38. No, you’re not going to see a list of 38 reasons why hiring a college counselor is a good idea (though there are at least that many).
38. The average number of college counseling minutes that a student in the US will receive DURING THEIR FOUR YEARS OF HIGH SCHOOL. Not each semester, or each month or each year. 38 MINUTES TOTAL.
Honestly it’s a terrifying statistic. How can we expect students and families to make informed decisions about one of the greatest investments they will ever make with 38 minutes of counseling?
We can’t. The process is too complicated and the stakes are too great to leave it to 38 minutes and good luck.
Next Level College Application was founded on the idea that all students should have access to quality professional admissions counseling at a reasonable price. Our counselors work in private schools that provide extensive counseling for each student, but it comes as part of their tuition that is often in excess of $30,000 a year.
We know that access to a college education is a catalyst for generational change. Providing affordable counseling is one way we can make a difference in the world. The service is not free, but it is affordable to put our clients and their applications in the best position for success. Make an appointment with a counselor today.
