Want a straightforward, simple, organized way to jump-start your College Search?

You've come to the right place.

This is for you if...

you or your child don't know where to start building their college list

We're more than the standard college list "search engine."

We make it personal.

Our experts in college admissions use their extensive knowledge of colleges and adolescents to build your child's personalized college list.

We work one on one with each student to create a list of colleges that match their personality, learning style, and goals for the future.


This is for you if...

your child's answer is always I don't know

Our Personalized College List Builder

We believe that there are many "right-fit" colleges for every student.

When developing your child's college list, we review extensive information captured in their U-Profile questionnaire, your parent "brag sheet," and details gathered from our initial consultation to build a list that reflects THEM.  

Let us build your list!

"The College Bound Advising College List Builder is awesome, the list of schools we received was spot on."

- Mary (Westborough, MA)

"We were so worried about where to begin, but the College Bound Advising team made the process seamless and put our worries to rest."

- Frank (Teaneck, NJ)

20 years and counting

Led by Founder and Executive Director Eydie Balsam, College Bound Advising counselors have been helping students find their "right fit' college for over 20 years. Our professional experiences range from working in higher education and high school college counseling offices to professional positions as writers and marketing specialists, as well as serving as classroom teachers, tutors, and coaches.

This is for you if...

your child doesn't know where they want to go, or what they want to study when they get there

What's Included


We start with a 30- minute consultation to help build your list with up to 10 schools. Your child's list will include notes based on your child's unique U-Profile.


Two 45-minute consultations to discuss and revise your child's initial college list. We also offer guidance on the application process for each of these schools.


Parents receive access to our VIP Parent Facebook group and invitations to members-only events to help support you as your child goes through the college application and admissions process.

Finding College Bound Advising was a lifesaver.

"Our son had no idea of where to begin, Eydie and her team helped him get started. He is now happily attending one of the schools CBA originally suggested. "

- Karen (Needham, MA)
