Thanks to Admissions Revolution for providing me free access to their website to review. As always, the opinions are mine.
Last month, the phone calls began. “Can you write a recommendation for my daughter for sorority recruitment?” It was clear from the calls that I had more than one friend working with a consultant that not only helped their child get into the school of their choice- they now were going to help them navigate the Greek system. Interesting.
When I went to school, you just applied and kept your fingers crossed that your grades and extra-curricular activities would get you in. Today, the college selection and application process is so complicated that parents are hiring independent college counselors and paying them $150 to $500 an hour to help them navigate the system. In fact, the average college counseling package is $4,000.
Admissions Revolution was created by Sara Harberson, a former dean of admissions and current high school director of college counseling. Her mission is to make the college accessible to students all over the world and make the admissions process transparent. Admissions Revolution is filled with videos to help your teen understand every aspect of the college admissions process from the SAT's to college visits and financial aid. It's accompanied by easy checklists and guides.
While we're three years away from applying to colleges, I absolutely loved the Admissions Revolution system. Here's why. My teen listens to about half of what I say, doesn't yours? I can tell her all day long what she needs to do in high school to prepare for college but she may not listen. The videos are easy to understand from an industry expert and they're presented in a way that teens will pay attention and understand. That's important. Take a look.
My daughter has her sight's set on being a Pediatric Oncologist. While that may change in the next few years in high school, one thing's for sure. She'll be going to college. For a monthly fee of $59, Admissions Revolution will definitely be part of our college planning and I think it should be part of yours too. You can start your FREE trial today, by clicking here.
