Successful college planning begins years before the actual application period ... and so does the stress. Even with helpful high school counselors, mounds of information available online and in bookstores, and free flowing advice (solicited and unsolicited) from people who have "been there," most students and their parents still find that there is plenty to worry about.
Am I taking the right classes? When should I take the SAT and how many times? Should I take the SAT, ACT or both? How many colleges should be in my application pool? How do I best position myself for acceptance, beyond grades and scores? All of these questions and more have prompted families to seek out the services of an independent college counselor who can help provide the answers, keep students on track, mind the deadlines, evaluate applications and prepare for standardized tests. A good independent counselor is like a great coach: one who can focus on a student's unique talents and abilities to help him or her find the best match and gain acceptance.
