The average college student will change their major 5 times! Knowing exactly what major you will graduate college with and why you want to graduate with that given major can literally save you $38,000-$76,000 in college expenses; and 1-2 years of your life!
This Pre-Assessment ultimately enables you to narrow down to that exact flourishing choice of a major to save you both money and time. I do this by exploring: (1) your unique interests and talents, (2) opportunities for shadowings, externships, and internships, and (3) the ideal college.
The entire purpose of building your Master Resume (a resume that is for personal use only and includes all-things educational, professional, and philanthropic) is to help you be better prepared and equipped for finding scholarships and reducing your need for student loans.
Three major benefits are: (1) that you can remember what you have done (most of us forget all that we have done when asked in an application); (2) that you can refer to your Master Resume so it becomes easier and faster to apply for scholarships; and (3) that it can serve as a pool for scholarship opportunities.
In helping you with your Master Resume Building, my focus is to explore all of your educational, professional, and philanthropic background and aspirations so that we output the three major benefits mentioned above. I do this using 15 different relevant categories and show you how to put it all to practice.
There are over 3,800 accredited colleges and universities in the United States. Finding the ones that are a perfect fit for your unique preferences and aspirations can be overwhelming; however, it can certainly be done!
Through this College Tracker, and a combination of our Pre-Assessment strategies, I help you narrow your choices down to your top 7 colleges and universities. Additionally, you have a visual of your Colleges Tracker where you can quickly see important information such as: Priority and Regular Application Deadlines; Tuition and Fees; Room and Board; Average Financial Aid Awarded By Each College; Grants and Scholarships You Have Received From Each College; Grants and Scholarships You Have Received From Independent Sources; Percentage You Have Covered For Your Tuition, Fees, and Room and Board; College Student Body Size; Attractive Programs; and the Contact Information For Submitting Your Application.
For every 10 students who start a scholarship application, 9 of them will not finish it. The number one reason why students do not finish submitting their scholarship application is due to the fact that they also need to submit an essay along with it. Why? It takes on average 7 hours to write a final draft for that essay.
This Essay Tracker ultimately enables you to reduce the time spent on writing a final essay draft from 7 HOURS to 5 MINUTES! Additionally, I will show you ahead of time the top 10 most asked essay questions for scholarships and college admissions.
Based on my personal and professional experiences, I have created a couple of templates that can be used to ensure you are moving toward a Debt-Free College Degree™. They will help you optimize your time, resources, strategies, and plan of action!
There are three templates you will be provided with. The first one is a Master Resume Template (a resume that is for personal use only and includes all-things educational, professional, and philanthropic), which it helps you be better prepared and equipped for finding scholarships and reducing your need for student loans. Three major benefits are: (1) that you can remember what you have done (most of us forget all that we have done when asked in an application); (2) that you can refer to your Master Resume so it becomes easier and faster to apply for scholarships; and (3) that it can serve as a pool for scholarship opportunities.
The second template you will be provided with is Writing Your Unique Story Template. As you might have read, your story is everything! In business, we understand well that “People Buy People Before They Buy Product”. People will want to know your story before they will want to invest in you. Through this template, you are going to be able to draft your unique story and bring about key factors so that your chances of getting scholarships will increase drastically by writing a compelling essay to win scholarships.
Another, and final template you will be provided with is an Email Template To Ask For Recommendation Letters. Because of the competitive pool of scholarship and college applicants, I always encourage my students to diversify their "recommenders" so they can be considered as well-rounded students, leaders, and professionals.
Without a clear and well thought-through plan (or pathway [one that details the steps to take as you move toward your established goal, in this case a Debt-Free College Degree™]), it is 100% certain that you are not getting anywhere. It is like choosing to walk into a forest as opposed to a street. A pathway such as a street is easier to walk on, allows for faster progression, provides a better view of what is coming next, and has many helpful cues (lines, signs, protection barriers, etc.).
Through my 10+ years of experience in getting students ready for college, I have built a clear street/pathway (or curriculum) to assist you to move toward your Debt-Free College Degree™. It is designed in a way that it prepares and equips you to be beyond successful in your scholarship search and application. It is divided primarily in 2 major stages: Preparation and Application. It is a week-by-week pathway calling for specific actions and as well as weekly goals.
