Top 5 Reasons to Get Great College Advice

With over 3,000 colleges and universities in the US, how do I know which is the best match for me? With our first-hand knowledge of colleges and access to the admission profession, we can provide in-depth, personalized advice that no guidebook or website can. We get to know you so that we identify several colleges that will allow you to thrive throughout your college years.

Aside from a home, a college education is the biggest investment that most families will ever make. And yet most would never think of selling their home without the advice of a professional real estate agent. When you consider that the cost of a private 4-year college (tuition, room, and board) ranges from $120,000 to well over $200,000, hiring a professional to help you make a sound investment makes good sense.

Colleges and universities compete for students. And then they deny admission to apparently strong applicants. They market their educational services the way companies sell toothpaste. Then they manipulate the game in a way that favors their national rankings–and not individual students. With our expertise in the field, we shed light on what can be a very opaque and confusing process. At the same time, we maintain a sharp focus on student needs and aspirations.

On average, the percentage of students who enroll in a college who actually graduate from that same college is under 50%. This means that the many, many transfer to other schools after having made the wrong choice. By guiding you toward colleges that are the best fit for your academic interests, extracurricular pursuits, and personality, you have a much better chance of matriculating and graduating from a school that suits all your needs from start to finish.

The college admissions process can be stressful for everyone involved. Much seems to ride on the decision. And the tasks seem endless: choosing appropriate courses, registering and studying for standardized tests, researching colleges, completing applications, writing essays, filling out financial aid forms…the list goes on and on. With all the tension in the air, some families yearn for a way to remove the stress and reestablish equilibrium. We won’t let the process get you down; in fact, we’ll help you enjoy the discoveries along the way.

  1. Hi,
    We have a daughter who has really strugged in our local high school. She has Dyslexia but a high IQ. Mostly it has been the drama that she struggled with…..being adopted from Korea, learning differently, etc. We put her into two different boarding schools and same drama there. We currently have her getting her GED. Can an educational consultant help us find the right college with a GED? Thank you.
