How Does The NxtGen Boost Work?

The NxtGen Boost system is our tried and true, simple process for uncovering the perfect-fit-potential of your college list and developing a road map to your ideal vision of the future. It is perfect for families that just need the initial steps in the right direction and won't get overwhelmed by this entire process doing it without the assistance of a professional. This package provides valuable information about best fit colleges for your student. 


Here are your 5 simple steps to college admissions clarity...

Step 1: Schedule Your First Meeting

You can click here to select the best date for your meeting. Please be sure to read the cancellation policy.

Once you've scheduled your first meeting you'll be all set to meet on Zoom at a time that's perfect for you and your family.

Step 2: Meet Your Private College Counselor

During your first Zoom meeting, you, your family, and your college counselor will explore your college experience vision and future plans. 

You'll discuss priorities and goals if you have them. Or talk about the options if you don’t.

You can have your burning college admissions questions answered by an expert.

Your counselor will get an idea of what your family has- or, perhaps, hasn't yet- investigated in the college admissions space.

Lastly, we'll gather all the information, conduct our research and generate your best-fit college list.

Step 3: Schedule Your Second Meeting

After your first meeting, your college counselor will get to work putting together a college comparison sheet for you to review together at your second meeting.

Once the document is ready (typically one week after your first meeting), you'll receive a link to schedule your second meeting and be on your way towards even greater clarity and a deeper understanding of the enormous potential your future holds.

Step 4: Complete Your Second Meeting

At your second meeting, you'll have a chance to review your personalized college comparison sheet that your counselor compiled for you. (It's yours to keep!)

You can ask any questions that came up for you and your family after the first meeting and develop options regarding your next right steps on your college admissions journey.

Step 5: Explore Next Steps

If you'd like to continue your journey with your college admissions counselor, you will be provided with a list of next-step options that are based on the whole menu of NxtGen Pathways offerings tailored directly to your wants and needs.

If you'd prefer to continue your college admissions work and research on your own, you'll still have a solid understanding of how things work and NxtGen Pathways will still be here for you. 

At the end of the NxtGen Boost Starter package, you will have a greater sense of organization, direction, and clarity in terms of what you need to work on to turn your collegiate aspirations into your reality!

Frequently Asked Questions About NxtGen Boost Starter Package

Who are the NxtGen Boost starter sessions for - parents, students, or both?

The entire college admissions process is undeniably a family affair, so both parents and students are welcome. Plus, parents and students naturally have different concerns and perspective regarding the process. Therefore, ideally, students and at least one parent or guardian should attend the two sessions together.

How do you generate your college comparison sheet?

After the initial meeting, we compile a list of your top college choices plus 1-3 additionally researched colleges that we also think might be a good fit for you. Then we utilize Counselmore and Quatro Money to build your spreadsheet comparing essential college data, saving you the countless hours it would take to generate this information on your own. With NxtGen Boost, students and parents both get all the confidence the data offers, along with the expert guidance our college counselors provide for all your questions, every step of the way.

Isn't it too soon to consider the cost of college? Our family is just now starting to think about college admissions.

No, it's not too soon!

We were going to do a college comparison ourselves. What's the advantage to working with you?

The simple answer is that you don't know what you don't know. Meanwhile, we have built our careers out of finding all the best ways to navigate this incredibly complex process. By working with NxtGen Pathways, you can save yourself both time and money. We will handle the intensive research and generate your college comparison sheet, freeing up that time in your already busy schedule. Additionally, it's not only about finding the raw data. It's about being aware of all the academic and scholarship opportunities hiding behind the big numbers and allowing this to be a positive experience rather than a soul-crushing one. Even if your student has access to this (or other) software through their school, the software is still just a tool. And like any tool, it is best wielded with expert hands. Your experienced counselor will help you interpret the data and creatively problem-solve so that you aren't stuck with having debt as your only way forward. Allow our extensive knowledge be your secret weapon.

What's the cost of the NxtGen Boost Starter Package?

For your investment of $675, you receive: 2 private sessions with your dedicated college counselor, an invaluable worksheet of comparison data to find your best-fit colleges, 3 months of access to the same robust college admissions and financial aid software private college advisors like us leverage every day, and priceless peace of mind in crafting a pathway to getting into and paying for college. Consider this: the majority of our clients are average students from middle class families who have big dreams but aren't necessarily aiming for the Ivy League. They end up getting roughly 7 out of 10 acceptances and are offered grants/scholarships. So, the typical student who works with us pays a few hundred and gets at least few thousand as a return on that investment. Perhaps a better question is: what's the cost of NOT doing the NxtGen Boost with our company?
