Dear Students & Parents,

People that are considering the idea of attending college are usually quite excited about the opportunity. This excitement could also turn to stress when trying to consider how they will afford tuition while sorting through all potential sources of funds that may be available to them. As a scholarship consultant my role is to become the bridge between students and parents to help motivate them to their potential Through the Scholarship Consulting Services program, we provide opportunities and options so that students and parents can make an informed choice when selecting a college that meets all the needs of the student, including the academic program that is best for the student, the financial aid offered, and campus compatibility.


The SOAR program will help students complete scholarship applications, submit financial aid forms, and give parents and students resources and advice to better understand and navigate the scholarship and college admissions process. We will answer questions, address concerns, and provide information that will enable parents to feel more confident about the somewhat confusing and frustrating scholarship, college admissions, and financial aid process.

My goal is to reduce the stress families and students experience during the scholarship search and application process so that the entire process is easier on students and parents. Competitive scholarships are changing and becoming more complex and stressful. My role is to simplify the process because I have experienced this with my own children.

As college admissions become more and more competitive, many parents and students are turning to college consultants to assist them with the complex process of researching and applying to colleges. As more and more consultants assist families, the competition for admission becomes even more fierce. With over 3 million students applying to college,  and the number of independent consultants who are assisting them increasing, it is more important than ever that families understand the process.

Why should you consider hiring a college consultant? After all, this is something you can do on your own, right?

Yes, it is, but here are some facts to consider:

  • Competition for acceptance is tougher than ever – colleges are looking for much more than good grades in a​ prospective student.
  • With tuition rates at all-time highs, choosing the wrong college can be even more costly if the student has a bad experience and, consequently, transfers, loses credits, or worse yet, drops out!
  • State schools aren’t always the more affordable, easier-to-get-into option they once were.
  • We work with and support your high school guidance counselors. They must divide their schedules to accommodate hundreds of students, which leaves minimal time to identify and address your student’s unique strengths and needs.
  • There are more than 3,500 colleges nationwide – it’s a challenge to sift through even a fraction of them to find the best fit for your student!
  • We can help you find those schools which best fit the financial needs of your family. This includes valuable advice on applying for grants and financial aid.
  • We provide individual attention to you and your student – professionally, confidentially, and compassionately. At the same time, we realize your time is precious, so we maximize our effectiveness by using phone, email, Skype, and personal meetings.
  • We are student advocates.
  • We help eliminate the worry about meeting application deadlines.
  • We help you cope with the seemingly endless paperwork.
  • We help you showcase your student’s talents, abilities, and uniqueness through your college application essays.
  • We visit colleges to offer you firsthand information
