Houston College Admissions Consultants

Houston TX College Admissions Consultants

Houston Area high school students are some of the most competitive applicants to elite colleges in the nation, boasting high test scores, impressive extra-curricular activities, and a high level of preparedness to succeed in college. However, according to the American School Counselor Association (ASCA), the Greater Houston Area has a high student-to-counselor ratio of 412:1, falling well short of the recommended 250:1 high school student-to-counselor ratio. With an appalling 412:1 student-to-counselor ratio, students in Houston may not even receive an hour of college admissions counseling from their high school counselors each year. Because of this, many parents are turning to private Houston college admissions consultants for help with college admissions counseling.

Recently ranked the top college admissions consulting firm in the United States by Entrepreneur Magazine, Solomon Admissions Consulting boasts the deepest bench in the United States of over 50 former top-tier college admissions officers who work as Houston college admissions consultants with students in the Greater Houston Area.

College Application Consultants

 

When hiring a private Greater Houston Area college admissions consultant, it’s critical to work with a former top-tier college admissions officer as they are the only ones who have reviewed thousands of college applications, voted on who gets admitted, and know the preferences of each top school inside and out. A local solo Houston college admissions consultant simply will not know what our team of former college admissions officers know and will not be able to provide the same insider strategy, success rates, and level of guidance. Solomon Admissions Consulting employs a team-based approach and pools the knowledge of all its college admissions consultants to assist students in Houston by employing as college admissions consultants former college admissions officers from Stanford, Princeton, UC Berkeley, MIT, Columbia, Brown, UPenn, Dartmouth, Duke, Cornell, Carnegie Mellon, UChicago, and Northwestern.

Solomon Admissions Consulting begins college admissions consulting and coaching starting in the 8th grade with students in the Greater Houston Area, and works with 8th graders, 9th graders (freshmen), 10th graders (sophomores), 11th graders (juniors), and 12th graders (seniors). Our Houston college admissions consultants work with students first and foremost to develop a compelling strategic positioning plan that positions students for success in the elite college admissions process. Once the ideal positioning strategy is selected, we coach students on the right extra-curricular activities and summer plans to maximize their college admission odds. We then work with students senior year on crafting the perfect school list, strategically picking out the right ED/EA school, crafting a compelling common application main essay, crafting strong supplemental essays that show fit, recommendation letters, and preparing students for interviews. We specialize in selecting the best choice college for our students, whether they plan to pursue premed, combined BS/MD programs, computer science, engineering, business, finance, prelaw or music and art.
