When the ranking dominates, the college admissions falls into panic. This is especially true to the Chinese students that select colleges by the college ranking. The ranking digitalizes the landscape of today’s higher education in the world but it also throws thousands of the college bound family into the disorder of a mindset. The digits can only present us some but not the entire of educational values a college confers. The fundamental value of the independent educational consultants is to help the families resume as informed and educated individuals to think beyond the “getting in” issues to set up a high bar of their educational pursuit and life journey, making their forthcoming college life meaningful and rewarding.
The values of a college can never been defined by ranking only. Rather, they can be identified in a wide range, by the faculties’ dedication in teaching and supporting, by the size of class in which how students are taught, respected, cared and supported, by the campus cultures in which how the students, especially the alien students, are included instead of separated, and by the external opportunities, social or academic, which helps the students establish meaningful connections with a wider world, etc. All these are vital to a successful college experience but never indentified in the digitalized college ranking.
As educational consulting firm mainly serving Chinese nationals, it’s sad to see so many young talents each year “fail” in the college admission of their “dream schools” since the ranking mindset narrows down their college choices. Among thousands of higher establishments in the US, how to find the good-fit ones is a time-consuming but rewarding job. Our college admission counseling service helps the families to go deep into the sophisticated higher education landscape to explore and connect with the colleges, either the highly-reputed colleges or the hidden-gem one, that most meet the educational needs of our clients.
