College Admission

At Project-College, we first discussed the term 'College Preparation', which refers to all of the activities designed to best prepare you for a successful college education. That phase customarily begins early in high school (preferably as a freshman) and ends at the point where you begin your college selection and admission application efforts.

This is also when you would transition to the 'College Admissions'.

During the 'College Admissions' phase, in addition to the tasks previously described in the 'College Preparation' phase, the following are examples of some of the tasks that you will need to complete:

  • Coordinate Final Entrance Testing (SAT / ACT)

  • Advanced Class Follow-ups (AP Exams, Transfer, etc.)

  • Advanced Resume Preparation

  • College Application Efforts

  • Finalized College Selection/Prioritization Criteria

  • Targeted College Fairs

  • Select College Visits (virtual and physical)

  • Continued Financial Aid Planning (Scholarships/Grants/Loans/FAFSA/etc.)

  • College Essay Preparation

  • Recommendation Letter Strategy & Preparation

  • College Applications (to include determinations of Common App)

  • College Interview Preparation (preparations and mock interviews)

  • Applications Strategy (Early Action – Decision/Application, Regular, Rolling, Late, Deferred, …)

  • College Acceptance/Rejection Reviews (to include any activities associated with 'wait-listing')

  • Final Acceptance Efforts (deposits, dorm assignments, parking, ids, etc…)

  • College Life Transition Preparation

  • College 1st Day Planning

  • Again, the tasks above are offered more of an outline of tasks normally associated with this phase. Each student is different and needs to be treated as such. That is a core value at Project-College… where we strive to identify on those differences, many of which may actually represent strengths. We do this through extensive one-on-one counseling and such practices as exploring what we call the '7-Stages of Identification', all under the structured and proven processes of a Project Management methodology.
