College Consultants provide individual support and guidance to find the “best fit” college – one that provides a challenging and appropriate academic environment, a socially stimulating campus, and costs within the family budget.There is no fee for the initial phone interview. For our first meeting you will be asked to email or bring me general information about your child (transcript, resume -if available, etc.), the campus environment you are considering, and any special circumstances of which I should be aware. There is a fee of $250 and the meeting lasts as long as necessary to answer your questions and address your concerns.
Included in the fee:
If we agree to work together, a check or money order is due at our second meeting. All email exchanges and virtual meetings and weekly in person meetings are included in the consultation fee quoted. Families usually feel satisfied with their outcomes after three or four meetings at which time I meet with the student. Parents are always welcome to attend. No guarantee is ever made regarding institutional decisions or outcomes.
There is no additional fee for returning students seeking transfer or a gap year after or those who decide to add colleges once the initial applications are sent.
If your family is Pell eligible or eligible for free or reduced lunch, please call for special rates.
