At Spiegel College Planning, we work one-on-one with students and parents to develop a thorough, carefully researched and appropriate college search, and guide the student through every step of the process.
Families engage the services of Spiegel College Planning on a retainer basis, for ongoing support and advice throughout the college research and admission process. Our mutual goal is to guide the student through a successful search, resulting in collegiate options that are the right match for that student, while minimizing the stress levels and avoiding some common pitfalls of the process.
Support is both in person, and via phone, email, and Skype. Guidance for students and families typically includes (but is not limited to): high school planning and course selection; activities planning; test prep advice and referrals; summer planning; college list development and list revision; application strategies; ED/EA decisions; athletic recruitment process; arts/music in the application process; campus visits; essay brainstorming and coaching; review of final applications; wait list strategies; and finally, discerning the best fit in making final enrollment option decisions in senior year.
