WHY HIRE AN INDEPENDENT COLLEGE CONSULTANT?
The role of an independent counselor is not to replace the high school counselor, but instead, support the student and family through research, collaborating, coaching, and helping the student and family successfully manage their college applications. Independent college admissions advisors provide multiple hours advising and supporting in a non-biased, third-party perspective to the student's college application process.
