Dear Teen,

Does this sound familiar?

Every time you think about beginning the college search you feel anxious, confused, and overwhelmed.

      Worse, you know that time is running out to manage this process without it taking over your life.

When your friends start talking about colleges, you worry that you won’t find a college that will accept you—and that you like. While you realize there are thousands of colleges, you just don’t know how to start looking.

Your parents are trying to be helpful, but conversations are often brief and sometimes tense. You want your parents to be involved in the college search but you haven’t figured out what that looks like yet.

The contact you have with school counselors and advisors is infrequent and oriented to completing paperwork. Your guidance counselor has so many students to see and you haven’t been able to develop a relationship, so you’re not sure how helpful school based resources will be for you.

Well, I have GREAT news for you—you are SO in the right place right now.

My name is Jill Greenbaum, and I am known as The College Coach. Why? Because helping teens find the colleges that are right for them is what I do best!

In fact, I have gotten SO good at it and love it so much that, just over a year ago, I developed a coaching program that supports students in a virtual setting and uses an online environment.

It started with being involved in my daughter’s search for the colleges that were the right fit for her. I learned from what my daughter, and we as her parents, experienced in the long and challenging journey.

As our daughter completed her selecting the colleges that were the right fit for her, I began developing coaching materials for her peers that were still slogging through the process.

Then I developed my private six session coaching program for teens, Finding the Colleges That Are the Right Fit! and sharing elements of it on local, regional, and national conference stages.

And, I had my own radio show, College Bound & Determined, which enabled me to learn even more about the college search from experts in a variety of fields. After a year, my show was racking up over 7,000 downloads per ratings period.

I share this with you so you can know that I’ve learned a thing or two about a thing or two. I took a quantum leap from learning and working with my own daughter to speaking to thousands of students and hundreds of parents every year, coaching teens, and now converting my live coaching program into a book, ebook and group coaching program. I have the path to results for teens committed to the process.

What’s my secret? Well, here it is in a nutshell.

Making the GRADE!

Yes, all of my work is founded on this path.

It’s the easiest, fastest, least expensive way to make the short list of colleges that are the best matches for you!

In fact, using the 5 steps of Making the GRADE is the BEST way to create your list! The 5 steps are:

GOALSET—get clear on who you are, by identifying your strengths, needs, wants, and challenges, both academically and socially

RESEARCH—learn about the path to choosing colleges, where you are on the path and what colleges seek in students

ANALYZE—appraise your academic record and extracurricular activities, and draft a list of colleges

DECIDE—determine the colleges that are the best matches, move forward with completing applications and interviews for a select group of colleges

EVALUATE— reflect on who you are becoming and choose which college environment will enable you to thrive

But there’s a catch. As simple as reading the book and being part of a group is, it’s not easy to get the results you desire. (As many of you probably struggle with this first hand, there’s lots of information out there and paperwork you can complete, but if you are not asking the right questions, it’s a pointless exercise.) If you don’t know what you’re doing—or you think that you can just complete applications to schools others believe are right for you—you can EASILY waste hundreds of hours with little to show for it, in terms of results you can feel confident about.

So having a full understanding of the steps on the path is crucial to your success. But that’s only the beginning. You ALSO need to:

Commit to the coaching partnership, reading the book, completing the MajorInYou (MiY) Maps, and using the resources. If you don’t engage fully in this process, it will be impossible to achieve the results you desire.

Now, you may have visited a few college information sites, checked out some colleges family and friends have recommended, read a book or two about the college search, and even started the paperwork from the guidance department.

But it’s STILL not working, is it?

That’s because you don’t have my ENTIRE system. You see, I have this down to a science. I know EXACTLY what you need to do and HOW to get the best results.

Plus, there are things that are crucial to do—and you might be skipping them because you don’t think they’re all that important!

You see, it’s not your fault that you still struggle to find the colleges that are the right matches. No one has EVER put together a system like this one. Typically you’ll get maybe a piece of the system (and most likely it’s from someone who doesn’t use my visual coaching approach) but you won’t see the WHOLE thing. For instance:

Will you learn all the steps of the journey, so that you always know where you are and where you are going?
Will you learn how to assess your world right now and use that information to make your plans?
Will you learn to understand your strengths, needs, and challenges to develop insights that will guide you to your best matches?
Will you learn to recognize and use your strengths during the college search, especially during the more challenging aspects?
Will you learn how to use your school and life experiences to prepare for essays and interviews, so you can streamline the steps and feel confident?
Will you see examples of how to use your values to find the right colleges, so you can know that you will feel comfortable on campus?
Will you be offered tools and resources to support you and your parents in this important journey?

It’s VITAL you get all the pieces of the puzzle, because if you don’t, chances are you’re not going to thrive during this process.

That’s why I’m now ready to SPILL THE BEANS! You’re about to get my ENTIRE system for finding the best matches!
