Pinpoint College Planning does not guarantee admission to any college. We will work with your student to create a balanced list of schools for them to apply to. Students write their own essays and fill out college applications.

SERVICES

College counseling is an investment in your student's higher education journey. Pinpoint College Counseling can be an invaluable resource in reducing stress and providing guidance through an often lengthy and overwhelming process.

 

Complimentary Introductory Session – free of charge

This is an introductory 30-minute session in which the students and their families will get a detailed description of how we would work together throughout the college admissions and selection process.

 

Following the Introductory Session, Pinpoint College Counseling offers both a Comprehensive Counseling Package and Hourly Services.

 

The Comprehensive Counseling Package includes but is not limited to:

 

 

UNDERSTANDING THE

ADMISSIONS PROCESS

An in-depth look at the ever-changing world of college admissions – what colleges are looking for, the most critical factors in admissions decisions, and the pieces that make up an application packet.

Understanding

Financial Aid & Scholarships

With increasing college costs, it is critical to discuss expenses and financial strategies before families embark on the college process. This discussion includes an overview of the college financial aid process and approaches to receive maximum need and merit aid.

Evaluating

Academics

A full review of your student's transcripts, test scores, activities, and interests. Pinpoint College Counseling will also offer advice on high school course selection and ACT/SAT test planning and preparation.

Exploring Careers

& Majors

Using personality and career assessments, we will discover your student's strengths and interests, and match those with possible college majors and careers that might be a good fit.

Providing Personal

Insight

We will explore what your student is looking for in a college, and ultimately which colleges will be a good fit. We will get to know your student, and they will get to know themselves through the process.

A Balanced

College List

The end goal is to create a manageable list of colleges that are a fit for your student to apply to academically, socially and financially; schools where they see themselves being happy and prosperous both inside and outside the classroom.

We will help you track the requirements for each application, provide guidance on admissions deadlines, and break the process down into manageable steps.

Writing Essays

& Applications

Your student will create applications and essays that highlight their strengths and accomplishments, express who they are, and convey this positively and authentically.

Creating A

Resume

A complete and current resume helps complete college applications. This service is to assist the student in creating a resume or revising a resume if the student already has one.

Managing the

Process

Preparing for

Interviews

This service allows students to practice actual interview questions and receive direct feedback on ways to improve the quality of the response. The goal of this "mock" interview practice is to have the student feel so comfortable with the interview that it enhances his or her chance for admission.

Decision

Time

After college offers arrive, we will help you evaluate your options and prepare you for the next step, college.
