International College Counselors Weighs in on College Admissions: Then and Now

Miami, FL (PRWEB) May 01, 2013

Parents are in for a surprise if they think college admissions is anything like they experienced it. The whole process has changed. Colleges are more selective and students are more competitive. Unsurprisingly, the Internet has led to big changes in the approach, said Mandee Heller Adler, CEO and founder of International College Counselors.

Some issues that the college advisors at International College Counselors have addressed the most this year with both domestic and international students include

1. Obsession about majors. Many schools encourage students to declare majors right when they come in. Many parents discourage students from considering majors in which there isnt a clear path to a high-paying (or, at least, some kind of) job. And many students think its a point of special pride to do a double (or sometimes even triple) major. Not to mention picking up a minor or two on the side.
