What are colleges looking for?

July 26, 2016

It's almost August – The new school year is starting and my focus will be on assisting my clients rather than bringing in new students.  If you ever had the inclination of working with me – now is the time to jump on board.

 

Seniors – You should be getting phone calls and/or texts from college coaches so you can begin to narrow down your list after Labor Day – if you are not you are behind.  If you are, what are you doing about it?

 

Juniors – The mail/e-mail campaign should be in full force – college coaches are flooding the inboxes of 2018 grads with requests for fall schedules and/or video so they can get eyes on.

 

Sophomores/Freshman – Every college in the country is trying to get information.  Right now you are a “lead” and over the next year colleges and coaches will take that lead and turn it into a prospect or not a prospect.  If they never have the lead – they never get to turn you into a prospect. The earlier they get the lead, the greater the chances of finding the right fit.  Starting now does not mean you are committing – it just means you are giving yourself (or your child) a fighting chance.

 

The reality is THIS IS HAPPENING – Coaches are calling seniors right now, they are e-mailing juniors right now and they are filling their databases with sophomores and freshman to get their eyes on, right now.  Be sure you know what counts most and don’t miss the boat – if this is not happening for you – it's time to find out why and do something about it.
