Laying the foundation for student positioning, we start identifying interests and possible career choices. We map out course selections, extracurricular activities and potential job or internship opportunities. We also get a head start on positioning parents’ financial assets to improve chances of controlling college costs.
Building upon the efforts of Freshman year, we continue to focus on student interests, coursework, and mapping these to potential career assets. Preliminary school selection starts, allowing for early EFC calculations, along with continuing adjustments to parents’ financial positioning.
This is where the heavy lifting starts as we continue to build upon work done in the Freshman and Sophomore years. Test prep is carefully tracked and meetings are more frequent and we start mapping career interests to majors. This helps to solidify a list of best fit colleges and starts adding clarity to family EFC and net college costs.
This is where all the hard work starts to pay off. The final list of best fit schools allows us to tailor application packages based on GPA, test scores, athletic and extracurricular activities, majors and financial criteria. Appropriate forms are filed accurately and on time. School selection and awards packages are carefully compared to help families and student come to a final decision. The final funding plan is delivered and implemented.
