Preparing for college can be filled with difficult decisions and windy pathways.

Having someone to guide you through your college admissions process can make the journey smoother, help you avoid wrong turns, and reach a final destination you may not have been able to on your own.

But, you may be wondering: what factors should I consider when choosing a college admission consultant? That’s exactly what we will tell you in this post.

And now test prep and the college admissions process has begun…

With curfews, friends, homework, exams, camps, and games, your child’s life is undoubtedly hectic and filled with activity. This busy life likely also means that you parents are spread thin too!

As your child progress through middle school and then through high school, your life continues to grow more and more chaotic…and then it hits you: college application season has begun.

Now you and your child are in overdrive.

On top of your busy schedule, your child’s workload of college essays, SAT and ACT exams, Subject tests, and AP tests can prove an overwhelming mix. (Of course, we haven’t forgotten the whole set of extracurriculars that likely demand your time!)

We know how busy your life is and we know the stress you’re under.

The advantage of having an admissions consultant is that you will not only have someone help guide you throughout your child’s high school process, but also to have someone on your team that is an expert in the college admissions field to help take the weight off your shoulders.

3 Main Factors to Consider when Choosing a College Admissions Consultant

There are three main factors to consider when choosing an admissions consultant for your student:



How much experience do they have in this industry?


What results have they delivered with their past students?


Do they have a cookie cutter approach, or do they offer a unique and personalized approach for your student?
No two students are alike, and it is important to hire an admissions consultant who is well rounded and experienced in the field; someone who has seen the changes and trends throughout the course of their career.

A great admissions consultant will be able to take the knowledge they have gathered over the previous years to help create an approach customized for your student and help avoid any more family arguments at home.
