Extracurricular Profile Consulting (Pre-Seniors)

Creating a solid, unique personal profile throughout high school is essential to succeeding in admission to top-tier schools. We begin building toward this goal by first determining what exactly you’re passionate about — not interested in casually, but what you truly, deeply love to do. We build the profile around this passion and direct it toward impressive, creative activities.

Through research assistantships, independent projects, and competitive summer programs, we work together to produce not just a well-rounded resume, but also a single activity that stands out among other applicants. In a visual metaphor, we make you “round with pointy parts.” We work on the Extracurricular Profile throughout the year, developing both in-school and off-campus activities. Of course, summer is the time to fully attack the activities, and we begin working on summer applications as early as December.
