Know before you go…
Most people ask for help from those who they are closest to. Unfortunately‚ Mom & Dad may not be the best advisors when it comes to helping you decide what to do with your life. In fact‚ most people‚ even those who dearly love you‚ will still give you advise based on THEIR personality‚ experience‚ and current life circumstances. In other words‚ most people give you the advice they need to take themselves.
Many of them made the wrong choices and ended up poor‚ fired‚ divorced‚ or at least unhappy‚ and so their advice is questionable. The best thing they could tell you is “I don’t know. You are going to have to figure it out for yourself.” However‚ once they tell you that you are back where you started… still needing help.
MAPS was developed with these students in mind… with ME in mind! MAPS helps students figure out WHO they are, so then they can figure out WHAT they can do. MAPS will give students their top strengths and we can then develop a list of majors that will BEST compliment who they are as a person. Once we figure that out, we can then generate a list of colleges and universities that would BEST suit their individual needs. And we can do it for a fraction of the cost of other counseling options.
College Life Planning does offer a comprehensive list of counseling options, but if you want my honest opinion, using MAPS would be the best, most affordable way to build a college list, choose a school, select a major, and build your College and Career path on!
