College Guidance

Helping Students Rise to the Top of Their Applicant Pool

Eliminating Stress through Personalized, Expert Guidance.

Here are the college guidance services that I offer:

College Admissions Process Support

The college admissions journey can be  overwhelming.  I  bring calm, clarity and professional insight to the entire college admissions experience.

College Admissions Counseling

I bring depth and understanding to my work as a college counselor.   I am a member of the American Institute of Certified Educational Planners,  the Independent Educational Consultants Association and the National Association of College Counselors.

College Essay Support

The college essay is the only component of your application that is entirely in your control.   Do not overlook it!

Identify Colleges that are a 'Good Fit'

31% of all  students drop out of college  before their sophomore year.  57%  of those who continue their studies, take more than 6 years to graduate.  

Graduate on time by applying  to schools that are  a good fit!

Financial Aid Advice

Avoid paying a college’s official sticker price through financial aid, scholarships and merit aid awards.

Building College Admissions Appeal

Colleges look for certain qualities, skills and aptitudes. Showcase your academic, extra-curricular and personal strengths.

All sessions in person or via Skype, FaceTime or Zoom.

Experience matters.

Testimonials

Alice, thank you for all your help and guidance to Molly on her college process. She committed to Boston College. Deciding factor was she was selected as a Gabelli Presidential Scholar! Again, thanks so much for helping Molly. With your guidance I saw her go from intimidated and unclear, to gradually taking more and more ownership, taking more initiative, and finally making an informed and confident decision.

Tom Funk, Parent, Class of 2018

Working with Alice was an absolute joy! I especially appreciated the assistance with essay writing and preparing for interviews. She helped me clarify my ideas and gain confidence for interviews while ensuring that I retained my genuine voice. She was so accommodating with my schedule and always responded promptly when I sent her a question or an essay draft. I highly recommend her help for anyone who wants some guidance and support through the college process.

Ella G., Dartmouth College ’22

Alice was an amazing support for my son. She helped him stay organized and on track every step of the way during his college search. Alice knew a lot about all the colleges he was interested in, and had wonderful ideas on how he could present himself in his most authentic way. We were so thankful to have her guidance and advice.

Pamela Judge Wilson, Parent, Skidmore Class of 2022

I take the stress out of the college search and application process and assist students in finding a college that is a good fit.
