Preliminary Game Plan and Strategy Meeting

Overview

During this hour-long session, students will meet with a member of our college counseling team to discuss the student’s profile and offer thoughts and advice regarding the development of a personalized game plan and strategy as they get ready to embark on the college admissions process.

This time will be an opportunity to review their academic profile, offer feedback and advice and answer student-specific questions regarding the admissions process.

Students and parents must submit intake forms and academic profile materials one week prior to their scheduled meeting time. Our counselors will review each student’s profile during team meetings to assess their goals, develop strategies and determine next steps that are personalized to the student. Students will have the opportunity to ask any questions pertaining to test preparation and the college process. The goal of this consultation meeting is to discuss the college process timeline, determine next steps based on where the student is in the college application process, talk about specific schools and programs that are applicable to the student and address questions provided on intake forms as well as other questions that come up during the session.
