college admissions advisor/counselor

<p>I need help in finding a college admissions advisor/counselor for D- preferably one who is located in the northwest. Is there a professional organization which vets its members? Thanks</p>

<p>I sent you a PM</p>

<p>The Independent Education Consultant's Association has very stringent requirements for it's members.</p>

<p><a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>Keep in mind, you may not need the consultant to live in your area. He or she probably travels quite a bit to visit high schools and colleges--and your child probably only needs two or three face meetings. The rest can happen by email and editing software.</p>

<p>entomom, thanks loads for the PM
Cheers, I appreciate the link and yes, I guess there really is not a need for face to face meetings.</p>

<p>I have recently contacted a counselor for my S. I am very pleased with the quality of the intial contacts. Have to say, the feeling of relief I have to not have all the answers, or to understand the process, is well worth the investment already :).</p>

<p>Tutu, the services offered by College Confidential are very good. I found them responsive, intuitive and willing to help with the Big Issues and the most mundane. They communicate by e-mail and telephone so geographic location is not so important (unless you really want a face to face meeting).</p>
