College admissions committees are a tough crowd. You won’t gain their acceptance with generic, ill-prepared essays; they want insight, solid examples of your experience, quality writing and a genuine voice, to name just a few. Voice, especially, can offer admissions counselors insight into who you are as an individual. It’s a way to stand out from the pack—just be sure that it is your voice you’re using, and not something forced or adopted from someone else.     
What is PrepMatters Educational Planning? Educational planning helps students and families navigate a series of decisions and choices that they are faced with throughout their education, from high school preparation to the college admissions process, grad school and beyond. Successful educational planning requires knowing the student, knowing the schools, and knowing the current—and often changing—admissions landscape. We take the time to understand each of these components, enabling us to offer individualized advising for students and families.
The following is a list of colleges to which our seniors have been admitted. We are proud of you all!
PrepMatters is fortunate to have the University of Edinburgh visiting us here in the states in just a few short weeks! While the university name may sound foreign to some of you, this is a unique opportunity and there will be much to be learned about university systems in the UK at the meeting.
