Dear Students,

Whether applying to college is several years or several months away, the very idea of going through that process is surely a bit intimidating. That’s because there are lots of unknowns. You may ask yourself, “How do I even begin to think about it,” or “Which colleges would be best for me?” The question on every student’s mind is, “How am I ever going to find the time to study, take standardized tests, participate in all my extracurricular activities, research colleges, visit schools, write essays and fill out applications?”

Keep breathing, because it all will happen, and with careful planning, it won’t happen all at once! At Collegiate Blueprint we know you have incredibly busy lives, so working with us and getting an early start is really the key to managing these tasks. We can help you balance your commitments and responsibilities and make sure that neither you nor your parents become overwhelmed in the process.

Whatever your interests are, Collegiate Blueprint can help you find new and innovative ways to build on them. From the smallest details on your resume to brainstorming big ideas for your college essay, Collegiate Blueprint will be there to support and encourage you.
