals, Precision Admission will provide advice about which standardized tests to take and when, including SAT, ACT, AP, and SAT Subject Tests. We can also provide recommendations about test preparation.
Essay Brainstorming and Planning
Different colleges require different essays. However, there are often strategies for reducing the total number of essays that must be written. Sometimes essays can be revised to satisfy the requirements of multiple schools. We will work closely with your student to develop both a personal statement as well as supplemental essays for individual schools.
We provide continuous support to both parents and students throughout the entire process with regular face-to-face meetings, phone calls, emails, and text messages. You will receive guidance about important issues like what classes and tests to take, who and how to ask for letters of recommendations, essay and interview preparation, extracurricular activities and summer programs, and what to put on a resume. We are even with you after the application process is complete to help your student if he or she is deferred, waitlisted, or receive multiple offers.
Purple Power Pack
Today, there are many sources of information about colleges, admissions, financial aid, and other application-related issues. The challenge is that these resources are diverse, spread out, and of varying quality. We have taken the best information and collected it for you in our Purple Power Pack, which includes sections on testing, essays, resumes, recommendations, interviewing, and more. Each student will receive one of these binders full of information and checklists. Additional tips and tools will be provided throughout the process. Everything you need is in one place.
Precision Admission Alerts
Our lives have never been busier. Parents juggle jobs, children’s schedules, family obligations, volunteer work, and the need to take care of themselves, too! However, it is extremely important not to miss any of the numerous deadlines in the application process. We provide students and parents with Precision Admission Alerts to remind you of key due dates as well as pertinent information. This is all part of the comprehensive service provided by Precision Admission.
Precision Admission is responsive and flexible. While we follow a structured plan, we recognize that each student and family is unique. We strive to take the stress out of the college application process for both students and parents and to make the journey as enjoyable as possible!
