College Consulting



"Do you know of any type of coaches or consultants to help us get our kids into a college and program of their choice?"

Considering a college counselor?  There are business that are dedicated to only college consulting.   They normally work with public and private school students.  Although high school guidance counselors are supposed to fill the role, many parents don't feel they provide enough guidance, or enough individual support, so they look to a dedicated college consultant.

To find a college consultant, do an online search for  "College Consulting."  College consultants can be extremely expensive, from a few thousand dollars to tens of thousands of dollars.  They can not guarantee admission or scholarships, of course.  Nobody can!

One alternative is my Gold Care Club, because admission is one of the many areas where I can provide support.  I also have classes that will help with college admission:  Finding a College and Getting the Big Scholarships.  You can find all my products listed in the Parent Training Tools on my website.

CBS MoneyWatch has an article that may help.  Read Six Ways to Pick an Independent College Counselor.  I just recently stumbled on this article. I knew college counselors were expensive, but $30,000 or $40,000 for some? Really?  My Gold Care Club is only $97 per month.  I honestly believe most parents just need a normal amount encouragement and guidance. It's really NOT that hard to get into college.  I can certainly point you in the right direction.

I usually recommend a college counselor only when you want to go to a very prestigious school, or if your child is very resistant to parental assistance.  Certainly there are some times when a college counselor will make sense to you, but it's not necessary.  Most parents are able to guide their children when they have the necessary tools, and I'll be glad to help with that.
