Fall College Applications Advising

Some students, even after “Crafting Your College Application” summer camp, seek additional individual help on specific applications and supplements for their college applications. Fall counseling for seniors is available only for students who attended “Crafting Your College Application” during the summer, and is structured into three distinct sessions. I meet with each student individually once each week during the session, the same day and time each week. Meetings can be in-person at my home or online via Zoom, at your choice:

    • Session 1 is intended for students aiming for Early Action and Early Decision. Students can work on as many as 4 or 5 applications.
    • Session 2 runs for three weeks, and is aimed at November 30 application deadlines (University of California, University of Washington, University of Texas, and certain other state schools, as well as the special scholarship deadline at the University of Southern California). Students work on only one or two applications.
    • Session 3 runs for 4 weeks and is targeted toward regular decision applications. Students can work on as many as 4 or 5 applications.


Session Begins Focus Cost Registration
1 Week of Sept 11, for 5 weeks Early Action and Early Decision $1,895 Register for Session 1
2 Week of Oct 30, for 3 weeks November 30 Application Deadlines $1,195 Register for Session 2

3 Week of Nov 27, for 4 weeks Regular Decision $1,595 Register for Session 3

Weekly hour-long individual counseling sessions are supplemented by feedback and editing via email during the week between meetings. Expect to work hard during this time on your essays — we are aiming for beautiful and interesting applications! Also, if you worked with an editor during camp, you can ask to continue working with him or her (together with me) during your fall session.

Parents are always welcome to attend meetings or ask questions.

Please note: I do not accept students for individual counseling the fall of senior year unless they have previously attended my summer camp. The fall program is for students who have successfully completed “Crafting Your College Application.”
