Our college admission consultation packages are the very best way to create the most outstanding application possible and, thus, create the most options and opportunities not just for college, but for life. Tatum's goal is ALWAYS to seek the perfect college for each individual student, where they will truly thrive (versus merely survive) in college. This will set them on a path for lifelong success.
The package is divided into three primary phases:
Tatum does a very thorough intake that takes months to complete and analyze. This is the key to what guides her research in order to narrow down 3,000 colleges and universities to about 50 schools for the student to consider.
Tatum helps each student finalize their college list, create a student resume, advises them on courses to take and extracurriculars, advises them on getting reference letters, and assists with the completion of one essay (either UC or common app main essay).
The cost is $3,500 and represents about 30 hours of work for Tatum; if she goes over, the cost is the same unless the contract is set up otherwise (all contracts are customized).
Tatum will provide help with any remaining essays (the number of supplemental essays can range from zero to over 30!), interview prep (if needed), scholarship guidance, and review all applications. The cost for Phase Two wlll vary depending on the number of essays needed.
Tatum’s students get into about 80% of schools on their final list (12-20 schools on average).
99.98% of Tatum’s students have graduated (or are on target to) from the school that started at the school(s) Tatum recommended.
98% of these students have made honor roll throughout all of their college years.
75% have attended (and graduated- on time) graduate school.
