Selecting the right college is one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make. The admission process has changed dramatically since most parents applied to college, and families today are seeking to gain an edge in this increasingly competitive landscape. It’s helpful to understand the many complex factors that go into an admit/deny decision, and it’s crucial that your teens select “best fit” colleges where they can thrive. 26% of high achieving students have employed private college counselors to help steer them toward colleges and universities where they will succeed. At One-Stop we use a comprehensive approach; we work with students as young as those entering ninth grade, encouraging them to explore and build upon their best qualities well before the college application begins. It’s never too early (or too late) to start the process!
