Looking for help choosing a Canadian university, independent school, or public program? You’re in the right place.
As an Independent Education Consultant, or IEC, Michelle works with families to help them create a list of programs and options, then serves as a guide on the side of the application process. Think of your IEC as your private guidance and university counsellor, making sure your student has everything necessary for a competitive application.
Note: Due to the COVID-19 Outbreak, all sessions are virtual until further notice.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is does the typical university consulting process look like?
Most families begin in grade 11 with a course selection consultation to ensure students will have the necessary prerequisites for potential programs of interest and answer any questions families may have about the application process, and prepare them to begin researching for the fall admission season.
In the fall, we typically reconnect to develop a short-list of programs and schools. Families then do their university visits, and determine where their student will apply for admission.
Next, we prepare the admission applications together. Students write any supplemental applications, and they are submitted to universities.
Finally, if necessary, we come back together one more time to discuss admission offers and make a selection.
What about fees?
Rates are $150 per hour, and are payable by e-transfer or credit card. A typical initial consult lasts about 1.5 hours, and for subsequent appointments, time is billed in 15-minute intervals.
