  • Discuss your career plans with a counselor and learn about colleges that have matching and innovative curriculums.
  • Find out how you stack up to the competition at your top choice colleges with your GPA and test scores.
  • Have a counselor walk you through completing your applications, from writing powerful essays to getting great letters of recommendation, and ensuring your transcript was sent according to each college's specifications.
  • Find out if you qualify for federal financial aid, and how much you might receive, by consulting with a financial aid expert to estimate your Expected Family Contribution (EFC).
