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.
