College Admissions
Dr. Sandra Eller, a college admissions consultant and psychologist working with gifted and talented
students writes

“In the ever-changing college admissions landscape, students of many abilities can benefit from a close working relationship with an ally who can help them create the most compelling application for admission possible. Although many high school counselors are a great source of information and support, they often are limited in the time they are able to devote to each student.

The transition to college is often a time of turbulence in families. As teens strive to become independent of parents, they sometimes do so at the expense of ignoring parental wisdom. A competent educational consultant can ease family strain, allowing parents to “just be parents”, safe in the knowledge that a competent professional is carefully guiding their child through all steps of the college process:

* Identifying appropriate schools
* Maximizing the impact of college visits
* Creating a winning application (including essays and activities resumes)
* Perfecting interviewing skills
* Coaching for scholarship competitions
* Comparing and contrasting admissions offers and financial aid awards
* Making a “bound for success” college choice”
