The Best-Fit College List Process:
Best Fit 1 Meeting: 1-on-1 meeting with Sandy and the student over Zoom to set up surveys and questionnaires. (This meeting is just for the student and Educational Consultant (Sandy)- It is important that it just be the student- Parents will be included in the next meeting)
Best Fit 2 Meeting: The student and parent(s)/legal guardian(s) meet over Zoom to discuss survey results, testing results, big picture higher education, a testing plan, and activities suggestions. – This session is a minimum of 10 days after the Best Fit 1 Meeting in order to give our team enough time to gather and analyze the student's information and perform customized research.
During the final meeting, the student and family receive:
- 3 Student-Focused Reports:
