Some folks who write into us ask what the purpose of our free college admissions consults are if these consults are not to offer specific advice about the admissions process pertaining to your child but rather only to answer questions about our service offerings. It’s a fair point! The fact is that when you click on our orange button and fill out our free consult form, you end up receiving an email that describes our services in detail. So why do you need a free 20-minute consultation to ask more questions about our services if we won’t answer questions pertaining directly to your child? Why do we make you jump through this hoop? Well, you don’t have to do the free consult. If you want to just start with our paid consulting, that’s your option. But the free consult is an opportunity for you to get a feel for how we roll at Ivy Coach and it’s also an opportunity for us to get a feel for how you roll.
While it may surprise you, we are not at all interested in working with everyone. We like to work with nice people. People with realistic expectations. People who appreciate us. So this free consultation works both ways. And while we may let the world know that we do not offer specific advice related to your child during these free consultations, the fact is that many parents come away with a few tidbits of specific advice about their child, even if they never retain our services. Do we give away the store? No. Maybe you’ll get one tidbit. Not four. We just have always operated our company under the philosophy of under-promising and over-delivering. And this practice has suited us well.
If you’re interested in signing up for a free 20-minute consult, simply click on our orange button and fill out the form you’ll find there. We will then get back to you within the day. Unless we’re totally swamped. But usually we get back within the day. If we don’t, no need to write us eight emails, call us three times, and send a carrier pigeon. We’ll get back to you. As Nelson Mandela said when leaving office in the new South Africa, “Don’t call me. I’ll call you.” We agree, President Mandela. We agree.
