Working With Your High School Counselor:
Do I need help from a educational consultant?

Many students find that working with their High School counselor is not as easy as they thought it would be, they find that the counselor has a very tight schedule and that there is not much time for them to really discuss every detail of how to go about finding and applying to colleges that meet their need. Many students think that they are not being helped but you have to realize that your school counselor may have 250 or more students who they may also need to help and they need to be fair to all students. Don’t blame them for this but use as much of their help as you can get. You must also realize that if you need something done by a counselor you must give them plenty of time to do what you ask.

Students soon realize that they will have to do everything by themselves unless they can find someone that can help them through the complex search for the right school, the stressful admissions process, essays, letters of recommendation and so much more. That is why many turn to educational consultants who have the knowledge and experience with every step of college selection to filling for student visas.

However if you do decide to hire a educational consultant I would also recommend that you continue to use your counselor in every way you can. You may find that they will help you with letters of recommendation and much more. Remember your counselor is there to help you as much as they can.

Your counselor may make recommendations that may help you. They can help you with what you need from your high school that will have to be sent to the colleges that you are applying to.

There are many stressful days ahead of you when you are applying to colleges, we would like to help you cope with this stress and offer you some suggestions that will help you on your way to college. Listed below are a few of the things you should do.

• You Must Take On The Responsibility:
Every student should realize they are ultimately responsible for their future and their college selection. When using a educational consultant you are still responsible for which school you will finally attend. A educational consultant will help you through all the steps of the admissions process and help you to fulfill all the requirements needed to be accepted to a school. Any good educational can help you with college selection, essays, resumes, and more.

• Organize Yourself:
You should take the time to plan and organize everything related to your college search and information you collect, you should keep your applications and all requirements within the folder and check off every step you have completed on your application. You must keep all important dates on the front of the folder so that you have easy access to that information.

• The Early Bird Gets The Worm:
I know you have heard this expression and in some cases it is very true. Colleges have a deadline that must be met but to tell you the truth it is much better for you to get in your application, essay, and all other requirements at least 2 to 4 weeks before the deadline. Colleges have only so many openings within their college and being first in line always gives you a little advantage. If you wait to the last minute you may find that your application is now among thousands of other applications from other students and it has to be processed and a file made for you, and this takes time for the admissions staff to do and if they find some missing information you may find that you are rejected or asked to send it in. So plan on being the early bird and get your application in as soon as you can.

• Finds Ways To Relax:
You will find the search for colleges that meet your needs and desires and the applications processes can be very stressful. You will have to find ways to alleviate the stress that you have found you are under when doing all that is now required of you. Make sure that you go out and have some fun with your friends and do things that you like doing, this will help you to relax while processing your applications. You should also take breaks when you feel that you are a little to stressed

You should understand that the application process can be done in steps and not everything can be done in a few days. So plan each step and complete it fully. Make sure you are organized and have set your goals and time frames for completion of each step.
