Although outcomes are important, Brownell Talbot’s College Counseling Department knows that each student’s success in college depends on their ability to look beyond college ranking lists and embark on a highly individualized process of self discovery, paired with an exploration of the full landscape of colleges.
Focus on Fit
BT’s approach to college counseling lays the foundation for students to build a plan focused on college fit. Students apply to colleges that meet their individual needs so that they are confident in their decision - one that will shape their next four years of college and beyond.
