Congratulations, you and your child have come a long way. High school graduation is not that far down the road and now your thoughts roam to college.
What you do now will pave the way for your student's college experience. With the cost of a college education spiraling upward, with the fierce admissions competition you are probably wondering about your options. Should you:
- Leave it up to your student to make the decision? -Not an easy choice since many students take the easy way out - they do what their friends are doing.
- Rely on the high school guidance counselor? -According to the NACAC State of College Admissions 2007 report, the student ratio of public high school guidance counselors (including part-time) is 450 to 1. This statistic alone profoundly impacts the ability of guidance counselors to focus on students' college aspirations.
- Or, hire a professional educational consultant who will conduct a complete search
of what best suits your child academically, socially and financially.
With the costs of college tuition on the rise every year, having a qualified professional guide you through the process can save you immeasurable time, effort and money. A college education is the second largest investment you will ever make-with your home being the largest. Interestingly, few people would purchase a home without having it inspected first. It makes good sense to do the same kind of groundwork before investing in a college that you know little or nothing about.
From a competition perspective, colleges and universities are flooded with applications- each vying for attention. You need to have the assurance that your child's application highlights their academic abilities and extra curricular activities. In short the application should reflect everything that will make them stand out among many. We make that happen.
