College Admission Help

College Admission Help

In today’s high school environment, school-based counselors are more accountable for providing remediation, mental health, and special needs services, and as a consequence, are less able to devote significant time to college planning. As a result, many families are seeking college admissions help from a private source. In response, a number of private college counselors, consultants, and guides have stepped in to offer assistance on a number of college application-related tasks. These tasks encompass college list development, college application completion, college essay writing, financial aid guidance, and many other activities for which students and their parents require college admission help.

An estimated 26 percent of all families purchase college admission help from thousands of private counselors across the United States and throughout the world. Yet the college counseling and college admissions consulting industries remain largely unregulated—individuals can sell college admission assistance without proper training and without earning a credential in counseling, college admission or other related field. Therefore, it becomes essential that families thoroughly vet all prospective counselors before purchasing college admission help. In particular, families should inquire about the counselor’s education background—in what subject areas did they earn their degrees/credentials, and how much time was devoted to training/preparation in college admissions counseling? Families should also inquire about a counselor’s experience—how long have they been providing college admission help and advice, how many clients have they worked with, and what types of students do they serve? Finally, families should inquire about any marks of distinction—have they received outstanding reviews, have they published writing in the areas of college admission and counseling, and are there former clients who can speak on their behalf?

The counselors at College Transitions have been providing college admission help and guidance for more than a decade and have served over three thousand students.

“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.”

However, College Transitions immediately settled my fears and supported me through every aspect of that process…-I just got back from Bulldog Days at Yale, and I still cannot believe that I was accepted. Thanks to your help, I got to see my dream come true."
