I had a fantastic experience with The Red Pen PG team. I found everyone extremely professional and detailed-oriented. In particular, the application process was seamlessly handled; I had a clear picture from start to finish. As I had 10 years of work experience, I wanted a consultant who could not only find the right program but could also assist me in conveying my professional story in a clear, concise manner. As the strongest aspect of my application was my experience, the team helped me articulate my essay and resume and select the correct recommenders so that consistency was maintained throughout all my documents. It is because of the strong connection to the program, I managed to get an admit at and get a scholarship. I highly recommend The Red Pen services to all students across categories who want to study abroad.

The fundamental role of independent educational consultants is to help students explore college opportunities and find the right place for them to succeed academically and socially. IECs don’t get students admitted—they help students demonstrate why they deserve to be admitted at appropriately chosen schools. They help students find colleges they might not have heard of—often out of their region—and they help students put their best foot forward.

Here are 5 things families should consider when looking to hire an IEC:

  1. Does the IEC belong to a professional association such as IECA with established and rigorous standards for membership?
  2. Do not trust any offers of guaranteed admission to a school or a certain minimum dollar value in scholarships.
  3. Ensure that the IEC adheres to the ethical guidelines for private counseling established by IECA.
  4. Find an IEC that visits college, school, and program campuses and meets with admissions representatives regularly in order to keep up with new trends, academic changes and evolving campus cultures.
  5. Do they attend professional conferences or training workshops on a regular basis to keep up with regional and national trends and changes in the law?
