ADVISING

SERVICES

After more than 10 years of working in international recruitment and admissions for some of the world's top universities, including The University of Edinburgh, University of New South Wales and The University of Western Australia, I provide peace of mind for students and families by using my professional expertise and guidance to help save you time, money, stress and confusion throughout various aspects of the application process, while keeping you organized and on track with tasks, requirements and deadlines.

And as no two international degree search processes are alike, I offer a number of counseling packages designed to meet your needs for support in applying to college and grad school abroad. Note: For students who initially start with the General Q&A option and wish to sign up for another package afterward for more personalized support, the General Q&A fee paid will be credited toward the additional package.

GENERAL Q&A

$295

This option is best for students and families in need of quick, general application guidance for college or grad school admissions overseas.

Services include:

 

  • One 45-minute virtual session

  • General application and admissions information (what overseas universities consider and what they don't consider)

I will also recommend an application/testing timeline, explain various application systems (including UCAS in the UK) and inform you of any additional steps or testing required to become a competitive applicant for your programs of interest.

Services include:

 

  • Two 45-minute virtual sessions

  • In-depth academic record review and analysis

  • Guidance on entry requirements and admissions probability for up to 5 programs of your choice
