Family Connection

Family Connection is a powerful tool for both our ISM counseling office and for students and parents. On our end, it is the means by which we manage all the applications that students send out to colleges and universities around the world. It also allows us to easily track student progress on the applications and produce a wide variety of reports.

For students and parents, it is an EXTREMELY useful tool for helping to select a proper range of universities. ‘Scattergrams’, the most used feature, allows students and parents to see their chances of being admitted to a particular institutions based on past data from past ISM students who have applied! Once students have entered PSAT or SAT scores and school GPAs, the system will plot them on a graph along with the historical data from past students. Other features allow you to view summaries about each institution,  do college searches based on various criteria that are important to you, compare colleges, check ‘overlaps’ – i.e. where else students who have applied to College X in the past have also tended to apply, and much much more! Check it out and make sure to use it often!
