Admission to U.S. colleges and universities is an ever-more complex and competitive
challenge. My College Advisor offers students and their families extensive personal
consulting services that guide the entire process to successful completion.
Beginning with MCA’s comprehensive Student Assessment, your consultant will guide you to explore your unique potential as a student, contributor to your school and community, and potential leader for the future.
Your consultant will work with you to develop a comprehensive college admissions strategy, with advice on your high school course selection, standardized admissions tests, and extracurricular (including summer) activities. Through a process of developing preliminary college lists, virtual tours and campus visits, followed by debriefings with your consultant, MCA will guide you to a final list of best-fit colleges.
MCA services cover all aspects of the application process, including advice on choice of recommendation writers and cover letters to them, simulated college interviews with review, resumes, and portfolios. Your consultant will also work with you through all stages of your college essays, from brainstorming topics to final edits. We help students develop persuasive college application essays that represent a high level of self-reflection and literary expression.
MCA students typically gain acceptance to most, if not all, of their top-choice schools. MCA consultants help students and their families make their final college decisions and show them “How to Make the Most of College.”
