Discuss Goals & Next Steps
To start the process, all prospective students will receive a phone consultation with our college counselor. The purpose of this consultation is for our team to learn more about you: your interests, academic record, and admission goals.
Figure Out A plan of Action
Your Zinkerz counselor will advise you on your curriculum, academic interests, extracurriculars, supplementary test preparation and courses, and college visits. Your counselor works with you to develop a college list that balances your applicant profile with your future education goals, and creates a plan of action to ensure you gain admission to schools of your choice.
Essay & Application
COMPLETE APPLICATION PACKAGE
Your counselor will help you create a winning application package. You’ll work with your counselor to brainstorm and develop essays that answer the required prompts, and our editors will help you edit your final draft. Your counselor will also help you choose recommendation letters and showcase your extracurricular activities.
SEND YOUR APPLICATIONS
Let us worry about your application deadlines. Your counselor will compile and review your application package, ensure you’ve completed all the necessary documents, and prepare you for any interviews. Once you hear back from schools, your counselor will help you select a college or university that best fits your interests and potential.

Zinkerz works miracles. My son had a difficult time in high school, and so we weren’t sure college would be an option for him. Zinkerz helped my son identify his goals and become a competitive applicant at schools we never thought possible. A year later, we are overjoyed to see my son at a college where he is not only happy but excelling both academically and socially. Zinkerz opened the window of opportunity for my son, and helped him find his motivation to continue building his own path, thank you Zinkerz.
