Description

Our in-person workshops have helped more than 10,000 families plan for college. Let’s demystify the college admissions process. This 60-minute workshop will empower you to take control of the college admissions process. You will learn about best practices, key deadlines and how to help your child succeed.

We answer questions like:

  • What do colleges look for and how do you optimize your child's positioning?
  • What are your options for paying for college — savings, loans, scholarships — and how do you minimize your potential out-of-pocket costs?
  • What goes into writing a great essay and submitting a strong application?


Topics Include:

Step 1: How To Get In

First, we explain how to determine the right path for each student and how to maximize their potential of getting into their preferred school. We discuss how to create a strong college list, and we give insight into the essays and other admissions requirements.

Step 2: How To Pay For It

We help you understand the landscape of college payment options such as financial aid, loans and savings. You will learn how to minimize your potential out-of-pocket costs and how to navigate merit- vs. need-based aid. We review EFC and FAFSA, and how to evaluate financial aid award packages (which can be tricky).

Step 3: Career Success

First, we review how to make a successful transition to college and offer tips to help prepare. Next, we go over strategies for building a solid resume and landing good internships throughout college. Last, we discuss career planning, choosing the right major and what to look for in a school.

What Families Are Saying About the 3 Steps Workshop…

“Excellent! Informative and realistic. Helped explain aspects of the college process that I was unaware of.”

“Mr. Krebs did a great job! He was very personable. His knowledge of the entire process is impressive!”

“Very informative. I especially like the information about GPA correlation and scholarships / financial aid.”

“I really enjoyed all of the information about your S.A.F.E. schools and I now am considering making a list of mine. I also enjoyed all of the merit and scholarship information.”

“I like how you explained everything in a way that was easy to understand. The S.A.F.E. acronym that you used to choose colleges was also very helpful. I now know what to research and what questions I should ask the college reps at the college fairs.”

“It was a very eye opening experience!”

“It was great. I work in higher education and a lot of this information we’ve shared with our daughter. However, there was a ton of new information I was not aware of. Very informational and I will recommend.”
