What if you could get it all done NOW?

It's September, and some families of high school seniors are beginning to get a little anxious about the college process.  Most have visited colleges and gone to college fairs.  Many have collected information about cost and programs.  Some know the exact deadlines their children need to meet to get in.  But most families do not know that they should be preparing for college application submissions in SEPTEMBER and scholarships in OCTOBER of the senior year.

Effectively preparing for both the application and scholarship process requires some preparation.  One of the biggest concerns of prospective college students headed to selective schools (beyond gpa and SAT competitiveness) is the dreaded college admissions essay.  And many students refuse to apply for scholarships because of the dreaded scholarship essay.

The problem with the essays is that they are less familiar to high school students than other forms of writing. The process can be a challenge for students.  But it does not have to be that way.  On 5 Saturday mornings beginning September 10, a college admission and scholarship prep program is being offered by Rambo Research in Williamsburg.  The program will get college prep chores like essay development done in plenty of time for students to meet early college admission deadlines.  In addition to getting the essay done, the program will help students identify scholarships for which they qualify and test them to assess the best college majors for them.  There is a Sunday afternoon make up program for students who need to miss a Saturday session to take SAT exams.

For more information, see the Fall 2011 Workshop page on the Rambo Research and Consulting website www.ramboresearchandconsulting.com.  Register on the website or by clicking the following link:  

Rambo Research and consulting also offers individual services to help students prepare for admissions, essays, scholarships and the many choices that students and families face. Pam Rambo, Ed.D has over 35 years of experience working in college admission, financial aid, scholarships, advising and instruction.  Contact her at 757-253-2595 if you need assistance and advice.
