Rising Senior TO DO LIST

More on what your rising senior should be doing this summer in this post.

Introducing the College App ZAP

This six-week program will give your rising senior all the info they need to build a balanced college list, present their activities effectively and write compelling essays.  ZAP students will attend six live group meetings with Magellan founder Evelyn Jerome-Alexander, as well as two one-on-one meetings with one of our trained college counselors.  ZAP students may also send final college essays for review.

We will run this program two separate times with identical content (ie choose one, not both):  Thursdays in June/July (6/10-7/15) for those who want to get started over the summer, and Sundays in Sept/Oct (9/12-10/17).  At $795, this is truly affordable college application guidance!  You can add time if you want.

The “How Does College Admission Work” series:

College admission looks very different today than it did when we applied 20-something years ago.  Admission rates are a fraction of what they were when we applied – and the process is much more unpredictable.  You can work with your child through the process, but it’s ok to ask for help from experts.
