BestFit Educational Consultants was established in 2013 to help students seeking to study in selective to highly selective undergraduate colleges and universities in the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada. We work closely with students, usually over several years, to help them to get admitted into the colleges that best fit their abilities, interests, and aspirations.
Students may choose to start with work with us in their 9th, 10th, 11th, or 12th grade or in a ‘Gap year’ following the completion of their 12th grade. We believe that the longer we have an opportunity to work with a student, the more impact we can have on their college admissions.
The services we provide vary based on the point in time that a student first starts working with us. For students joining in the 12th Grade (Senior Year of High School), the emphasis is on reviewing the existing academic and extracurricular profile of the student, helping to research and connect with colleges, building a balanced ‘College List' based on the student's profile and ‘college fit’ preferences, assisting the student to best communicate their existing achievements, brainstorming for essay ideas, providing extensive feedback during essay editing, and support in filling and submitting the college applications.
For students who join in the 9th, 10th, or 11th Grades (High School Freshmen, Sophomores or Juniors), the emphasis is on helping them develop and explore their academic and extracurricular interests and learn about possible career options that fit their interests and academic strengths. We can then work closely with the students to help them develop stronger academic and extracurricular profiles, as well as key transferable skills. These extracurricular academic and non-academic accomplishments will make it more likely that the students will gain admission to more selective colleges, receive larger Merit Aid scholarships, and develop the skills to succeed in college from the day they arrive.
Obviously, the longer we can work with a student, the more impact we can have on the success of that student!! Students are strongly encouraged to begin working with BestFit no later than the summer before 10th grade.
Students may choose to apply to undergraduate options in the United States, United Kingdom, or Canada…as well as any combination of those three countries. The services are provided on the basis on country specific Service Packages. The professional fees and services provided primarily depend on how many years that the student will be working with us before they apply to college.
