International College Counselors, one of the largest college and graduate school admissions consulting companies in the country, announces the opening of their new Palm Beach office. The Palm Beach location will be the company’s fourth office in Palm Beach County and the ninth office in the U.S. The expansion is part of the company’s growth strategy of developing additional relationships within the town of Palm Beach.
Brenda Rudman, a Director of College Advising at International College Counselors, will head the office located at 250 Royal Palm Way. Rudman is a lifelong educator who grew up in South Palm Beach and was the first full-time college advisor hired by International College Counselors in 2012. Since then she has guided over 150 students in finding, applying to, and getting accepted into some of the most selective schools in the country.
“The decision to expand our presence in Palm Beach County was a logical step in our business growth strategy,” said Barry Liebowitz, managing partner of International College Counselors. “The college admissions process has become more and more stressful and confusing for both parents and students. Our presence here will enable us to help even more families.” Some Palm Beach families turn to New York-based consultants when looking to hire a private college advisor. “With the opening of our newest office these families now have an option in their backyard,” Rudman commented.
Rudman graduated with both her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from Brown University and was a former alumni interviewer for Brown’s Office of Undergraduate Admission. A former tenured faculty member of Phillips Exeter Academy where she served as an Advisor and Head Coach of the Boy’s Varsity Tennis Team, Rudman also consulted for organizations including FAU’s College of Education and the School District of Palm Beach County.
Rudman looks forward to guiding students who reside in Palm Beach to collegiate success and sharing her expert strategies for gaining admissions into top tier colleges along the way.
