Westchester County College Admissions Consulting

Westchester County, New York is widely considered as a pre-eminent producer of high achieving college applicants. Students attending Horace Greeley, Scarsdale, Edgemont, Bronxville, Rye, Ardsley, Briarcliff, Irvington, Pleasantville, and other area high schools are provided with excellent instruction and have access to the social and human capital needed to develop college-ready credentials; however student-to-counselor ratios in Westchester County are exceedingly high, and reach 400-to-1 at some schools. While Westchester County school counselors are among the best-trained nationwide, multiple job roles, dwindling budgets, and increasingly high caseloads have left them without the support and time needed to provide adequate college admissions counseling and guidance.  As such, Westchester County students must often look elsewhere for guidance on college list development, college application planning, college essay writing, financial aid and scholarship guidance and a host of other college admissions-related tasks. This is why many Westchester County families seek out college admissions consulting.

College Transitions counselors strive to supplement the important work of area educators and deliver responsive and research-based college admissions support to Westchester students and their families.  With more than a decade of experience in college admissions and guidance, we have guided dozens of West Chester students to the best colleges and universities across the U.S. including many in New York, such as Cornell, Columbia, Vassar, Hamilton, Colgate, University of Rochester, Bard, and Sarah Lawrence, among others.  We take pride in our results, and are committed to helping our students maximize their college admissions prospects, as well as find good-fit colleges and universities.

Over the past several years, admissions consultants at College Transitions have provided college counseling and guidance to West Chester students residing in Ardsley, Greenville, Bronxville, Harrison, Scarsdale, Larchmont, Rye, White Plains, Mamaroneck, New Rochelle, Eastchester and other Westchester locations.  Our college counselors are ready and available to provide comprehensive college admissions support encompassing the college search, admissions, and financial aid process.

“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.”

"As an only child with parents who never attended college in America, I was completely frightened of the college admissions 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."
