Loretta and Molly, CBC Co-owners
"Each of our clients has unique dreams, interests, and talents that inspire us to identify opportunities best suited to their profiles."
The college search and application process doesn’t have to be scary, intimidating or mystifying. Our College Bound Consulting (CBC) team fosters mentorship, reduces anxiety, and delivers personalized expertise for students and their families. Why should you hire CBC?
We Are Proven
Since 2007, CBC has ushered hundreds of students and their families through the college admissions process. During that time, we have served students from over thirty high schools in the Chicagoland area and beyond, resulting in acceptances to over 150 universities. Our efforts have produced results: our students gain access to their top choice colleges, are awarded merit scholarships, are invited into honors programs or simply find the “perfect home” to explore their academic and personal interests.
We Are a Team
At CBC, we take teamwork seriously. We confer and meet regularly to discuss trends in education, to talk through client needs, and to share application tips and strategies. While each student has their own one-on-one consultant, our clients also benefit from the collective knowledge and experience of a team of experienced college consultants.
We Are Travelers
There is no better way to understand a college than through a visit. We encourage our students and families to get on the road and attend official information sessions and tours offered at campuses. We practice what we preach, traveling several times a year to dozens of universities around the country to better understand the landscape, allowing us to make more precise recommendations for our clients. In fact, we've made over 200 college visits.
We Are Anxiety Managers
We understand how daunting the college application process is, as well as the complexity and demands of our students’ lives. By setting realistic goals, both in the development of a college list as well as throughout the application experience, we take stress out of the process, allowing a thoughtful — and often fun — college search and application experience.
We Are Mentors
We work to understand our students. Our personalized counseling process helps us know their particular strengths so that we can point them to best-fit schools. Come application time, our guidance helps students to present an application that captures their aspirations, talents, and accomplishments in a compelling, authentic way. Through this process, students grow in self-awareness so that come decision time, they can confidently choose the right college.
