In today’s world, families are under-resourced when it comes to college admissions. Due to budget cuts over time, high school guidance counselors have been asked to do far more with fewer resources. Nowadays, the average guidance-counselor-to-student ratio is 1:472.
Parents wanting to help their children are frustrated because the college admissions process is becoming increasingly complex (and not to mention expensive). At the same time, they don’t want to impact their relationship with their children by being too overbearing.
Students want to end up at a school that makes sense for them, one that they will feel challenged by and enjoy. They want to maximize their success while minimizing their stress in the admissions process.
How are families supposed to navigate the path to the best schools for them?
One of our key insights early on was that talented college students and recent graduates are
excellent consultants for high school students. Having just gone through the process
firsthand, our consultants remain close in age to their students, allowing them to connect on a personal
level while understanding the most recent admissions trends. Families feel at ease working with a vetted CollegeVine consultant who has been rigorously trained in the CollegeVine curriculum.
