RETAINER OPTIONS for TRANSFER ADMISSIONS
APPLICATION GUIDANCE Retainer Options:
DISTINGUISHED COLLEGE APPLICATION GUIDANCE
For parents, whose children are seeking transfer to colleges requiring complex applications and thus the concomitant level of admissions selectivity, endeavoring to minimize risk of strategic missteps and college malinvestment, we recommend Distinguished College Application Guidance retainer.
CMC’s experts will guide transfer students through a rigorous self-reflection process essential for crafting insightful autobiographical college essays. Furthermore, applicants can also discover their aptitude, an awareness that will become the compass needed to seek out opportunities in college and throughout their life.
Additionally, our seasoned advisors moderate conversations, counseling parents and students in reaching a consensus regarding their student’s college plans, as well as manage the intricacies of the college application process.
TARGETED COLLEGE APPLICATION ASSISTANCE
Strategic guidance delivered at timely intervals for transfer applicants who are either attempting to complete college applications with limited complexity and modest selectivity or for those who although are completing more rigorous and selective applications, can collaborate with our expert advisors in sporadic, yet advantageous confabs to effectively complete the college application process.
In addition, CMC’s advisors also counsel parents about how to best support their children’s educational goals, often dispelling college admissions myths heard from other parents, while providing accurate and up-to-date information about the admissions process, lessening the risks of strategic missteps due to inexperience.
FOUNDATIONAL TRANSFER ADMISSIONS GUIDANCE
Parents and students in need of strategic guidance, but not exactly sure to what amount and when are confident that when confounded they can depend upon CMC’s experts to advise them as needed throughout the college admissions process on issues which can include, editorial advising through any stage of the writing process, answering technical application process questions from requesting letters of recommendation to preparing for admissions interviews, as well as guidance to articulate a vision based on an understanding of one’s aptitude.
SINGLE STRATEGY Retainer Option:
SINGLE TRANSFER ADMISSIONS STRATEGY SESSION
CMC’s experts moderate a conversation during a single strategic session between parents and their children attempting to devise a strategy for navigating the complexities of the college admissions process, which includes both college selection as well as the elaborate, increasing complexity and subjectivity of the college application process. Finally, we’ll initiate the college essay idea-generating process, integral to submitting insightful applications for admissions.
ACADEMICS Retainer Option:
To write, to express, is essential for beings to thrive, not just survive. Although in school they teach many ideas and skills, writing is seldom one of them. Many students write to survive academically, seeking to emulate the teacher's voice in order to meet the standards necessary to achieve the desperately sought after grade.
Many students, although they learn to play the academic grade game, often lose their unique writing voice in the process and by default, the ability to seek truth and understanding. Some students unable to write in their authentic voice begin to suffer academically, becoming even more misunderstood as a result.
We have been teaching writing and playing the role of editors for over twenty years and can help any aged student improve their written communication not only for academic assignments, creative writing, college or graduate school applications, but also so they can (re)discover their genuine sense of self, the internal compass that guides us all.
We teach students the magic of the writing process which they can adapt to any type of writing they choose or are assigned, and through guided practice, learn how to format their writing in order to effectively convey their ideas.
Additionally, parents gain detailed and expert educational insight about their student’s written communication, as well as recommendations to support their student in regaining confidence in their writing ability.
To write is a gift that should not be wasted, set aside because tedium inherent in academia has consumed the student’s willingness to express their most intimate thoughts, feelings and desires, secrets of the soul essential to be exposed so as to guide their choices, enrich their understanding of the world, in the quest for peace of mind they were born to find.
