BECAUSE THERE ARE A LOT OF COLLEGES.

Depending on how you count, there are more than 40 colleges in Oklahoma. If you extend the search to all of America, you’re now looking at more than 4000. 

Realistically, no one ever considers all 4000+ options as he/she searches for the ideal college experience. But certainly, deciding which schools to consider is a multifaceted process. The initial look often includes these attributes:

✅ Location                         
✅ Size
✅ Areas of Study
✅ Cost of Attendance
✅ Financial Aid Options
✅ Acceptance Rate
✅ Retention Rate  
✅ Graduation Rate

Before it’s all over, the search has also likely included a review of:

🔹 Campus Culture 
🔹 Support Services 
🔹 Honors College 
🔹 Pre-Professional Programs 
🔹 Research Opportunities 
🔹 Internships 
🔹 Study Abroad 
🔹 Career Placement 
🔹 Greek Life 
🔹 Intramural Sports 
🔹 Clubs & Activities 
🔹 Religious Affiliations

If you’ve ever worked with a travel agent to help you plan a trip or a financial planner to help you invest your money, you can imagine the benefits of a college consultant. It’s my job to discover your student’s hopes and dreams, and then curate a list of schools that are mostly likely to fulfill those hopes and dreams. 

Finding the ideal college may seem like a daunting task, but information is the key. And information is what I provide. Through the college admissions process, I guide you and your student through every step. I provide the information needed to help you make decisions. No two students are alike, and my approach to college admissions reflects that. Take a peek at the SCOUT website to learn more about my approach.

Thanks for joining me!
