What is the difference between Packages and the hourly payment option?

When you opt for a package, I oversee the entire application process for your student. I initiate communications and follow up with students to make sure that everything stays on track.  For hourly clients, by contrast, the responsibility for communication and scheduling rests with the student and family; you reach out to me when help is needed.  The hourly option is good for students who are: (1) good at time management, (2) self-motivated with regard to the application process, and/or (3) not the first child in their family to apply to college.
