Compass College Consulting believes that the strength of a student's application is based on the quality of the student's academic performance, test scores, essays, achievements, talents and community contributions. These are the qualities that will make a student a competitive candidate for the college of his or her choice. Therefore, in accordance with the strict rules of the Principles of Good Practice, there are a few things that we can not and will not do. Specifically, they are:

  • Write or substantially revise application essays
  • Knowingly misrepresent a client's credentials
  • Accept compensation based on offers of admission
  • Lobby admissions officers on behalf of candidates
  • Promise any form of financial aid or scholarships
  • Guarantee admission to any institution
