Welcome to College Placement Services

College Consulting and College Counseling

Laurie Bookstein and College Placement Services (CPS) are dedicated to leading students and their families through the college search and admission process. Getting to know her students as people first is the cornerstone of Laurie Bookstein's approach as a Certified Educational Planner. By first taking an in-depth assessment of each student's academic goals and personal preferences, Laurie guides her students through high school course selection, extracurricular activities, the college search, campus visits, interviews, and of course, the rigorous application process.

Laurie strongly believes that the college experience encompasses more than academics, and it is critical that students realize that they need to select a school that is not only academically challenging, but also a school where they will be productive, happy, and socially comfortable. The end result is that students are matched with schools that are truly the best fit, and it is this metric by which Laurie and her clients measure success.
