Colleges are getting more selective every year. The number of college applications is reaching unbelievable numbers! So how do you make your application stand out from the crowd?

I've created this easy to follow guide to help high-aspiring high school students (and their helpful, nervous parents) reach their dream of attending their TOP COLLEGE CHOICE. I've worked with hundreds of high school students as a College & Career Coordinator and helped them achieve their goals. Why wait until your sophomore or junior year to start planning? Get started NOW to make a plan for your (or your child's) success! The earlier you realize what colleges are looking for, the bigger advantage you'll have with your application. Examples of some of the schools where my students have been accepted are: American, Boston College, Colgate, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Davidson, Duke, Georgetown, Georgia Tech, NYU, Notre Dame, Princeton, Rice, UC Berkeley, UCLA, UNC Chapel Hill, Vanderbilt, Villanova, and the Washington University in St. Louis.

It only takes FIVE things to make your college application stand out from the crowd:

  • Academics (but you already knew that!)
  • Curiosity (a demonstrated love of learning, whatever that is)
  • Good character (yes, colleges are looking at that)
  • Great personal skills (yep, they'll try to figure this out too!)
  • High impact volunteerism or research project (I'll talk about this in the book.)
