Kim and Kavita gave me continuous support starting from school selection to applications to the interviews and to the waitlist process. They were very professional but always maintained a personal touch. Their mock interview preparation is amazing and helped me build confidence in preparation for interviews. And, since Kim and Kavita are Americans who have experienced the US education process first-hand, they were able to help me shape my applications and thought process in an American way – something which is unique among educational consulting firms in India. The level of commitment and effort that TRP provided was exceptional. I am happy to say that I started the fulltime MBA program at the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management in August 2014.

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?
