adventure or a nightmare.

The College Search - An Odyssey for the Dedicated Adventurer

Applying to college should be a fun, exciting time, but it should also be a growth experience. As you search for the right college, you examine not only where you want to live and study for the next four years, but also who you are and what you want from life. If done right, your search will take you to places in yourself that you never before imagined, opening up questions that you will be exploring for decades to come.

Once you have met and overcome the challenges your college search will present you, you’ll be a different person. You’ll not only have solved the riddle of where to apply, you’ll have gained the knowledge, confidence and experience you need to become a successful adult.

The Catch:

Gathering all the information you’ll need, organizing it, keeping on top of deadlines, and preparing yourself to do your best on the SAT or ACT tests can be difficult to do all on your own. Without practical, experienced ideas on how to approach the process, you can go in blind and end up hating it. So many forms to complete, applications to fill out, and tests to take; so many e-mails from colleges telling you how wonderful their campus is—you can feel overwhelmed.
