Bonnie Rabin, PhD, provides personalized educational and college advising in Boulder, Colorado and surrounding communities. Whether your student’s goal is to attend a college in Colorado, at an in-state public or private university (University of Colorado at Boulder, University of Denver, Colorado School of the Mines, Colorado State), or an out-of-state Ivy League or National University or liberal arts college (Stanford, Cornell, Carnegie Mellon, NYU, Swarthmore , Bowdon or UCLA) Bonnie provides knowledgeable academic advising and college admissions planning to realize your college admissions and educational goals.

Your situation and academic goals are unique. Your college counselor should move way beyond using an online program such as Naviance. These are some of the questions to be answered:

  • What academic majors fit your long-term interests?
  • What undergraduate research institutes will prepare you for medical, law or business school?
  • Are SAT or ACT tests required?
  • How do you learn best and what campus community will allow you to continue to discover your personal and academic interests?
  • What high school curriculum will prepare your student for college success? (AP vs. IB vs AICE)?
  • Which universities are more likely to offer scholarships?

A Strategic Educational and College Admissions Plan

There’s no magic formula for being accepted into a selective university, but I can guide each family through the college application process as well as increase the likelihood that your student will be successful throughout high school, and have a seamless transition to their undergraduate community.

  • Building a challenging “synergistic” high school curriculum (AP, IB, AICE, Dual-Enrolled??)
  • Understand the College Admissions Process– Key Dates, forms and factors for success in admissions and in maximizing financial aid.
  • Create your curriculum map of high school and online programs to reach academic potential and prepare for success as a student and in the college admissions process.  The foundation of coursework in high school impacts your success as an undergraduate.
  • Extracurricular Activities:  Identify opportunities for enhancing and refining your activities addressing educational and admissions red-flags.  Embrace your strengths, take risks and discover uncharted paths!
  • Recommendations for relevant summer programs to increase your admissions chances and confirm / discover an academic area of interest
  • Personalized learning strategies to confidence, increase grades and address concerns in one or more classes. Customized solutions for better time management 
  • Recommendations for Colleges and Majors (conventional and “unusual”)
  • Clarity on standardized testing (and customized solutions for preparation) and discussion of colleges de-emphasizing their value in admissions decision making
  • Activities Resume: Receive proprietary tools to build an eye-catching “activities statement” supporting your summer program applications, Common Application and Scholarship applications.
  • Understanding the Real Cost of Education. Specific Strategies for your family and an explanation of Financial Aid and Scholarship Eligibility.
