Why hire launchphase2?

The college admissions landscape is complicated, competitive and constantly changing, – especially in the current environment. Parents and students often feel overwhelmed by the daunting process. Typically, high school counselors have large caseloads and can spend only a fraction of their time on college counseling.

Considering the high costs of college attendance, launchphase2’s college coaching is a smart investment to save time, money and make informed decisions, – with less stress.

Ferah has coached both of my children as they were getting ready to start applying to colleges. We didn’t realize until then how daunting the process was, and how many moving parts it included. It was definitely a very overwhelming time for both of them, however Ferah was able to successfully have them apply to the colleges they were interested in. She provided so many questionnaires and checklists to help them narrow down their choices, guided them and mentored them through the process, offered many opportunities for them to drop in and get support while filling out forms and writing essays, and simply made it possible to do something that would have taken so much more time and effort to make happen on their own. They are both now attending the college of their choice, and are very happy where they have ended up. Ferah turned a very challenging prospect into something achievable, and we are all so very grateful for her caring help and broad expertise in the field. -Proud Parent H.S.
Our daughter applied to selective liberal arts colleges.  I have to admit that I was initial skeptical about using launchphase2, since I am a college professor, I went to Williams and taught at Amherst and Willamette, and I know a lot about these colleges.  Our daughter was finding our attempts to get involved stressful, as were we.  We were going in circles, and that's why we got Ferah into the loop.    We got a lot more from her services than we had realized that we might.  Yes, our daughter got into some great schools, including the school of her choice, and we were all extremely happy (and relieved) about how her applications came out.  However, she also got a real education about how to be systematic and thorough in making life decisions, lining up opportunities, and being thorough in researching and thinking through the choices that present themselves.    We have been amazed at the mature, thorough, and energetic way she has approached important decisions that she has had to make since then.  These were among the traits we hoped she would get from a college education, and she got a head start with Ferah.  She grew up so fast, she is off at college making her own choices now, and we are really happy that we made launchphase2 available to her before she left home.  – Dr. Ross McConnell
