The college application process is daunting and fiercely competitive. However, a top college consultant can help her students greatly when it comes to achieving admissions at many leading universities. Before deciding to partner with a college consultant, you must be sure that person has the skills and credentials you need to reach your goals.
So, how can you be certain a college consultant is someone who can truly help you?
2. Expect Membership in Leading Organizations
Verifying that a college consultant has a commitment to the highest standards of ethics and good practice as well as ongoing education is extremely important. Consultants who offer professional services need to be part of a community of experts so they can constantly improve their knowledge. Ms. Lee is a member of multiple college consulting organizations recognized nationally and internationally for their professionalism in this field, like NACAC, NAFSA, OACAC, NJACAC, and NYSACAC.
3. Verify Ivy League Knowledge and Experience
Ms. Lee is not only an Ivy League graduate, but a mentor who is often invited to serve as a speaker at top admissions and corporate seminars. Her publications and courses attest to her drive to remain at the forefront of the changing world of Ivy League admissions. When not working with clients, she visits campuses of the top universities across the U.S. and worldwide and stays up-to-date with current admission trends and news.
4. Understand the Value of the College Application, Essay, and Interview.
To achieve your admissions goals, you need help from someone who can assist you in distilling your distinct value and achievements into a series of compelling essays. A great personal statement serves to demonstrate who you are and your potential values as a member of a school community. And both a standout essay and interview can elevate your chances of admission to the Ivy League and other top-tier universities. Ms. Lee has an instinct for helping students organize their ideas and express themselves effectively in writing and in the interviews - helping them stand out during the application process. As a former Ivy-League Alumna Interviewer and Co-Chair of the Interview committee, she is familiar with the Dos and Don'ts of a College Interview.
5. Use Strategic Planning to Complete the Admissions Process
Last, but certainly not least, is the ability to bring knowledge together and deploy it in practice. Ms. Lee has thousands of hours of experience as a mentor who leads students through the complex process of Ivy League and top-tier admissions from beginning to end. That includes setting goals, maximizing the impact of time spent and aligning clients with the most demanding admissions expectations. All of this translates into his students routinely getting into the Ivies and other top colleges.
In order to be competitive in the prestigious and Ivy League admissions process, a top-level strategic approach must be employed - such a tactic can lay the strongest foundation possible for a lifetime of success and service.
