Patti Schabinger is a dedicated professional who strives to guide families and students of all abilities with expertise, integrity, and individualized assistance throughout the college admissions process. My goal is to guide families as they do a college search for a best fit and to lessen stress as students explore majors, discover postsecondary options, and complete applications along with required essays. I help keep students on track with deadlines and by breaking down tasks. Parents are kept informed along with students with a To-Do list after meetings. While no guarantee can be made for entrance into a specific institution of higher learning, I strive to assist students to give them the best opportunity for success. A limited amount of students are accepted per year to keep guidance personal and timely. Guidance may include interview practice, personality surveys, strengths assessments, course advice, details for campus visits, scholarship and financial aid information, and other college related topics depending on family need. The expertise, training, and knowledge offered by Patti ease anxiety to make college admissions more manageable and enjoyable!
