College & Scholarship Advising for High Achievers
High Achiever Advising Package
The High Achiever Advising Package provides a resource to help high school juniors and seniors navigate the college application and selection process. The ever-increasing cost of college is all the more reason to invest a significant amount of time, energy and effort in selecting a college or university that is right for you. The college search and application process can feel daunting and overwhelming. My goal is to empower students by giving them the information and guidance they need to make an informed decision and a wise investment in education. My focus is on the bottom line as student loan debt is becoming an increasing burden for students in the 21st century.
This package is specifically designed for:
High achieving students who will be applying as first-year, full-time freshman to traditional colleges. I work specifically with students who have strong academic track records (top ten in their class, National Honor Society members, salutatorians, valedictorians etc.) who:
- Want help navigating the college application process
- Are looking for significant merit-based scholarships to help them pay for school
- Need help identifying best-fit schools and programs to apply to
- Are keenly aware of student loan debt and are trying to minimize their burden
- Feel like they will not qualify for need-based financial aid yet are still concerned about college costs and unmanageable student loan debt
Note: If getting into an ivy league school is your primary/only focus, I am probably not the best-fit consultant for you. While I can help advise on applying to ivy leagues, I specifically help students identify options they may not have considered that meet their criteria and offer various levels of merit-based scholarship support.
How it Works
Here to help you make the best decision for you
We will work together virtually through phone calls, email and texting. As far as scheduling goes, we will mutually decide the day/time(s) we work together and schedule calls. I offer lots of flexibility including availability during evenings and weekends to accommodate busy family schedules.
High achieving students who will be applying as first-year, full-time freshman to traditional colleges are best-fit clients for this package. I work specifically with students who have strong academic track records (top ten, National Honor Society members, salutatorians, valedictorians) who want help navigating the college application process and are looking for significant merit-based scholarships to help them pay for school.
The best time to start working together is typically during the student’s junior year. This allows plenty of time for us to prep and get geared up for the fall of senior year, when the majority of applications are submitted. I do still work with seniors, the work we do together is more condensed and intensive the later we get started.
eQuez stands for “educational quest.” Our mission is to help students make informed decisions about higher education.
What Students & Parents Are Saying
This service saved me $70,000 and I continue to benefit economically and personally from all that the service provided.
There is more to the application process than visiting a college and signing a paper. We would never have known to put in the time to research all of the different colleges and that the Indiana Institute of Technology existed without Margaret’s help. She put in the research time, explained the process in an easy to understand manner, showed us how to find scholarships, helped us understand financing, and saved us a boatload of money!
“Highly Recommend” is the first thing I think of when discussing Ms. Feldman’s services. Ms. Feldman was personally and professionally interested in our daughter’s college search. Ms. Feldman’s expertise in researching college selections with our daughter made our daughter confident in her final selection. Our daughter greatly benefited from Ms. Feldman’s mentoring as well. We will certainly continue to work with Ms. Feldman once our next child begins their college search.
Our daughter is a High School student at Hilton High School, and we were fortunate enough to have the distinct pleasure of utilizing Ms. Feldman’s expertise and experience in assisting our daughter in scholarship applications/writing. Our daughter was the recipient of three scholarships this year (2013), and in large part was due to the assistance Ms. Feldman provided to our child to ensure each of the scholarships were professionally written and met all standards required by each individual committee. Although our daughter is bright and articulate it certainly was helpful to have an expert in the area of scholarship guidance, and mentoring of our daughter. Our daughter felt more confident and self-assured when submitting her final drafts to scholarship committees due to the care and concern she gave to our daughter. Our experience has been absolutely positive, and our daughter won every scholarship that was reviewed or discussed by Ms. Feldman. Our family could not be any more proud, and it is with much pleasure and distinct honor that we submit this testimonial on Ms. Feldman’s behalf.
Hilton High School Parent
eQuez helped me look at schools that I wasn’t really considering. Once eQuez ranked the schools according to what I said was important to me, it made me realize I was ranking my schools all wrong!
Thank you for the eRank! It gave me an idea of what schools I should consider attending based on my personal preferences (location, campus size etc.). As someone who just discovered Podiatric Medicine, and developed a strong interest in it while shadowing, listening to the podcast and watching eQuez videos of interviews with podiatrists on YouTube, I’ve found these to be great tools. I recommend every student who is exploring a career in medicine to take advantage of eQuez.
Super helpful and informative, and the people involved are very motivated to help students!?
