  • Online College Advising provides access to knowledgeable and personalized attention in an incredibly flexible-scheduling model to fit your needs and from the comfort of your own home. Meeting online is seamless with the same personal connections formed over the course of many meetings (and phone calls, emails and text) where we collaborate to answer all your questions and meet your educational and college admissions goals.
  • Many of our students are engaged and busy with extracurricular schedules.  My online model allows us to schedule on short notice and/or during nights and weekends. Communications occur via e-mail, phone, and most often through virtual platforms (Zoom, Skype, Google Hangouts, etc.), where we are able to respond to families’ needs quickly.  My client’s success  is due to my responsiveness and unique knowledge set, rather than  geographic proximity.

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?

Online College Advisor Bonnie Rabin, PhD provides personalized and knowledgeable educational and college planning. Whether you’re invested in your state’s tuition plan or you’re applying for scholarships and financial aid, we’ll discover the best college “fit” for your family and student’s educational and personal goals. It’s indeed never too early to begin COLLEGE ADMISSIONS PLANNING!
