Writing essays for a US business school application is a very stressful activity and it always helps to get advice and counsel from an experienced individual. I had approached Kim for help with my Wharton essays and she came back with detailed commentary on not only the macro story-line and flow of the essay but also minute word and grammar edits which made my essays more presentable and reader friendly for a US audience. Also given Kim’s prior experience as a teacher in the US, one is rest assured that they are in capable and competent hands.

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?
