Why should I hire a college consultant? Can’t my child get college counseling at his/her school?
- U.S. public high school students receive an average of just 38 minutes of college counseling per year, according to the U.S. Department of Education.
- School counselors usually have other responsibilities in addition to college counseling. According to the National Association for College Admission Counseling, public high school counselors spend only about 25% of their time on college counseling.
- The American School Counselor Association recommends a ratio of no more than 250 students per counselor. The national average in public schools is 424 to 1.
- College consultants have much smaller caseloads than school counselors, and because they focus exclusively on college counseling, they can provide significantly more support and assistance.
