Harvard Business School

Harvard Business School

Kim & Kavita were incredible pillars of support through the MBA application process. Specifically, Kavita’s assistance on making our CVs succinct, outcome-oriented and lean, was invaluable. Additionally, Kim spent a lot of time ensuring that all our application essays were clear and concise and articulating the strength of our experiences. It was extremely helpful to get her feedback on the style of writing, as she has many years of experience reviewing applications, and can share trends and best practices. Lastly, both Kim & Kavita were always available and quick to respond, despite being in the thick of the application period – this made the whole process so much easier. We’re both headed to Harvard Business School in the fall, and grateful to TRP for their guidance.

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?
