What do you want to study? Which schools are best for you? The College Search is a multi-phased collaborative project that will walk you through hundreds of important questions to deliver a tailored list of school recommendations with a trove of information about each one.
A great college essay can make the difference between being accepted or declined and can increase financial aid offers. Learn to write competitive essays to beat other applicants for limited seats at top schools with weekly sessions through the summer and fall to draft, hone, and perfect the Common App Essay, Application Résumé, and supplemental essays for up to 10 colleges.
Applications are all online, but that doesn’t mean you only need to check a few boxes, click a button and be done. The application is your first impression and you want it to be perfect. We’ll help your student avoid common mistakes and catch opportunities others miss.
Get individualized tax-filing suggestions to optimize your FAFSA and tax credits for all four years of college. We’ll also fill out your federal, state, and school-specific forms with you for your freshman year and help you pursue all available need- and merit-based aid with your school.
Some schools require or offer an interview as part of an application. This is your opportunity to become more than just a number and gain an edge over the competition. We’ll get you prepared to answer any question with confidence and charisma so your personality will shine.
Making the time to work through essays and applications can be the hardest part. The Admissions Lab provides a day, time, and place to hunker down and get it all done. We’ll help your student get organized, stay focused, and keep moving from July-October with unlimited access to weekly morning and evening lab times at each of our centers.

Visiting a school is an important step in deciding to apply or to commit. We can help coordinate your tours, interviews, overnights, summer programs, and even visits to real classes. You’ll get the most out of each trip with key tips on how to collect and organize information and what questions most students don’t know to ask.
