I chose The Red Pen for my HBS and Wharton interview preparation. I did this after a lot of due diligence online and from friends – I heard that TRP is certainly the best admissions consulting firm in India and my experience with them proved that without a doubt! What stood out for me was how approachable they were throughout the process and how quickly they responded to any doubt / query from my end. Kavita especially was such an amazing mentor through this process! I found their interview help to be outstanding in terms of how close it was to the real interview experience and I was glad I took their support to prepare. The fact that my interview prep was done in person made all the difference. I wish them (and more importantly their clients!) the best of luck!

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?
