everything you need

UNION HALL advising
strategy & execution
Every one of Union Hall’s service packages is personalized to meet you wherever you are in the application process.  All include expert guidance from leading admissions advisors to help your student gain acceptance at their dream college and maximize merit aid.
The Blueprint Service
Whether your student is a senior getting ready to apply to college, or a freshman planning out the next four years, anyone can benefit from a Union Hall Advising Blueprint. This is a service for families that want our expert guidance but don't want a lengthy engagement.
Here's how it works:
  • You fill out an intake questionnaire that gives us everything we need to know about your student
  • We review it ahead of time in preparation for a call with you, your student and our Head of Admissions Advising
  • We spend an hour on the phone together, understanding where your student is now and where they want to be
  • During our call, we create a strategic roadmap with specific action items to get you where you want to go
  • After the call you'll have everything you need to execute your college admissions strategy either with us as your partner, or on your own
