Why do I need a 

College Advisor?


Standardized test preparation. Test preparation and college counseling are documented areas of weakness that are prevalent in both public and private schools. Many students are not receiving the support they need through their institutions, due to the high student-to-counselor ratio in these schools. For example, most public school counselors are assigned about 3-500 students to individually counsel. That is far too many for a counselor to give any one student much individualized attention.  Few teachers have taken AP, ACT or SAT exams recently; rarely do they understand how to present content in the classroom in ways that match how students will be rigorously tested on those exams. Home-schooled students also need counseling advice. At MyCollegeAdvisor.Net, we have staff qualified and experienced in helping families from these varied situations.

College admission support.  Without professional independent counseling, most students begin the college testing and application process too late or without any real strategy as to how to get into their desired schools.  Repetitive SAT testing is not in and of itself a college admissions strategy, but is the default, inadequate advice given to or taken by most families.  Families should seek a qualified independent counselor by the completion of the 8th grade for admission planning.  Admissions officers will be evaluating a student starting with the 9th grade,  whether a student is aware of it or not. 


Financial aid planning.  As early as possible, families should sit down with a person skilled in financial aid to think about all need and/or merit based options available for their child.  Resources should be planned for investment in study abroad programs, enrichment programs, and premier educational institutions offering summer college preparation, key factors in assisting a student's academic and cultural development.   After admission, if resources fall short, a skilled financial aid counselor can help with the search for external support. We offer these services at MyCollegeAdvisor.Net, at any stage of your application and admission process. 


Gain peace of mind.   Just as a family has a medical doctor for the child's physical care, a family should have an independent college counselor for important educational decisions.  College does not just help children gain employment; admission to a high quality education can significantly change many more aspects of their lives.

Mrs. Grazette was my son's big break/ticket to getting into college. The college process is so complicated and confusing when you don't have guidance. Even though we met her in his senior year with average grades and a low SAT she was able to help him get accepted into a top notch school with a scholarship. We really wished we had met her freshman or sophomore year but still very happy we met her at all. Mrs. Grazette thanks so much for making a difference in my son's life. He is all moved and settled in nicely and he absolutely loves his university. The ball is in his court now to do well. Please keep doing what you do.

Mrs. Jackie is a big reason why I got through high school and am currently attending one of the best public schools in the country. I grew so much personally and academically because of her expertise and advice. Not only did I work with her to apply to 14 colleges, but we also worked on AP test prep, ACT test prep, interview practice, resume building, scholarship finding and so much more. Jackie is an amazing educator, advisor and friend and I would recommender her to any and everyone.
