Our consultants are extremely talented current college students or recent graduates from universities.
Since they just went through the process themselves, the latest trends in admissions are fresh on their minds.
Our consultants also live on the campuses, so they understand intuitively the type of applicant each school is looking for.
But excelling in the admissions process isn’t the only qualification our consultants have.
After all, there’s plenty of smart college kids who would make terrible consultants (no offense to them!).
So what are we to do?
Well, first our hiring standards are extremely selective.
We screen consultants based on resume, looking for indications of strong passion and excellent interpersonal skills.
They complete several interviews and mock sessions.
Then, we require them to complete an intensive writing examination that over 80% of job applicants don’t pass.
Some don’t even finish it.
In total, only ~20% of consultants make it through the hiring funnel.
Next, we have a rigorous training process.
Before consultants interact with even a single client, they must complete several certifications in admissions knowledge, college essays, emotional management, and more.
The result is a team of highly professional college admissions experts with firsthand experience.
Best of all, our mentors are close in age to high school students, allowing them to connect on a personal level that is absolutely critical in a process that is all about developing your unique profile.
The local neighborhood consultant simply can’t compare.
