Wendy and Susanne have the opportunity to connect with a large number of universities nationwide. Coast 2 Coast consultants attend regional and national conferences to stay current with admission trends as well as develop relationships with admissions officers.
We like to work with students as early as eighth grade in order to carefully monitor a student’s pattern of coursework, select curriculum, and discuss extracurricular activities.
Wendy and Susanne require all four forms to be completed two days prior to your appointment. Dr. Gilbertson and Susanne Condon will carefully review all documents before your meeting. The consultation is a one-hour meeting with student and parent.
