College Admissions Advising

Confused about the When, Where, What, and How as it relates to the college preparation and application process? The application period is one of the busiest times in a student’s life, often fraught with confusion, stress, and anxiety. A college advisor can help students manage some of the time and emotional pressures so that it is a more manageable process, increasing the chances for a more positive outcome.

Choosing the “right” college is one of the most important decisions in a student’s life. Ideally, students and families should begin the exploration process at the beginning of high school, not at the start of senior year. However, whatever stage you are in, an Embrace advisor can provide expertise and professional guidance so that your student submits an application which best highlights his or her interests and achievements.
