Ross School of Business

Ross School of Business

A big thank you to you all. You helped me to understand myself so much better in that initial meeting we had. Frankly, I wasn’t considering Ross in the beginning. And now, it looks like the perfect fit. I’m excited to get in!

My conversation with Michael Lippert from Ross adcom was really helpful in learning about the school and building rapport. All the other help during the entire process, with reviews and information along the way, has also been key to getting over the wire.  The calls to discuss my essays, the application reviews and most of all, the confidence boosts a day before the interviews! A shout out to the rest of the behind-the-scenes team as well! I may not know them but I know they made it their goal to help me achieve mine.

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?
