Here is How You Get Into College
"Just saying that I loved my experience with Collegewise would be an understatement. My counselor was amazing helping me find a college that suited me and helping me take the right steps to get in where I wanted to get in. I honestly feel that Collegewise made my applications and essays fulfill their potential and really made me look like the college candidate I wanted to look like. Without his help, I probably wouldn't have gotten into some of the schools I did end up getting into."

The cost of college counseling can depend upon the level of support you’re looking for. At Collegewise we tailor programs to the unique needs of each family, that’s why we offer a free consultation for people who are interested in working with us. During your consultation, we take the time to get to know your family and then make a program recommendation based upon your goals and budget. Check out our blog post for more information about the cost of different types of college counseling.
At Collegewise we work with students from 8th grade through to senior year. The earlier students get started the more we can help to guide them in making the right choices for high school course selection, extracurricular's, internships, success skills development and a whole range of other areas. Starting earlier can also lead to a more calm and streamlined approach to the process.
