I highly recommend that most families retain a college admissions consultant when their child is looking to get into a top private college or ivy league institution. The college admissions consultant can be of benefit in many ways including test preparation and college selection, to essay and interview coaching and providing a strong application package. The cost can range from $1,000 to $10,000 depending on the level of services offered, needs of the student and the types of colleges they are pursuing. Ideally like good financial aid planning families should start the process in the Sophomore or Junior year in high school.
In addition most students will benefit from college admissions assistance even though they may not be a top student.
It’s important to differentiate that a college admissions consultant and financial aid consultants have different areas of expertise. If you would like us to recommend a top college admission consultant for your son or daughter, please contact one of our staff.
