All future tour programs have been suspended until further notice due to the Covid19 pandemic.

“I wouldn’t be at Columbia today without Bill Rubin’s TCA college tour. The tour exposed me to such a wide range of schools that helped me formulate exactly what I was looking for. The Q&As, the campus tours, the chance to talk to students, and the debriefs with Bill really completed the package. We also had ample time to explore during the evenings to see what it really might be like as a student.”

“Without exaggeration, I can say that Bill Rubin is one of the most knowledgeable college admissions and guidance professionals I have known in more than twenty years of working in education. Bill loves to get to know individual students, and he works very hard to make The College Authority tours both informative and fun. In particular, Bill has deep expertise in the study of science and engineering, which makes him a rare resource among his colleagues. Bill Rubin is one of a kind: he is a terrific resource and he makes touring colleges a lot of fun.”
