Welcome to College Maven, LLC!
Anyone who has been through the college application process—student, parent, teacher or counselor—knows that the whole thing can be stressful at best and grueling at worst. Sherri Maxman, a.k.a. The College Maven, is here to smooth out the rough patches and take the stress out of the process by providing support and advice at every step.
Why hire an independent educational consultant?
We all know that high school college counselors, though skilled and well-intentioned, are stretched paper-thin these days. Often a school-based college advisor will be handling hundreds of students in one application season, and that’s too much for any one person to give each student enough individualized attention, particularly if a student has any special needs or interests. And with a college education being one of the biggest financial investments most of us will make, it’s a good idea to have the support and guidance of an expert in the field.
There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all approach to this process. As all parents and educators know, every child is unique in his or her strengths, challenges, interests, and aspirations. That’s why students can benefit from individualized, one-on-one attention from an expert in the field of college admissions.
Rather than just applying to certain schools that are “ranked” popular or prestigious, the College Maven works very carefully with each student to ensure that the process will result in finding a college where that student can thrive and succeed.
