Atlanta College Admissions Consulting
Atlanta and the surrounding area is home to some of the best colleges and universities in the country – Georgia Institute of Technology, Agnes Scott College, Emory University, University of Georgia – and while it’s easy to settle for any one of these fine institutions, you shouldn't limit your college search to any one area. A thorough college search should locate a geographically broad range of prospective institutions to ensure that the college you ultimately attend is one that meets your academic, extracurricular and financial needs.
At College Transitions, our team of college planning experts and education consultants helps guide Atlanta area students and families through every phase of the college search and application process; but our work doesn’t stop there. At College Transitions, we also provide you with support after college acceptance and oversee your transition from high school into a good-fit college. We’re committed to helping you throughout your first year of college, because we care about your post-secondary and professional success.
We serve more students and families residing in Atlanta than in any other location in the U.S., and our team has worked with students from the following high schools:
- Johns Creek
- North Gwinnett
- St. Pius
- The Walker School
- Woodward Academy
We commence our work with a preliminary review of your high school transcript (courses and grades) and standardized test scores, as well your student-activities resume, which details your extracurricular involvement in and around the Atlanta area and also lists any special talents you may have. We then perform a career and personality assessment to help you discover your interests, preferences and personal styles. Next, we help you develop your college list and find the colleges that are right for you and that represent the best match between your interests/credentials and the institution’s admission standards and offerings. We give you tips and advice on a standardized testing strategy, how to build your student activity sheet/resume, how to solicit letters of recommendation, and how to best plan for your college visits and college interviews. Our Atlanta-based counselors also guide you through each step of the college application and financial aid process, providing advice on how to complete your college applications, how to draft your essays and personal statements, and how to secure financial aid and scholarships. We also teach students and families how to weigh the pros and cons associated with each college into which they have been admitted, so they ultimately attend the college or university that presents the best fit for them. Finally, we position you for transition by helping you to select a major, choose the appropriate first-year courses, become acquainted with your college’s extracurricular opportunities, and learn about the academic support services at your college. We also remain available to answer questions and provide guidance on negotiating the academic and non-academic challenges of college transition, as well as offer advice on how to fully take advantage of your college experience.
The college admissions process has changed drastically over the past few decades and has become increasingly complex for many Atlanta area students and families. Let our team of expert college planners and counselors help you find and transition into a college that’s right for you.
