Based on our consultation, I will begin the process of refining the list of potential colleges that meet your requirements and goals.
Refining the list
Thousands of Colleges will be refined down to a list of perhaps 30-40 prospective Colleges for your consideration.
A deeper look
The list will be further refined to a list of 15-20 for you to consider more deeply and visit if possible so you may see them first hand.
The short list
Finally, a list of roughly 10-12 to apply to. Usually this will consist of three ‘likely,’ four to six ‘target’ and three ‘stretch’ colleges.
