Kirby College Consulting (KCC) is a company that will provide a complete service from the initial exploration of colleges to the ultimate acceptance into qualified schools.

KCC’s mission statement is to match the right kid to the right school. It’s not about getting into the “best” school, it’s about finding the right fit.

Why Hire a Consultant

Choosing the next path after high school can be a difficult process. It doesn’t look anything like it did when this generation of parents went through admissions.

Independent consultants have run this complex admissions maze before and can help with that navigation.

KCC will narrow the selections down to a manageable number and ultimately help create criteria as well as aid in the application process.

What a ride!!! My parents drove me crazy with the college search but it was easy to talk to Jill about my options. I’m really happy with how it all worked out.

Indiana University – Kelley School of Business, Class of 2021

I heard about Jill through a friend that used her to edit her essays. Once I met with her, I knew she was what I needed. We went through at least 20 different versions of my essay until it was exactly what my mind wanted to say. She didn’t take over my story, just helped me figure out how to tell it better. Jill’s the best.


Michigan University, Class of 2021

Going into my senior year I had no idea where I wanted to go, what I could afford or what I wanted to study. Jill broke it down in a very simple way and I found where I belonged.

Clemson University, Class of 2021

I had lower scores than a friend of mine but we were applying to similar schools. I got into my reach schools and she didn’t – that was my proof that it worked!


Northeastern University, Class of 2021
