College Admissions Consulting

College Admissions Counseling and Assessment

You need to know the best path for gaining admission and finding the right major for your student!  Parents spend thousands of dollars on tuitions and student loans pursuing the WRONG degree at the WRONG school!  Dont waste money and time!

At Cornerstone, we have licensed and credentials as well as real-world experience helping many Ventura and Los Angeles County families. Our counselors have worked in colleges as Faculty and know what the schools are seeking for admissions.  We have degrees in Business, Education and Counseling and memberships in national organizations like IECA (Independent Educational Consultant Association) and NACAC (National Association for College Admission Counseling), and certification from an accredited counseling programs.

Being accepted into a top college comes down to how you market yourself as an applicant. There are plenty of students with good test scores and grades, so in order to be accepted by a top university what an applicant needs is to stand out from this enormous and highly qualified crowd. All of our admission consultants are Former College Admissions Officers and they work with our college applicants to craft memorable narratives and personal statements that best address their unique backgrounds, interests, and how they will contribute to the college to which they apply. Our admission consultants advise on how to best position the college application so as to match it with what each college desires to see in its students. Most importantly, our admission consultants ensure that student essays, teacher recommendation letters, activity sheets, addendums, and interviews all support this positioning strategy. 

This is NOT like the SCAM at USC that broke in 2019!  NO side door illegal methods here!  We are ethical and practical counselors who have proven LEGAL advice and direction for students and parents.
