Educated Quest College Insights
Educated Quest is the rare college admissions site that addresses perceptions of “sacred cows” in the college search. These college insights separate fiction from the truth. They help students and parents consider and compare colleges best fit to their interests and needs.
Educated Quest college insights are quite unique to Web sites that offer college admissions advise or college profiles. You will not find these college insights in college rankings books or the guides that you find on the shelves at your nearest bookstore. You will find them only here at Educated Quest.
My college counseling services at Educated Quest give you further insights, personalized to your student’s and your family’s interests and needs. I look forward to having you as a client and sharing my personal insights with you! Have a question or would like to know more about how to consider or compare colleges? Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 609-406-0062.

The best of the best high school baseball players have an advantage over their peers who play basketball, football and several other sports: they may have the option to play college baseball or sign a contact with a Major League team. For those who are not expected to be drafted […]

Last week, the University of Wyoming launched an admissions advertising campaign under the tag line ‘The World Needs More Cowboys’. The original ad has a strong narrative, using the spirit of the cowboy from the Old West, though the visual footage looks much like any other university ad that I […]

Last week, Princeton University announced that all prospective students must submit a graded writing sample, preferably in English or History, as part of their application for admission.

I’m always concerned when a media source tries to determine a college’s reputation by using a survey of a single target population in its college rankings.

Invitations to the wait list are among the less pleasant surprises in college admissions. The wait list is not usually a reward for extraordinary achievement or a consolation prize. It exists in case a college admissions office comes up short in filling a freshman class. The wait list might turn out to […]
