UNION HALL advising
We are just at the start of an unprecedented time in college admissions. GPAs and test scores still matter - but only within the context of a student's broader opportunities and personal story. Today, highly selective colleges are placing even more importance on subjective measures like intellectual curiosity, writing ability, and success in the adult world. Building character-driven narratives and revealing them in the application takes careful packaging. It's also what we do best. If your goal is to gain admission to a highly selective college or to get the most merit aid possible in this new world, we can help.

"incredibly happy

We’ve been incredibly happy with Union Hall. Everything they said they would do, they did. In our experience with other tutors and advisors, this is rare.”

We've been working with the team at Union Hall for years. They guided our son through high school. It's been great to have them at his side. There's no way he would have the resume he has now without their help.”

"they know what they're doing

We really liked the pragmatism of the leaders at Union Hall. They approached this like a project which helped quell some of the emotion and kept everyone on track. They really know what they are doing.”
