You’ve seen your friends, siblings, and other family members go through the stressful admissions process. You’re excited, but also a little anxious because you know how important an admissions-ready college application is.
You have no idea where you are in the process or what you need for your applications.
You feel like you’re dropping the ball.
Your parents are looking to you for due dates, but you have no idea yourself.
You’re constantly getting emails and pamphlets with broad and sort of useless info.
Have no idea how you'll afford the cost of college.
What if I told you that you could...
· Focus on the application without being stressed about what you need to complete it
· Cut down on overwhelm and uncertainty
· Sort the useful info from the fluff
· Free up time during your senior year by getting the ball rolling now
· Save a ton of money and make college affordable
I know that the college admissions process can be very confusing and overwhelming. If you don’t have a plan to follow or a checklist to mark to make sure you have every single thing you need for your application, the process can be very daunting. Without guidance and support, it is very easy to make mistakes that can cause you to miss out on being admitted to your top college picks.
This course comes with videos, PDFs and other resources to help you complete your essays, applications, and financial paperwork more easily. Please take your time going through this course at it will require time to really think about what was taught and how to apply it to your situation. I recommend a full year for students to get through their college applications, including six months for students to work on their essays from start to finish. But, don’t worry, because I will walk you through the entire process, one thing at a time.
"This course was absolutely incredible! I have worked for over 20 years as a school counselor and have been in education for almost 40 years and have never seen a course as comprehensive as this one. Elisia really thought about each step of the process and designed this course to be easy to follow for people who don’t have a strong background in college admissions. Her knowledge in college admissions and ability to explain complex concepts and share her experience in a way that is easy to understand is truly a gift.”– Jean L.
“I have four daughters and felt completely lost with helping them apply to college. This course made it so much easier for our whole family and reduced many arguments as we were all getting the same information and working from the same deadlines and her tips saved us a lot of money!” Nancy B.
Who this course is for:
- High school students and parents of high school students applying to college
Hi, I’m Elisia, Founder and CEO of College Insights.
As a leading expert in the realm of academic advising, college admissions, financial aid, and scholarships, my mission is to educate and aid students through the college admissions process beginning as early as middle school and extending through graduate school. Working in education for 17 years has afforded me opportunities to work with thousands of students from around the world. I’m currently the only Certified Financial Aid Advisor in the state of Washington, have my Masters in Education, and I am a Certified College Counselor. I have done it all- from curriculum development to admissions, including five years as a university professor and leading corporate education at a large global company. After working in admissions for almost 10 years, I know the process inside and out.
As a teacher, I naturally love working with students and seeing the look on their faces when something finally clicks. With college admissions, I find it to be even more rewarding because I know how much I'm impacting the rest of their lives. I love knowing that these students are not going to have to choose between paying off student loans, getting married, or buying a house. I love seeing a student succeed and enjoy their college experience because they chose a college that is right for them. I love being able to provide students and parents with options they never thought they had, and making a difference in every way possible.
