College Consulting

Instructor: Marlee Napurano

Bring your whole family (and your list of questions) to the table as we explore what goes on behind the closed doors of college admissions, emphasizing the do's and don't's of essays, recommendations, school visits, and interviews. Once you understand the process, we do a thorough evaluation of your student's academic and extracurricular history, and devise a game plan for "packaging" and for improvements and repairs if needed. Next we tackle the college list and review and brainstorm the essay portion of the applications, addressing the Personal Statement and supplemental writing.

Your student will leave the session with a customized time-line from present to opening acceptance letters and a "To Do" list for the entire process.

Some popular questions answered in our seminar:

  • Should I use the Common Application?
  • What's a Supplement?
  • Should I apply Early Decision?
  • How important is community service?
  • Is it bad to check off "undecided" as a major?
  • Do I have to visit?
  • How many recommendations is too many?
  • Should I retake my Subject Tests or my SAT?
  • Does the interview count?
  • Should I declare a major on my application?
  • If I take the ACT, should I still take SAT subject tests?

Session Length: aproximately 3 hrs.

The College Process

WaveLength has been nothing short of phenomenal. As the oldest, and with a foreign mother, my parents were very unsure of the college process but our meeting with Marlee cleared up all our questions and allowed us to approach college applications much more confidently. Her experience has made her one of the most valuable sources I’ve ever had in college information and I am so thankful to have discussed the process with her. To put this all in one sentence: I STRONGLY RECOMMEND WAVELENGTH SAT PREP. Thanks so much guys!

College Application Process

My experience with WaveLength tutoring and test prep has been exceptional. They have helped me so much in improving my math, reading and writing scores on the SAT. Also, when I started preparing for SAT subject tests, they were really helpful too. With their help, I was able to get that 800 for math! With their aid, I improved my score from my PSAT by 390 points! Furthermore, they were great in helping me during the college application process. I highly recommend them to anyone in need of a SAT tutor. They are extremely helpful and accommodating and help you reach your highest potential.
