Are you overwhelmed by the college application process? Does it feel like the college admission process is a race that you are late to enter and may already fall behind?
Have you found that your smart and capable student struggles to find the motivation to maximize their potential for their college applications?
Do you worry that if you are not equipped with all of the need-to-know information or you will make a mistake, and your child may not get into their ideal school?
Are you concerned about the high level of competition involved in getting accepted into great colleges?
Maybe you feel pressure from friends and family to do everything in your power to help your child attend a prestigious university. Or perhaps you have purchased books and other resources to learn more about colleges and the admission process, but they do not contain the specific information or offer the expertise you and your family need. Do you wish your child could attend his or her ideal college and move toward a successful and rewarding life?
Watching your child prepare to go to college can be exciting, but the college application process is stressful and requires a lot of time. Even though you know your child is a remarkable student, you still may worry about helping them make the best decision for the future. Busy schedules and time constraints may make it challenging for you and your child to find time to research different colleges and learn more about how to optimize their applications.
Many parents fear making mistakes during the college application process or worry they have not explored enough options for their child. These concerns are understandable. College is a launching point for success, and every parent wants to see their child excel in life. Parents also understand that times have changed since they attended college. In today’s world, college admission at high-level universities is more complicated and competitive than ever.
Imagine no longer feeling confused, overwhelmed, and powerless about this high-stakes process.
How would your life change if you and your student were in control of the long and complicated process of applying to college?
The peace of mind and confidence that your student is on the best path to a great college are in your reach. Reach out and schedule a session with me today!
I am Dr. Steven Mercer…
I am a college admission authority who coaches students through a once-in-a-lifetime rite of passage.
I am different than most private college admission consultants because I am a lifelong educator with professional experience as a university admission officer, a high school college counselor, and advanced academic training at the highest levels.
From all my admission experiences and training, I’m convinced that there’s no better way to provide college admission coaching than one-on-one. And therefore, I have devoted my efforts to create the best one-on-one private college admission program to serve my students and families to the best of my ability.
I work successfully with students of all types from around the world via Zoom. If you want to learn how the Mercer Method can help you and your student conquer this remarkable rite of passage, then book a session with me today.
Dr. Mercer was able to make the college application process as straightforward as possible. His thoughtful approach and online tools helped my daughter strategically plan each step of the process. Together, they developed a timeline for tasks to be completed and, with the online tools made available by Dr. Mercer, completing the tasks was a breeze. The combination of Dr. Mercer’s knowledge about every aspect of the application process and the resources he provided helped make the process manageable and uncomplicated. Thank you, Dr. Mercer, for your guidance and for making what we thought would be a dreadful experience a positive one!– Michelle Albritton, Westlake TX
Thanks for helping both girls with the college application process. I can honestly say a huge burden was lifted from my shoulders when we used your services. I felt I truly had an ally and someone who knew how this process worked. I believe both my children would not have been accepted by the school of their choice but for your professionalism and knowledge. It is without reservation that I recommend you.– Dr. Philip Haney, Roswell, NM
I wanted to thank you for all your help throughout my application process! I really don’t think I could have gotten to where I am without all your help. Even though I know you were helping many students during the same time you were helping me, because of your quick responsiveness and attentiveness, I felt as if I was your only client. Because of all your knowledge and experience, you successfully answered each question I had about the tedious application process. Thank you for making my experience applying to college as personal and as wonderful as it was.– Ashley Gharibian, Los Angeles, CA
I am very pleased with my experience consulting with Dr. Mercer. Our son had unique requirements as far as choosing a college. Steven quickly sized them up and made an excellent suggestion, one that was not on my radar. Our son is extremely happy with his choice.Furthermore, Steven suggested that this particular school might be willing to offer our family a cost-cutting package, under the right circumstances. I am happy to say that all that Steven suggested turned out to be true. He provided valuable advice.– Lee Rosenblum, Agoura, CA
Working with Steven online and 100% remotely was easy and convenient. Our online sessions consistently went smoothly, especially because he used the “screen share” feature on our computers to be able to view and edit my essays and resume virtually. He always provided thoughtful and specific comments, and I appreciated his dedication to preserving my voice in all of my writing. Having Steven’s guidance and support alleviated much of my college application-related stress and gave me increased confidence in my work.– Emma Weitzhandler, Seattle WA
We were very pleased with how smoothly Tyler’s application process went. There was still a great deal of pressure on our son, but he could anticipate and manage the process based on Dr. Mercer’s strategic planning. We believe his contributions were invaluable. We were thrilled with the breadth of Tyler’s options and thought he ultimately made a great college choice. I know it is your job, but you really did live up to what you promised, and we are delighted we found you.– Laura Landis, Murrieta CA
I hope you schedule a time to explore how we might work together.
