How it works

THE PROCESS

Our roadmap for success is personalized for each student we work with. Whether you are a high school Freshman or Senior, looking to transfer or apply to post-graduate opportunities, or anything in between, we help guide you every step of the way. While each student’s journey looks a little different based on their needs, all students benefit from a flexible process and individualized attention

Discuss Goals & Next Steps

To start the process, all prospective students will receive a phone consultation with our college counselor. The purpose of this consultation is for our team to learn more about you: your interests, academic record, and admission goals.

Figure Out a Plan of Action

Your Zinkerz counselor will advise you on your curriculum, academic interests, extracurriculars, supplementary test preparation and courses, and college visits. Your counselor works with you to develop a college list that balances your applicant profile with your future education goals, and creates a plan of action to ensure you gain admission to schools of your choice.

Complete Application Package

Your counselor will help you create a winning application package. You’ll work with your counselor to brainstorm and develop essays that answer the required prompts, and our editors will help you edit your final draft. Your counselor will also help you choose recommendation letters and showcase your extracurricular activities.

Send Your Applications

Let us worry about your application deadlines. Your counselor will compile and review your application package, ensure you’ve completed all the necessary documents, and prepare you for any interviews. Once you hear back from schools, your counselor will help you select a college or university that best fits your interests and potential.
