College Application Guidance
Applying to college involves many important decisions—where should you apply? What should you write about? How should you present your accomplishments and unique personality throughout your application? These are tough questions, and we’re here to help you answer them. We share valuable insights with our clients. You can find some of them in news sources like CNN, Forbes, U.S. News and World Report, and Reader’s Digest. Applying to college doesn’t need to be stressful. Let’s talk about how we can help your family.
How We Work on Applications
Our team assists with all aspects of the college admissions process, from school selection, to essay writing, to the activities list, and to interview prep. We help seniors present themselves in their very best light on every part of the application. We assist them in creating a college list that best fits their academic and extracurricular interests, guide them through brainstorming, planning, and drafting their essays, and navigate other important aspects of the application process.
College Essay Guidance
The college essay is the hardest part of applying to college. It can also be the most stimulating and rewarding task you have before you.
Joyce Carol Oates, who knew a thing or two about great writing, once praised the personal essay genre for its “directness and intimacy,” and for “its first-person authority.” At H&C, our job is to help you find your own voice—to tell your story with both intimacy and authority.
Comprehensive Essay Package
We provide tailored college essay packages to fit your needs. Let us know which schools you are applying to, send along two-three ideas for your college essay, and we’ll arrange for you to meet via video conference with one of our essay specialists. Following the initial consultation, you will work one-on-one with a consultant via Google Docs or video conference to craft and edit your college essay and all your supplemental essays.
