Barbara Shore College Admissions Consulting

The springboard to a successful college career.

Students who are admitted to their top schools aren’t lucky. They’re diligent, hardworking and, most importantly, well prepared.

I help students and families at every stage of the college process,

from creating a compelling college profile, building a meticulously balanced college list, crafting stellar, authentic college essays to acing interviews and evaluating offers of admission.

My students and I collaborate on finding the right extracurricular activities, preparing for the SAT or ACT, accessing financial aid and choosing the right college.

My approach to college admissions stems from proven strategies developed over many years in the field and continuous involvement in the changing landscape of higher education. My in-depth knowledge of the college admissions process and expertise in counseling enable me to approach students from multiple perspectives and provide the skills, guidance and information they need to thrive at every turn.

While the college process can feel overwhelming, by focusing on manageable and meaningful steps, I empower students to achieve their own success.

“Barbara was instrumental in helping our daughter navigate the college application process. Together, they created a thorough and practical plan for completing her college applications. Barbara was also able to help our daughter overcome her anxiety about writing her personal statements and the results were clear, engaging essays that gained her acceptance into numerous colleges, including Reed, UC Berkeley, UC Santa Cruz, UC Santa Barbara, Occidental and University of Puget Sound. Having Barbara’s expert help and guidance made the college application process far less stressful for all of us and it was a relief to know that my daughter was in such good hands. My daughter is now at UC Berkeley and we’re very grateful for Barbara’s guidance in finding just the right school for her.”
