For students and families who understand that they require more particular attention than school counselors can provide, an Independent Counselor can be a necessary and invaluable resource. Independent Counselors provide you with experience and professional skills, as well as dedication for your best interests.

Regrettably, most high school counselors in India have a poor understanding of the procedures, apprehensions, etc. - it is all new to them. They are also responsible for many students and therefore unable to give holistic attention. An independent counselor will spend hours with you and your family to get to the essence of your character, passions, abilities, and aspirations.

It’s not just about being accepted; it’s about being accepted at the program that is the right fit for you. Independent Counselors at Paramount have extensive, first-hand knowledge of colleges and graduate schools, big and small, around the country as they spend much of their time on the road, meeting with admission officers, touring campuses, and exploring the programs. Independent Counselors will act as your guide, interpreter, and facilitator for the entire application process.

Working with someone who understands the system can be invaluable during this stressful time. Because your counselor functions independently, they will be able to assist you in navigating the gathered information, as well as in assessing each program.
