225 Promote Yourself to Colleges

Discover the Fundamentals to Properly Marketing and Promoting Yourself to Colleges,

Properly marketing or "selling" yourself to colleges increase your chances of admission and increase your chances of scholarships.

There are secret benefits and serendipities that are associated with properly marketing and selling yourself to colleges. It is essential that the student understand The Right Way to Pitch Yourself to a School.

Here is a story about my daughter. When we identified colleges, there was one school that popped up as her favorite. She then aggressively “marketed” herself to this college. The other college on her list was not marketed to properly. The result is college A offered her a very nice scholarship package. College B offered her a $1,000 teaser token scholarship. Both colleges were in the same price zone. College B’s thought process was to save the really good scholarships for the students that they really wanted to recruit.

Why did the first college offer her an exceptional scholarship package? Discover that in this class. *By the way, she was offered $19,600 in total which is much much better than a pittance $1,000. Some students have received 1/2 tuition, full tuition and the coveted Full Ride Plus by proper positioning and marketing.

In general colleges want to extend offers of admission to students who are sincerely interested in attending. Students who have low interest are clearly less likely to accept an offer of admission, and if they do accept, they are more likely to transfer to a different school. This messes up the colleges ratios and numbers.

The purpose of this class is two points.

  1. To systematically get on a college’s radar
  2. To gather more information about the college

By systematically using the proprietary strategy, College Touch Points, the student can gather information about the college to help them determine if they really do want to attend that college. Too many students do not do enough (and sometimes no) research investigating a college. The result is the student is frustrated, or hates the school. This end result might be that the student drops out of college all together, or transfers and looses a ton of credits.

When a college identifies a potential recruit, there are specific things that a college looks for in a student. When the student puts those things in the forefront, colleges are more eager and in many cases more willing to offer some kind of scholarship.

The purpose of this Boot Camp is to instruct the student how to market themselves to colleges to increase their odds of admission with scholarships.

The sooner a student starts this process the better the results.
