Reasons To Hire An Independent College Consultant

When clients come to us, ready to start their college application journey, they’re typically grappling with a similar question – I’m ready, but where do I begin?

One thing is for sure – the college admissions process is not what it used to be. From highly complicated application processes to steep competition, hiring an Independent Educational Consultant (IEC) not only helps your student find a college that fits their needs and goals, we help you answer that very first question to get you headed down the path toward success.

Windborne College Consulting helps families navigate the complicated process of college admission from start-to-finish. Here are the most important reasons why you should choose to work with an Independent Educational Consultant, or IEC:

  1. Navigating the college admissions process is challenging and admissions are extremely competitive. The college admissions process is not what it used to be! Many parents remember fondly the days of applying to their state colleges with their friends and not worrying very much about the selectivity or the admissions process itself. Unfortunately, those days have gone the way of boy bands. Hiring an IEC allows families to continue focusing on things other than college admissions during a time when it probably already feels like you aren’t seeing your teen enough!
  2. Investment – college is expensive and important. College graduates earn more over their lifetime than those without a degree, but how do you know you are making the best investment? There are over 2,000 accredited colleges and universities in the United States. Most teens don’t even know where to begin with finding a school that will be a good fit for the next four years.
  3. Students who find the right college are more likely to complete their degree on time. High school counselors are busier than ever. Many of them have a case load of more than 400 students, which doesn’t allow them to spend the kind of personalized time with each student that they would like to. An IEC is focused on providing personalized service to each student and can help your teen manage deadlines and expectations throughout.
  4. An IEC will have a wide variety of areas of expertise and a few key specialties as well. IEC’s visit colleges throughout the year and have the training and skills to guide your student. Areas of expertise might include working with college bound athletes or students with learning differences. As the admissions landscape changes, including topics like SAT/ACT testing, selective admissions and financial changes, an IEC is constantly learning and adding the most recent information to their knowledge base. After all – it’s their job!
  5. The investment of time – parents and teens are BUSY! An IEC can save you both hours of online research time and help you narrow down which colleges to visit, how to write great essays and how to maximize your time during the application process.
