Navigating College Admissions?

Navigating College Admissions?

Since 1993, I’ve helped thousands of students locate and get into their top choice schools.  How did I do that? I listened deeply to their dreams and goals.  I helped them find the right schools for them. I guided them every step of the way in navigating what has become a very complicated college process. And then, when the time came, using my unique, time-tested method, I helped them write stand-out college essays that wowed the admissions committee and made it impossible for them to say “No.”

You need a roadmap. 
And I’m here to give it to you.

I Want to Take the Journey Where Do I Begin?

From tackling personal decisions to reaching important milestones, my job is to guide you on one of life’s most important journeys. I am fueled by my commitment to individual growth, self-realization and success. I love my work and it shows.​

Every journey must have a starting point.

And we know what our goal is!  To get you into the school(s) of your dreams.

Now you must take the steps to get there.

The first step is a conversation.

You can call me, email me or book an INITIAL CONSULTATION now to get started.

Finding The Right Person to Guide You Why Choose Gabrielle Glancy?

Gabrielle Glancy, M. A.

Working in admissions for three different colleges and universities, I read tens of thousands of applications in the course of my career.  It was my job to decide who got in and who didn’t.

Now, sitting on the other side of the table, I know what it takes to get accepted at the top schools in the country.

I want to pass that knowledge on to you.

I am committed to helping students realize their dreams. What exactly does this mean?

It means getting great results through targeted one-on-one, expert help — SAT’s, AP’s, College Essays and Applications or simply test-taking and organizational skills.


Okay, focus and hard work are important too! 😉

I am certain that the rapport I have with students, and my ability to bring out the best in them, are the keys to my success.

As you’re learning, there’s lots of ground to cover in navigating the college process and I can’t wait to dive in with you. Let’s begin with this video in which I explain who I am and what makes me stand out from the crowd as a college counselor.


The conversation begins here.

The Process How It Works

The INITIAL CONSULTATION is a time to meet and greet and come up with a plan of action for the months to follow.

In the Initial Consultation, we will discuss such topics as:

  • Course Selection

  • Extracurricular Activities

  • AP’s

  • Standardized Tests — SAT/ACT, SAT II Subject Tests

  • Summer Plans

  • Service Opportunities

  • Leadership Opportunities

  • Recruitment Plans (when applicable)

  • Timeline for what needs to be done when

  • College List

  • College Essays

Most people come to me with a nagging sense that there are things they need to do to help their kids get into college.  They just don’t quite know what these things are.  By the end of this session, you will have a very clear idea of everything you need to know between now and the finish line.  You will know exactly what to do when to optimize the chances your son or daughter will get into the college of his or her dreams.  When you leave this session, you will have a roadmap to help you navigate what has become a very complicated college process.

The INITIAL CONSULTATION must be prepaid.  Subsequent sessions are invoiced at the end of the month.

Before meeting, I will review the documents that you have sent me in advance, so that we may hit the ground running. This is what I will ask you to send me before the Initial Consultation:

  • Writing Sample

  • Grade Reports

  • List of Extracurricular Activities

  • List of Courses

  • List of Possible Colleges

  • Any other relevant information:  Recommendations, Transcripts, Educational Testing Reports

During the Initial Consultation, we will make a plan for what to do next.  At this time, I can give you a clearer sense of roughly how many sessions will be needed.  Subsequent sessions will either be 45 minute Skype or In-Person sessions or online essay work.
