FAQ

Here are some common questions about Entrance Advisor

WHY DO I NEED A COLLEGE CONSULTANT?

The college admissions process has become extraordinarily competitive.  Most high schools, unfortunately, are not able to provide the individualized college preparation attention that each student deserves. Entrance Advisor stands in your corner long before you begin researching prospective colleges. We provide detailed, strategic, and holistic advice each step of the way, guiding you on everything from what courses you should take, to what extracurricular activities you should pursue, to finding the right colleges for you, to writing an amazing personal statement. We increase confidence, reduce anxiety, and ultimately help you gain admission into the college that is right for you.

HOW IS ENTRANCE ADVISOR DIFFERENT THAN OTHER CONSULTANTS?

Entrance Advisor delivers highly personalized advice. Everything we do is built around our students, and so we put in extensive time to get to know them. By understanding their backgrounds, passions, goals, and anxieties, we help students craft applications that are both powerful and authentic.

HOW DO YOU ADDRESS THE CONCERNS OF PARENTS?

We understand that parents are a big part of the journey to college.  They have invested a tremendous amount of time and energy into making you the talented person you are, and are understandably concerned about the application process. We talk with parents directly to help them understand how best to assist their teenager with process (and pressures) of applying to college. Parents who are calm, thoughtful, and supportive are a tremendous asset to son or daughter during this period.

DO YOU WORK WITH INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS?

Yes. Entrance Advisor has extensive international experience and we love helping international students navigate the American college application system, and maximize their chances of attending their dream school. We also love to help American students interested in international study identify colleges that will provide them with fulfilling study-abroad opportunities.
