COLLEGE ADMISSIONS PROCESS

Labor Day Weekend marks the official end of summer. And if you haven’t already, now is definitely the time to start thinking about college admissions. Using Common App to apply to college is one of the most popular methods. With more than 900 colleges nationwide accepting this application, students are able to apply to multiple colleges at once. However, the process can still be tedious. Experts recommend allowing six weeks for the process of applying to college using the Common App. And now that your senior has class assignments, tests, sports, clubs, community service, and social engagements, it may take even longer. 

I would love to help. In fact, now is the perfect time for me to join your team. I view my role as one of reducing stress for your student – and for you.
