Geldermann College Consulting

Navigating the college admissions maze can be confusing and overwhelming!

At Geldermann College Consulting, we are here to demystify the process for you!

Geldermann College Consulting is an independent educational consulting practice that specializes in guiding students and their families through the college admissions process. At Geldermann College Consulting, “finding the fit” goes well beyond college rankings. We believe that no two students are alike; through a comprehensive assessment and journey of self-discovery, we strive to understand the unique qualities of each student, their interests and passions, and what makes them “tick”! Using the right balance of nurturer and taskmaster, we encourage students to take ownership of the process, ultimately giving them the tools to choose a list of schools that suit their academic and extracurricular interests, and meet their long-term goals. This is accomplished through step-by-step guidelines, where expectations are outlined to the students and their parents. From the initial assessment and creation of the college list to essay brainstorming and application completion, communication is emphasized, so that the entire process is easier, less stressful, and exciting!
