Baltimore College Admissions Consulting

Baltimore, MD and the surrounding suburbs are home to some of the country’s best high schools—including Marriots Ridge High, Mount Hebron High, Severna Park High, Gilman School, Bryn Mawr School, and Park School, among others—and although enrolled students are provided with excellent instruction, modern facilities, and committed faculty, they frequently have trouble securing the one-to-one, customized college admissions counseling they need to earn admission and transition into suitably competitive colleges and universities. The National Association for College Admission and Counseling recently discovered that student-to-counselor ratios in Baltimore area high schools are approaching 400-to-1, on average, and are as high as 600-to-1 at some places.   Given these findings, many Baltimore area students are fortunate to receive even 30 minutes of individualized college guidance from their respective high schools each year. This leads many Baltimore area students to seek out college admissions consultants.

College Transitions is a team of seasoned college admissions consultants and counselors who are committed to augmenting the college-related services of Baltimore area high schools and to providing Baltimore area students and their families with the college admissions-related support they need to successfully complete all college related tasks, including college search, college list development, resume building, completing college applications, writing college essays, finding college scholarships, securing financial aid, and much more.  With nearly 15 years of experience in college admissions and counseling, the Baltimore college consultants at College Transitions have served thousands of students of all abilities, interests, and backgrounds, and have helped Baltimore area students matriculate into top colleges throughout the U.S., including institutions in their own “backyard,” such as Johns Hopkins University, Georgetown University, George Washington University, University of Maryland, University of Virginia and others. Please navigate to our results and testimonials page to see where some of our college-bound students have earned admission.

In recent years, College Transitions counselors and admissions consultants have provided college guidance to families living in Ellicott City, Towson, Columbia, Clarksville, Fulton and additional Baltimore area locations. We take pride in our success with Baltimore area families and are committed to helping Baltimore area students earn college admission for a number of years to come.  The college admissions process may have grown more complex and competitive, but it doesn’t have to be more stressful.  Allow our team to guide you.

“College Transitions was responsive, establishing a great rapport with our son, and keeping the process moving in a friendly and helpful way...fine tuning the essays, error checking he applications, and available to answer panicked questions almost around the clock. Sam was accepted into his first choice, The University of Chicago, a school that had seemed out of reach at the beginning of the process.”
