Why There Is A Need For Engaging An Independent Admissions Counselor At Early Stage Of High School?
By Hubert Ho | Head of Admissions Consulting Services, Kaplan Test Prep and Admissions
In the past three years, more and more inquiries from students who were studying in first or second year of high school came in. It’s not hard to understand the happening. Since academic performance is no longer the sole determinant for the elite universities to admit an applicant. Studying the applicant’s background and growth during the 4-year high school life will be the only area the adcom can try to figure out the true potentials of an applicant. It makes creation of an outstanding student’s profile being the key to successful admissions and it is quite necessary for students and families to have a dedicated person who can help them to ASSESSS, PLAN and MONITOR the whole profiling process and make sure nothing goes wrong. Here comes the role of independent admissions counselor!
There is no doubt that many students and families which believe that admissions counseling can only help with school selection and essay coaching. It is already a very wrong concept! For the new era of admissions counseling, we don’t just help in picking the right schools and decorating student’s essays. Imagine there is nothing stunning in student’s resume, how we can make the essays attractive? Can we just rely on the writing style? Probably NOT. Independent Admissions Counselor can analyze the chance of admissions into elite schools even at Grade 9 or Grade 10. Then, we design the intervention strategy to inspire students for developing a more solid and attractive student’s profile with sparks. Almost all outstanding achievements need time to acquire. Don’t wait until the last minute!
Parents always told me that it is quite hard for them to decide which independent admissions counselor is the correct one for their child. Remember! It is not just about a one-off service, but also a life-long planning. A good counselor should be able to give SYNERGY, INSIGHTS, ASPIRATION, PASSION and STRATEGY not just to the students but also their family.
