Comprehensive Admission / Recruitment Package
Target: 11th-12th grade
Our Comprehensive College Admission Package includes an in depth interview of the student athlete and their family, a thorough review and analysis of his or her academic record i.e. (transcripts and test scores), extra-curricular resume i.e. (co-curricular participation and recognition, community service, experiences and hobbies) and a 90 minute on court assessment of the student’s tennis skills and fitness i.e. (ground strokes, speed and agility) resulting in objective strengths and weakness.
Considering these assessments we will establish the student athlete’s College Application Index©. The College Application Index© is a proprietary assessment tool that, based on our training, experience and research tracks 12 elements of a college application and yields the student athlete’s projected probability of earning admission and merit scholarships at any particular college.
Next, we will provide guidance and assistance through all dimensions of the college admission process including athletic recruitment. Considering the student athlete’s College Application Index©, and evaluation of tennis skills and fitness, we will identify an initial list of colleges that match their interests and goals and classify each according to the probability of earning admission and merit scholarships i.e (dream, reach, target or likely).
Furthermore, we will help the student athlete research individual colleges and understand their main and more subtle differences. Through on-going conversation with the student athlete and their family, and integration of where he or she may be a credible candidate for tennis recruitment, we will help narrow the list of colleges to those that are both a good “match” and “fit.” After producing a college recruiting video, and based on the final college list we will reach out to tennis coaches and provide college visitation strategy and application completion guidance.
In addition to the common application, which requires two essays, most colleges require their own supplemental essays. We will help the student athlete develop and edit essays that reflect their best self, while keeping them organized and on schedule. At the same time we will provide guidance on how to obtain the best letters of recommendation possible, and preparation for college interviews. We will also explain the advantages and disadvantages of applying Early Decision or Early Action and provide strategic advice.
If necessary we will provide letter of enthusiasm guidance for colleges that may have deferred or wait-listed your student athlete. Finally we will provide support and advice throughout the decision making and transition process.
