Laura has simplified and demystified the college application process for seniors through the creation of her Senior Checklist and College Application Deadline Chart. Through collaboration with Laura, students can be assured that they will have all components of their applications completed accurately and timely through an individualized plan developed in alignment with your high school’s college application policies. Getting a head start on the application process the summer before senior year will ease the stress associated with the process and enable seniors to fully engage and be present senior year. I look forward to working with you and your student to achieve their future academic goals.
