We achieve that through personalized college and career counseling, with all the academic support you need to reach your goals, fully tailored to suit your needs, schedule and budget.

WHAT IS THE PARENT'S’ ROLE IN THE COLLEGE ADMISSION PROCESS?

  • Parents play a major role in the college planning process. They help students make decisions, offer encouragement, provide reminders, and support their children throughout the process, in addition to contributing financial and other practical assistance

WHAT SETS YOUR COLLEGE ADMISSIONS PROGRAM APART?

      • Our College Admissions Program is:
        • Focused on helping your child succeed. Our counselors view each student they work with as an individual, with unique talents, interests, and goals, and they will strive to help your child realize his or her college aspirations.

DO YOU GUARANTEE ADMISSIONS INTO TOP COLLEGES?

  • No one can guarantee a student admission to a particular college or university. Our Mavin Counselors understand that many variables factor into admissions decisions and therefore they do not make false promises. They can, however, help students improve their chances of admission by identifying colleges that match their admissions profile, and interests, and by guiding them through the college application process.

Admissions Consulting

WHAT IS COLLEGE ADMISSIONS COUNSELING?

College Admissions Counseling is the comprehensive and strategic planning of a student’s entry into college.

WHAT DOES COLLEGE ADMISSIONS COUNSELING DO?

Mavin’s College Admissions Counseling assists students and their parents with the college planning and application process. Our counselors help families by providing a realistic assessment of a student’s individual strengths and weaknesses as a prospective college applicant, identifying colleges and universities that match the student’s needs and interests, and providing guidance on all aspects of the college application and college planning process.

WHY PAY FOR COLLEGE ADMISSIONS COUNSELING?

College Planning can be difficult to navigate. Many High Schools have high guidance counselor to student ratios. This can make it difficult for some students to get personalized and on-going advice about college planning and college admissions. Our College Admissions Counselor serves as a guide to the entire application and college planning process, helping both students and parents feel less stressed, better prepared, and more confident about their college plan.

HOW DOES YOUR ADMISSIONS CONSULTING PROGRAM WORK? WHAT ARE THE BASICS?

Our comprehensive admissions consulting service extends beyond just getting into college, focusing on bridging the gap between career, life goals, and education. We want to instill in the students the habit of starting with the end in mind. If you can visualize where you are going or where you want to be, you will know which path to take, and everything will fall into place to get you there.

So the first thing we do with all of the student to come to our admissions consulting program is identifying their strengths, weaknesses, interests, and their goals.

By identifying the students’ goals and helping them to better understand their own goals, we’re able to help students align their current courses and extracurricular activities with their long-term goals. In this way, the goal isn’t just getting into a good school but instead getting into a school that will act as a good springboard to help them with their career and life goals.

After identifying the goals, we help the students develop their admissions strategies and continue to work with them on building their profiles, through curriculum planning, extracurricular activity guidance, and academic needs analysis and support. The goals are broken down into month-to-month action items, a manageable road map with the destination in mind. We meet up monthly or bi-monthly to review the action items and make adjustments to new tasks and goals, to make sure the students stay on track and aligned with their goals. This is the critical stage, and best results are achieved when students work with us from 8th or 9th grade.

When the actual application season comes, we work with the students closely on their application, college essays, interviews, scholarship and financial aid application to make sure that they present themselves in the most favorable light while maintaining their own authenticity.

We also offer follow-up support when your acceptance letters come in if you need advice or assistance on your final decision, or wait-lists and deferrals.

Our support continues into your college years, should you need more help transitioning to college, or academic support and transfer service.

HOW WILL I WORK WITH MY CONSULTANT?

Our consultants will get to know you personally, through one-on-one consultations. You can work together on the phone, via Skype, Zoom, Google Hangout, emails, or meet in person – whatever you prefer.

You will meet regularly for the consultant to gain understanding of your interests, goals, and circumstances, and to monitor your progress and help you assess and adjust your goals. Your consultant will also be available whenever you have questions or need help with your college application.

You will be able to utilize our extensive online tools for mapping out your educational and career path, research colleges, and manage everything you need for your college application. Your consultant will work with you and your family to devise the admissions strategy that will work best for your particular circumstances, in order to maximize your admissions chances at the colleges and universities you want to attend.

Your consultant may also work with our learning coordinator to create customized learning plans for you if you need extra academic support. Our advisory committee will also communicate and consult regularly with your consultant, as well as review your application before you submit. This collaborative process allows you to benefit not only from your consultant’s own experience and knowledge, but from that of our network of college admissions experts.
