John’s mother called us regarding her son’s college application readiness. There was no rush since John had just started the 11thgrade. His mother wanted to see an evaluation as well as a road map of her son’s potential. In other words, she wanted us to prepare a report that would include academic recommendations.
Although John had just entered the 11thgrade, neither he nor his parents were aware of the importance of grade point average (GPA) at the time of college applications. John’s academic performance during 9thand 10thgrade was lackluster and his GPA from those two previous years was 2.89/4.00 (unweighted). He needed to increase this GPA. Further, since it was the first week of the fall semester (11thgrade), we were able to include some recommendations regarding course selections at his high school.
John increased his GPA to over 3.1/4.00. Since he has a clear picture of his potential, he is highly motivated toward his high school classes as well as his college applications (as reported by his mother). He completed the extracurricular activities suggested in the report and will continue more activities during the summer (just before the 12thgrade). Information (acceptance rates, SAT scores of accepted students, rankings, etc.) about the universities that we listed in the report also set specific goals for him and increased his motivation.
How EZ College Consulting Helped Him?
After a 45-minute pre-consulting session (25 questions) we identified all of John’s academic potential. We prepared a Road Map Report that especially focused on John’s previous academic progress (9thand 10thgrades). However, we knew that he needed a road map that would help him to increase his GPA to over 3.10/4.00. We recommended changing 2 classes in his current schedule. In the report, we also suggested ways that he could increase his SAT scores. We specifically highlighted those resources that were convenient for him. When designing the report, we always used a motivational language. Further, we highlighted potential extracurricular activity developments for John. Lastly, since John had already decided his college major, we were able to prepare the list of schools that best matched his profile (college list broken down into safe school, best match, and “let’s try” categories).
I received assistance on my personal statement. As an international applicant (graduate level), I struggled a lot although I needed to complete something in 1,000 words. The team helped me a lot and I was able to complete it in three days. It looks perfect now. Thanks. — Hijen
Road Map Report gives you tailored details. You can modify the report with respect to your needs. We needed a “best match” school list in the New Jersey and New York City area for our son. We received a very clear picture of 7 universities and computer science majors. The report was very convincing and motivational for our son. — Mark
I needed a simple solution for my son’s applications. Something easy to understand. Something that will answer all of my questions. The road map report was extremely helpful for myself as a parent and for my son. — Olivia
We received assistance for a college essay. It sounds very easy to complete a 650-word essay but believe me our daughter spent days on it but nothing impressive came out. Dr. Acar helped us and in a couple of days we completed a very effective personal essay. We are very happy to with him. He was always timely, responsive, and helpful. Great experience. — Silvia
I think all I needed was a holistic approach for college applications. I needed to see every aspect and step for college applications and planning. The report helped us a lot. I highly recommend the service. — Penny
I specifically liked some parts of the report since we were confused about the extracurricular activities for college applications. We wanted more emphasis on possible opportunities. The report highlighted individualized possibilities for extracurricular activities outside of school. Thanks… — Deborah
Reasonable price, fast service, unique approach. — John
We purchased the full service and Dr. Acar clarified every step for the applications. The most important parts were about selecting the best-match colleges and writing the personal statement. Things went well and my daughter is at her dream school. — Mia
Dr. Acar helped us to complete our college essay and I am very sure that it is looks very good now. Thanks. — Daniela
Early planning for college applications is important but we did not know what exactly we should do. High school counselors are extremely busy and their recommendations are very limited. We purchased a high school planning report for our son [which] included classes that he will choose and extracurricular activities that he will attend. There were many other personalized recommendations in the report and we are far more comfortable toward college applications. — Emma
