Five Reasons You Should Consider Extra Help with College Applications
Have you already signed up with an education agent? Most parents sign up for assistance with overseas school applications in advance, and so don’t think they need any additional help. This is not the case. Hiring a second agent can be a great help to an application, and here are the reasons why:
1. A second opinion for confirmation is very useful
Getting a fresh perspective on your case is a great help, and can give you new ideas and direction that you may never have considered with your other agent. An outside view is more objective and able to see creative solutions to difficult problems.
2. Creates a good backup plan
A lot can go wrong with an application, and so having a second consultant who can help with a backup application; a safety net. This gives the student and family peace of mind as they move forward.
3. They can check up on the work of your other agent
Most agents will give you some access to the information they are preparing. A second consultant can act as “fresh eyes” on all application materials to make sure nothing has been overlooked, or to see if any area of the forms can be improved.
4. It broadens your access to knowledge and experience
As the saying goes, “two minds are better than one.” A second consultant needn’t cost as much as your first, but you get access to double the know-how, feedback and advice.
5. You get to take advantage of more services
Companies will differ in the range of services they offer, and you might not find everything you want under one roof. Some are inflexible, others are less-so. Your principal agent might only deal in service packages, but a second consultant could be brought in to offer individual services like essay checking or interview practice.
If you already have signed up with one agency, there’s no reason you shouldn’t consider a second to lend a hand. In fact, above are five great reasons you SHOULD get extra help. Think carefully about your own case – the decisions you make for overseas school applications can affect a student for their entire academic lives!
