College Placement

Applying to college is a big decision. Grades and test scores only tell part of the story; they do not reflect the unique individual qualities of each student. At Barbara Leventhal Educational Consultants, we take ordinary students and help them to present their information in an extraordinary way that makes them stand out. This process takes time and effort, and Barbara coaches families through every step of the process.


Who are you? What are your passions? How will you achieve them? Those are all questions that students should apply to the college admission process. Below is a summary of the process we use to support students in preparing compelling applications.
