collegefitadmit.com College admissions consultants guide students through the application process

#Collegeadmissions is starting to wrap up. ED/EA students will begin to hear in December. Final RD deadlines usually hit in January but well-prepared applicants have submitted well before that.

Now peak #graduateadmissions begins. It’s both similar and quite different from

Just got word from a prospective client that my website is down. Admittedly, I’ve been so busy with my students that I haven’t been maintaining this page or my site very well. Please note that my contact information is working and I can be reached by phone or email. I can still take on a few clients depending on needs, so don’t hesitate to reach out. The consultation is free. And this photo captures the absolute essence of college admissions! Yes, really! 🏛📚📆
