A la Carte Services

Each International College Counselors service begins with a comprehensive discussion with the parent(s) and child, a review of applicable academic and test records, and completion of the Student/Family Profile. With this, the consultant will better understand your child’s and your family’s values, priorities, and preferences, as well as your child’s strengths, needs, and learning style.

International College Counselors’ services start at just $500.

Essay Review

The personal essay can help you improve your chances for admission. It may be as short as 250 words, but the words you choose can mean the difference between a “maybe” and a “yes”. An International College Counselors advisor will edit and offer commentary on your essays. This review will offer suggestions regarding subjects, tone, clarity, and structure.

School Target Analysis

We combine your child’s profile with International College Counselors comprehensive database of schools and, with the crucial addition of your consultant’s own familiarity with schools, create a School Target Analysis. This report is developed specifically for your child, based on the profile information already gathered, identifying criteria such as size, location, academics and possibility of gaining acceptance. An International College Counselors’ consultant will help answer your questions and suggest a path forward to make sure your child thrives.

School Visit & Interview Preparation

We will provide help and advice in preparing you for school visits, pointing out elements to look for and useful questions to ask; we will help interpret the information you receive and assist you in evaluating your experience during the tour. In preparation for your all-important interviews, your International College Counselors consultant will work with your student as a coach to create the best possible image of your child, consistent with who he is. We will debrief with you after the visits you have scheduled to determine what, if any, follow-up is appropriate.


At the end of the process, you may have several options from which to choose. An International College Counselors consultant will help you evaluate what you have learned during this journey, and weigh your options so that you can make the most appropriate decision.
