As a parent of two children, I know your hectic life makes it hard to juggle all your responsibilities.

I also understand that the college admissions process is enormously complex.  As adults and busy students, we battle the "Busy Swamped Bee" daily. 

This dastardly bee will...

  • Keep you moving so you do not have enough energy to plan for college correctly. I
  • Weigh you down mentally
  • Causing confusion about what you should be doing
  • Wrecking families
  • Stealing your sanity
  • Causing you to miss deadlines
  • Lose out on scholarships
  • Create writer's block
  • Reduce your college options
  • Ultimately cost you an enormous amount of time and money!

The stakes are high, and there is little room for error.

Minor mistakes or omissions could ruin a student's chances and cost a fortune.

Furthermore, spending months trying to solo your way into college while battling the "Busy Swamped Bee" alone will cause stress, sleepless nights, severe pressure, and a never-ending grip of uncertainty.

Let's get around that horrific life situation and tame the "Busy Swamped Bee" together! 

I will implement proven solutions so your family can celebrate a dream college acceptance in just a few months.

Let’s Compare Your Following Year 

Without & With Clark College Consulting

  • Perpetually Failing/Shaky Foundations

The hardest part is starting. This is especially true in the college admission process. You can spend the whole year doing extensive research just to end up at the beginning again.

  • Overworked H.S Guidance Counselors

Always busy, surface-level interested public counselors have too much on their plate. Leaving your child stranded and helpless

  • Your Child Might Hate It

We all heard countless stories where college applicants got into a college they wanted, just to, later on, find out that it is not a right fit for them. Don't let this happen to your child as well

  • Tortures Never-ending Stress

Keeping up with current obligations you have while finding time and energy for a life-changing period of your child's life is impossible (understatement)

  • False and Unreliable Resources

This major problem occurs when you decide to solo your way into college. Ultimately, preparing your child for certain college rejections

  • Losing Monumental Money

Most parents aren't even aware they overpay colleges and consequently spend their days trying to pay back the college debt


  • Foolproof step-by-step guide

 Having a firm and proven strategy prevents getting lost in the sea of deadlines, complicated tasks, and hectic schedules.

  • Personally Tailored Coaching

  Every student is different. We make sure we bring the best out of your child. The average student is a stellar-potential candidate for us.

  • Social, Academic, and Financial Fit

 After further immersing into your child's wishes, grades, extracurricular activities, and financial budget, we hand-pick the best-fit colleges out there.

  • Zero Stress Year-around

This might sound too good to be true, right? Wrong. Thousands of families, just like yours, reaped the relieving benefit of a stress-free environment.

  • Newest updates and data

Save countless hours by having a trustworthy, all-in-one resource for the college admission process.

  • Saving five digits in scholarship fees

 How does an extra $40,000 to $60,000 sound? That's the average cost savings our enrollees receive.
