Why to use an Educational consultant?
At present, the typical caseload of public high school guidance counselors in the USA is between four and five hundred students per counselor. In addition, these counselors are expected to be experts not just in college placement - in which vital information is constantly changing - but in vocational training and in general counseling issues as well. There is a catch-all position that makes it very difficult to maintain expertise in one area, or to give substantial time, resources, or individual attention to any of their hundreds of "cases." And for families looking for help placing students in private colleges or universities, educational consultants are the only available professional resource.
Educational consultants devote their full energies to school placement and related services. This means we have the time and the undivided attention to give to the essential work of visiting colleges, schools, and special needs programs, to develop relationships with admissions staff, to keep up with key developments in secondary and higher education, and - most important - to get to know the individual student with whom we will work closely throughout the placement process. It is this combination of expertise and personal attention that is drawing increasing numbers of families to our services.
