Why choose an Independent College Counselor?
In choosing a counselor, the student and their family should do careful research to see if there is anyone in their area who can provide this service for them. Just as students should apply to schools that are best fits for them, they should also work with counselors who best fit their needs.
This is a highly personal relationship as well as a professional one; therefore, establishing a rapport and making sure the counselor “gets” you is a very important factor when choosing a college counselor.
It’s a good idea to work with a counselor with solid credentials and references, but it’s also important to make sure that they will make time for the student and their family and give them personal attention during this crucial time in their lives.
