Stanford Graduate School of Business

Stanford Graduate School of Business

I was passionate about attending a business school in the US and wanted to put my best foot forward to gain admission. Testimonials of past clients, currently placed in top US schools, convinced me that The Red Pen offered the best resources to achieve my goal.

The Red Pen has an in-depth understanding of the Indian education system and the existing professional environment along with the expectations of the US business school. They helped me explore my experiences, which at first I didn’t necessarily think were important, prodding me to present my stories and application in the best possible manner so that I could stand out in a competitive pool. I am really thankful to The Red Pen for being my guide and companion through this entire journey. I could not have made it without their support.

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?
