Application Support A Personal Guide to Navigating the Application Process

We build an application support program that fits your schedule, and your needs.

Undergraduate Admissions and the College Essay

The college application process can be incredibly daunting, for parents and students alike. The conversation may begin with the SAT, but the list quickly grows to include college visits, interviews, whether or not to apply early decision, the college essay, the short answer, supplemental essays, recommendations…it goes on. Choosing a college is a huge decision—for many high school students, it’s one of the biggest decisions they’ve ever had to make—and when you pile on all the work that goes into the application process, it can be a major stressor for students and their families. When you consider that all of this comes during the busiest and most demanding semester of high school, Senior Fall, and has to compete with the demands of sports, academics, standardized tests, other private tutoring sessions, and extracurriculars, it can seem…entirely overwhelming.

Unsurprisingly, procrastination is not the answer. (With many applications due January 1st, putting applications off until the last minute can make for a very un-happy New Year’s Eve—we’ve seen it happen, and it’s not pretty.) With a little planning ahead, and help from our admissions and college essay experts, you can avoid that kind of application triage.

At CATES, our experts have been here before, and can guide you through the process, from navigating the Common Application online, to interview coaching, to polishing your college essays. Whether you're in Rye, Cedarhurst, Chelsea or Park Slope, we build an application support program that fits your schedule, and your needs. We understand what colleges are looking for, and can help you present schools with best possible package, whether you choose to participate in our popular College Essay Workshop, or prefer private tutoring help with your essays and applications.

Graduate School Applications and Essays

Graduate school applications are just as demanding, if not more so—instead of sports and extracurriculars, many applicants are juggling full-time jobs, demanding undergraduate courses, and even families. Finding time to craft great essays and put together a really solid application can be difficult. As with our private tutoring and test prep programs, at CATES we build an application support program around your busy schedule, and help you put together an application that shows you off to your best advantage.
