Did you Know…

Many consultants’ biggest claims are...

They graduated from elite schools (That doesn’t give them specialized knowledge, however, to give students the edge in admissions)

They worked in admissions before becoming independent educational consultants (IEC)

Most have never taught students or worked with them directly.

Why we’re different

U

Graduating from an elite college doesn’t give a consultant special knowledge of admissions; it takes professional training, expertise and experience to help students gain admittance to their top college choices. We have that, with approximately a collective half century of teaching students and helping them gain admittance to their top colleges.

Being teachers, however, we understand how important it is to continually educate ourselves. Admissions and the global climate is continually changing. We stay abreast of those changes by continually reading, speaking with admissions/college personnel, and taking coursework, as needed. We throw all our energy into being the best that we can be. We don’t just rest on our laurels as former admissions representatives or graduates of top schools.

But knowledge isn’t enough. It takes a special rapport and understanding of the teenage mindset to help students present their best selves to admissions committees. We love working with teens, and it shows … with most of our students gaining access to their top choices.

The Art of the App

After Completing the Roadmap Sessions, Our Students Have Been Accepted Into Top Universities of Their Choice.

Having worked as private college admissions counselors over the past 15 years, we’ve designed this course to include all the benefits of working with professionals like us – without the cost or inconvenience.
