John Hopkins Carey Business School

I was accepted to one of my top choice schools with full scholarship and cannot thank The Red Pen enough! With a GMAT score on the lower side, I approached TRP to strengthen the rest of my application. I was very impressed by my discussion with team members about my profile, and understood what I needed to focus on primarily. The process is quite rigorous and they gave me the confidence very early on that I would be working with a group of experienced professionals. Two of the most impressive qualities about TRP are their timelines and their crystal clear instructions. They delved deep into my background before we started working on my essays, which helped me understand what to highlight. TRP was also excellent in short-listing my school choices and gave great feedback on where I would have a strong chance of getting in. I strongly recommend TRP as MBA admission consultants for their knowledge, experience, and utmost professionalism.

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?
