Admission ApplicationA college application can have hundreds of blanks and boxes to fill in and select. Combine the length with instructions that may be unclear or misunderstood and it’s only a matter of time before a mistake is made.
Wouldn’t it be nice to have someone to review the entire application before the admissions committee gets hold of it? Don’t let your application get discarded before being evaluated.

College InterviewNot many colleges require interviews as a part of the admissions process but more and more are making them available. If you have the opportunity to interview, do it. Just imagine having to pick someone to share a tent with on a weekend camping trip and you only had a piece of paper with their description. Better prepare to be surprised. How much better would you feel about your decision if you got to meet them and ask a few questions before making that decision? Now you understand how important an interview can be in admissions.
Make sure that Daniels Education Consulting, your Houston area College Consultant has supplied you with information to help prepare for your college interview. If it makes you feel better, we can also conduct a mock interview to see if you need to brush up on any communication skills.

Essay AssistanceAlmost every college application requires some kind of essay. With some colleges, it can make or break your application.

Letter of RecommendationSome colleges don’t want letters of recommendation at all and some want two or three. I have seen a scholarship application that requires five letters of recommendation!? Do you know who should write these letters, how far in advance you should request them, what materials you need to supply and how the letters are to be delivered? Letters of recommendation should complement your application, essays, test scores and transcript. Don’t lose sleep over your letters of recommendation.
Daniels Education Consulting your Houston area College Consultant has a system to help you get the right letters of recommendation that are tailor made for their unique application. Contact us for a free Zoom session or face to face meeting at your convenience.
College VisitMost college students can pick out the freshmen because they usually look lost. That tells me that they didn’t do their homework before committing to attend classes on that campus. Campus visits should help you decide how comfortable the campus feels and if it has amenities that are attractive to you. It’s difficult to visit a campus that is far away so a great deal of research should be done before burning your college visit days and spending your travel dollars.
