Start creating your balanced college list!

And how do you do that? For starters, you have to think about at least four key characteristics that you would love your future school to have. What are these? 1) Does the school have the major(s) you are intending to study? 2) Is the school's location appealing to you (East Coast, West Coast, South Coast etc.) ? 3) Is the campus size suitable for you (small, medium, or large)? and 4) Do you like its campus setting (City, Suburb, Rural)? After you define these, you can start your college search and then select schools a bit above your academic profile ("Reaches"), similar to your academic profile ("Targets") and a bit below your academic profile ("Safeties"). You now have your balanced college list! Check out the following article which explains how to go about creating your balanced college list:

College Counseling


I can't say enough wonderful things about our college counseling experience. The individualized attention, the high level of organization and follow up, and the unrelenting support made all the difference in my daughter's application process. Her guidance reduced a large amount of stress for us as parents and she is clearly extremely knowledgable and experienced. My daughter clicked with her and felt that she had a trusted and caring consultant in every step of the way. We had a fantastic experience and I highly highly highly recommend her!!

Many thanks for all of your help in this process! I would never have been able to offer all of the counseling that you offered to my daughter during this process. I was right next to her when she received her acceptance notice! What great news! We are super happy!
