The world of college admissions is ever-changing, unpredictable, and not always fair. With nearly 4,000 colleges in the United States and the media frenzy surrounding college admissions, it’s no wonder many families find the college search and application process overwhelming.
Believe it or not, exploring and applying to colleges can be a productive and enjoyable process through which students learn about themselves, their goals, and colleges well-suited to their academic and social interests. As an independent educational consultant (IEC), Maria Nissi partners with parents and students to provide personalized support throughout the process.
Maria helps students:
recognize their strengths and explore relevant degrees and careers
discover and define their goals for higher education
identify good-fit colleges where they are likely to thrive

Maria helps parents:
save time and reduce stress
evaluate options, including location, curriculum, college culture, resources, and cost
maintain peace of mind that their children are making carefully weighed decisions about the future.
