Our Approach to College Admissions

At Endeavor Tutoring and Test Preparation, we believe a good application forges a coherent and persuasive whole.  It must not only communicate who you are, and well, but also demonstrate your “fit” in the schools to which you are applying.  We can help you construct your application in a way that underscores your accomplishments and brings out the traits that make you an exceptional candidate.

The entire college application process can appear daunting at first glance.  You have to figure out what colleges you want to go to, prepare for and take your college entrance exams, fill out often elaborate applications, get your transcripts ready, request recommendations from teachers and coaches, write your main and supplemental essays, and then make sure that everything actually arrives at its destination.

Contemplating these many hurdles alone can be overwhelming – a feeling that is only exacerbated by a host of stressful elements that go hand in hand with the process – from the pervasive competitive spirit among peers to the seemingly endless reminders of admissions challenges, from a recognition of the real importance of the task to needing to meet the requirements of your classes, your extra-circular activities and your sports teams.

Now, to be painfully honest, the entire college admissions process not only appears exacting. It actually is exacting.  It takes quite a bit of time and not an insignificant amount of money: mailings, taking the SATs and Subject Tests, sending out your scores, and, finally, the regular application fees, which get as high as $75 (at Yale, of course). It requires thorough research, introspection, self-expression, patience, discipline, and organization.
That said, applying to college is far from impossible, and, once you get the hang of it, even simple.

You already have the potential.  What you need is a guide and ally who can help you realize that potential and make it shine. At Endeavor, our college admissions consulting advisors know what the process demands and how to meet each of its many challenges with overwhelming success.
