College Counseling – Indicating Interest

The below should serve as a primer (we’re serious about this stuff!) on our philosophy – and open the way for an initial conversation.

We’re a small firm deeply embedded in the rowing community. Our mission is to develop athletic and (as a result) personal awareness in the clients we work with via the college selection and recruiting processes – thus developing them and the rowing community simultaneously.

We feel ethically bound to both the collegiate rowing community and our clients.

Though our clients are accepted at the most selective schools each year, we do not advertise or consider ourselves a superior consultancy based on this. Instead, we measure success on whether clients and the schools that accept them find mutual benefit over four years.

We evaluate each family on a case by case basis in terms of how much our services may benefit them and their specific needs. We prefer to initiate work during students’ junior (penultimate) year of secondary school though it is not a requirement; we may accept clients then assign a later start date based on our evaluation and consideration of the most effective path for each family.

Working with us involves:

  • Setting up a call to meet you, gather initial information, and answer any initial questions.
  • An interview between the student (coxswain audio is also appreciated) and their potential counselor.

While we’re happy to hear from you, we truly desire to limit ourselves to clients who are committed to gaining from their collegiate career by making a positive impact on their environment given our position and philosophy as a firm.

Talent is not a limiting factor so much as a willingness to engage the college and recruiting processes and achieve greater self awareness as a byproduct.
