HEC Paris

HEC Paris

I approached The Red Pen for my MBA applications after my friend ‘highly’ recommended them. Initially, my dream to pursue an MBA seemed far fetched as I wasn’t quite confident on how to stand out with my profile. The Red Pen team came to the rescue for every part of my application. I am thankful for their tremendous support throughout the entire process, their professionalism and unparalleled work ethics. From understanding my goals to getting to know me as a person, I felt they invested a lot in my personal growth while drafting my applications. The genuine concern for my motive to do an MBA, the perfectionist approach towards every single draft and the honest feedback helped me present my story brilliantly. The team was amazing to work with from the start to the end. The ‘to the point’ edits and straight forward approach to LORs helped me build a powerful and true narrative for my applications. The time the entire team spent with me is worth every penny. HEC Paris was part of my ‘dream schools list’. I couldn’t have been happier and more satisfied with the entire process. The Red Pen has acted more like a mentor throughout my entire MBA journey. Thank you for all your efforts!

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?
