Let's get started
Families today are worried and confused about how, when, and most of all where, to apply to college. At AMF College Consulting we take anxiety out of the picture by guiding students and their families every step of the way. Our primary goal is finding schools that are the “right fit” for the student academically, socially, and financially.
Why hire a consultant?
It’s true, students have been filling out college applications for decades without anyone’s help. What has changed however, is the amount of information that’s out there. It seems that new books and websites are cropping up each day, and it is virtually impossible for the average student or parent to keep up with the flood of information. A College Consultant has extensive experience in the field of admissions. They take the time to stay current with the latest updates and publications, and can help you pull out the information that will be helpful for YOUR particular situation.
How does it work?
Ideally, the relationship with an independent college consultant begins late in the sophomore year or early in the junior year of high school; sometimes sooner if course planning is an issue.
A student will typically meet with their consultant regularly over the next 24 months, with additional phone and email contact between meetings.
Of course, there are times when a student may not start the process until well into their junior or even senior year. In those cases, your consultant might be even more essential!
