College Admissions +
College Admissions can be overwhelming. We work to lessen the stress and foster greater success! With College Essay Writing assistance and College Admissions advisement – Resource Room can walk students through the entire application process, including the Common App Essay and any supplemental essays the schools of their choice may require.
About our College Admissions Services
While In-School College Office and guidance counselors offer as much help as they can, many are simply inundated with hundreds of students. We cater to your individual college portfolio to ensure every student has a professional and substantive college essay topic and resume.
We work to provide assistance with supplemental essay questions as well and work with parents and students to round out a comprehensive list of schools with a focus on submitting applications for the early action deadlines. (Generally set for the beginning to middle of November.)
The Resource Room Approach
One of the most important decisions students and their parents must make is which colleges or universities would be the right fit. Factors to consider include:
- Student GPA
- Student SAT/ACT Scores
- Completeness of Application Portfolio
- College Essay and (if required) supplemental essays
- Financial Cost of Attendance
College Admissions decisions can be overwhelming at first, but with proper planning the process can be much more manageable. Mr. C, the Director of The Resource Room College Office, has years of experience as a College Admissions Officer at the University level and has been a Senior Adviser at the H.S. level. His experience working at the University has provided an inside understanding of the formulas colleges and universities use for the admissions process. His expertise is unique and distinct from other providers.

When should we start looking at Colleges?
Sophomore year introduces students to the PSAT. This test is important, and many students do not prepare for this exam with a sense of urgency. In the past, the PSAT was generally regarded as practice. This is still the case, however, a high score on the PSAT could qualify students for National Merit Based Scholarships. Over the past 10 years, Private College tuitions have nearly doubled, and scholarship assistance is more important now for families than ever before. Proper PSAT prep could help qualify a student for a significant financial reward down the line.
OUR PSAT TUTORING AND PREP PROGRAM FOCUSES ON:
- Introducing students to the basics of the exam
- providing quality strategies for test taking
- Stamina and Focus drills
- Practice Tests, at home assignments, and personalized instruction in Center
High School Juniors are encouraged to come and meet with our staff as soon as possible. We will facilitate the process of looking at colleges, their requirements, tuition, and how to complete your college applications to highlight each student’s strengths to highlight a distinguished applicant.
