Ready to start your path to higher education with Top College Consultants?
Most families purchase a comprehensive package which includes a thorough review of transcripts and other documentation; assessment of the student’s needs and college readiness; creation of a highly customized college list, taking into account a student’s financial needs, acceptance chances and other relevant factors; extensive brainstorming and review of required and optional essays; and assistance with timely completion of college applications. The comprehensive package also includes interview prep and help applying to honors programs and scholarships as needed. You can read more about what’s included on the Services page or the College Admissions Timeline page.
Comprehensive package prices depend on the student’s year: $5000 for high school juniors/seniors, transfer students and college students applying to graduate school, and $6000 for freshmen and sophomores. The fee for high school seniors is $5500 after September 1, and $6000 after October 1.
Our new essay-only package is $2,500, providing unlimited assistance for up to 15 colleges.
For specific tasks (e.g., help with college lists or essays), the fee is $200/hour with a minimum initial $1000 retainer paid in advance.
All clients must sign the TCC agreement. If you have contacted us to discuss scheduling and fees, you may click here to Pay Now. You will need a valid credit card, but you do not need to have a PayPal account.
