Why Admissions Consulting?
The college admissions landscape can be bewildering. Families spend countless hours researching, planning and preparing for university.
Unfortunately, misinformation abounds, causing uncertainty and confusion. Families often aren’t sure they’ve gotten the right information, done everything needed, nor made the best decisions on college admissions.
Admissions into top universities is also extremely competitive. With more applicants than ever before, admissions rates have dropped precipitously the last couple of decades. Students are more challenged than ever to stand out from the crowd.
The costs of poor college preparation are high. Students may not be able to attend their preferred schools, which may affect their job prospects and long-term earnings potential. Moreover, poor planning often results in having to spend more years at university, translating into substantial extra costs.
FLEX Admissions Consulting helps you navigate the admissions landscape, providing you with clear, updated information and advice. More importantly, we work with you to build a standout college application profile, ensuring that your very best self is presented to universities.
With FLEX Admissions Consulting, you’ll save time and money, get peace of mind, and increase your chances of getting into your dream college.

Beginning the summer before the senior year, a dedicated admissions consultant will assist the student to strategically fashion a college application profile, select the right major, and cultivate a list of target colleges.
Over the course of six months, an experienced essay specialist will work alongside the student and their consultant to guide the essay-writing process, set a completion schedule and ensure the final product is polished and engaging.
The ACE program culminates in a full application review by a panel of admissions experts (members of the FLEX Info Bank) before the student officially submits their applications.
