College Insights

EducatedQuest is the rare college admissions site that addresses perceptions of “sacred cows” in the college search through unique college insights. My college insights explain the fiction and truth on these topics to help students and parents consider and compare colleges best fit to their interests and needs. EducatedQuest 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.

As you read these college insights and continue on the journey to college, keep two things in mind:

  • It’s a college admissions officers job to “sell” parents and students on campus and community; and,
  • It is also their job to “sell” services performed by people

Some colleges build community and perform services better than others. My college insights can get you started. My college counseling services  give you further insights, personalized to your student’s and your family’s interests and needs. Have a comment on any of these College Insights? Please complete the comment box after you read it.
