Can an Admission Consultant Save a Family Stress?

There is no doubt that getting into college, particularly the right one, can set you up for long term success. Students who enter the right college often put themselves on the path to a fruitful career, start developing a friend circle that will stay with them forever and make connections that will get them places.

Thousands of students apply to college every year in what is essentially a right of passage. From the dreaded personal statement to opening an acceptance letter, the college process is fraught with perils, trials and tribulations.  The euphoria of opening an acceptance letter is one that is not replicated much in life.

Given the large number of students who apply to college, and the ever increasing competitive nature of a few highly selective schools, the admissions process can be daunting. Families often get stressed and even torn apart during these times. Students often get pressured into applying to the wrong schools by their parents who may or may not be familiar with the application process in the United States. This in turn leads to even more stress and tension!

When it comes time to write the application, especially the common app personal statement, parents often take one of two approaches. Some are hands off, letting the student write by themselves with little oversight. Others are hyper vigilant, dictating every word and not letting the students personality or voice shine through.

A college admissions expert can make a tremendous difference in not only a students application, but also in their family’s lives. By having a structured approach and go to person, students and their families often feel relieved knowing that someone is overseeing the process (and sometimes, acting a mediator through it).
