Why Use Janet Rosier’s Educational Resources?

Admissions Counseling

Choosing which colleges to apply to is confusing, attending college is expensive and the entire process is emotionally charged. Families need to know that the Educational Consultant they hire is knowledgeable and ethical. Janet Rosier is a Certified Educational Planner– the highest certification an IEC can achieve. CEPs are vetted for knowledge, experience and ethics and must pass a comprehensive examination– approximately 3% of IECs nationwide hold this designation. Janet has been guiding students to excellent college choices since 2003 and you can trust her with this important rite of passage.

College Admissions has become increasingly competitive and needlessly complex. More students are applying to a growing number of colleges and colleges are aggressively marketing themselves to students. Many of these colleges use similar language in describing their institutions and the type of student that would be a good fit.

How do students and their parents know which colleges are a good fit? How can they sort through the hype to know which colleges truly want them as a student, rather than just want them to apply?

As an experienced advisor, Janet knows how to see through the hype and marketing. She has reviewed hundreds of high school transcripts and can determine which colleges are a fit for your student—which ones are “reaches” and which ones are “targets”. She then crafts a list of colleges tailored to your student’s individual needs using her own research, never relying on search engines.

The process of applying has also become more complicated. Where there was once only one way to apply to college, now there are many: Early Decision, Early Action, Restricted Early Action, Single Choice Early Action, Priority, Regular Decision and Rolling, each with their own deadlines, requirements and rules. Another change is the impact applying early may have on a student’s chance of admittance. Some colleges and universities fill half of their incoming class using an “early” program. Families who use Janet Rosier know they are making informed decisions about how their students should apply to the colleges on their list.

Janet guides each student through all of the key areas including information on what to look for on campus visits as well as preparing them for interviews. She will help plan the remaining high school curricula and determine which standardized tests to take and when to take them. Additionally, she will guide your student through the myriad essays that many colleges require and review all of the applications.

According to a study by Lipman-Hearne, 26% of high achieving seniors used an independent educational consultant in their college search and application process.
