Why Hire an Independent 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.

Every family is capable of choosing a school and filling out applications on their own but at what cost. It’s similar to filing taxes. The government has provided forms so we can all do the process on our own but it’s much more likely that it’s more cost effective to hire an expert.

The college search process is starting much earlier and high school counselors are simply overextended and have too many students they’re responsible for to provide extensive personal attention. Hiring an advocate that has far fewer clients allows for a more customized and often effective college search.
