The Spring phase of our Red Program primarily involves a process of researching important information and collecting documents. This period runs for three months, from March to May. Following is the list of documents you will need to provide during this phase, as well as their importance for the application process:

Transcript: A high school transcript serves as a comprehensive record of a client's academic performance throughout their high school career. It typically includes a list of courses taken each year, along with corresponding grades and credits earned. This document provides college admissions officers with crucial insight into a client's academic abilities, consistency, and level of rigor in coursework. Transcripts may include standardized test scores, class rank, GPA (Grade Point Average), and any honors or awards received. Admissions committees use the transcript to assess a client's academic readiness and potential for success in college.

Resume: In the context of college applications, a resume is a concise document that outlines a client's achievements, experiences, and skills relevant to their academic and personal development. It serves as a snapshot of the applicant's accomplishments beyond academic performance, including extracurricular activities, volunteer work, internships, part-time jobs, and leadership roles. A well-crafted resume provides college admissions officers with a comprehensive overview of the client's interests, passions, and contributions to their community. A resume complements other application materials such as transcripts and essays by offering a detailed yet succinct summary of the applicant's qualifications and experiences.

List of Schools & Majors: Defining the colleges and majors one is interested in is a pivotal step in the college application process, reflecting a clients academic and personal aspirations. It involves careful consideration of various factors, including individual interests, career goals, academic strengths, and personal values. Clients often conduct thorough research to identify colleges that align with their preferences in terms of campus culture, academic programs, location, and extracurricular opportunities. Similarly, selecting a major involves exploring fields of study that resonate with their passions and career objectives. This process may entail self-reflection, discussions with mentors, and exploration of different academic disciplines through coursework or extracurricular activities. By defining their college preferences and desired majors, clients set a clear direction for their academic journey and demonstrate a sense of purpose and commitment in their college applications.

Letter to Roommate: Writing a letter to your future roommate can be incredibly useful for our consultants at J&B to get a more authentic sense of who you are. This practice provides an opportunity to express your deeper expectations, preferences, and potential concerns on a very personal level. This letter won’t ever be sent to your roommate; instead, it is a way for us to understand your personal concerns and priorities.

J&B Questionnaire: Our questionnaire is tailored to gather insights into your preferences and personality. Through its targeted questions, you will delve into various aspects, including academic interests, extracurricular activities, preferred learning environments, social preferences, and long-term goals. Questions range from inquiries about preferred class sizes and teaching styles to inquiries about extracurricular activities, cultural interests, and community involvement. Personality-related questions might explore aspects such as communication style, problem-solving approaches, and leadership tendencies. By compiling these responses, J&B gains a comprehensive understanding of each student's unique blend of academic, social, and personal preferences, enabling them to tailor their educational offerings and support services accordingly. Clients can use the insights gained from completing the questionnaire to identify colleges that align with their individual needs, values, and aspirations.

Essay Projects: If you are interested in developing writing projects to add to your resume, J&B can help you with your writing.
