Why Hire an Independent Educational Consultant?
Let's face it - you're here because you're probably feeling a little overwhelmed. You've worked so hard to get to this point - now what?
Whether you're a college-bound student or an excited parent - you've either never done this before or haven't done so in decades! We know...we've been there...we can help.
The college search and application process can be confusing and overwhelming. With student to counselor ratios at many high schools over 500:1, an increase in the percentage of students applying to college, an increase in the average number of applications each student submits and college becoming more expensive than ever before, students and families want to make sure that they make the right college choice.
Having a knowledgeable, qualified and experienced counselor to help usher you through the process is crucial in helping to find the right college "fit", so that the student is not only successful but also happy.
We only work with a small number of students each year, enabling us to give individualized attention to each student through one-on-one counseling sessions. Not only does this help us to truly get to know each student, but also it allows us to craft an action plan that will showcase the student's strengths in the application as well as match students with the right "fit" institution.
We spend hours with the student and family getting to know the student’s personality, interests, qualifications, and aspirations. We are then able to offer recommendations on colleges that would be best suited to the student’s educational, social, emotional, professional and personal goals.

With our expert guidance, our students have gained admission to a variety of colleges and universities across the country and world--from the Ivy League to liberal arts colleges to flagship state universities.
