Be curious. Be connected. Be confident.

College Entry Consulting offers personalized college admissions advising for finding your best college match.


Finding the right match for each student (from over 2,500 four-year colleges in this country!) requires knowledge, research, and careful planning. With over 30 years of experience in higher education, Martha Ravits, Ph.D., personalizes the college search. She provides up-to-date information on college admissions, reassuring guidance, and organizational strategies for all phases of the college search and application process.


Don’t miss opportunities because of financial concerns.

While sticker prices for colleges vary widely, a private education can be surprisingly affordable—in some cases, less costly than a public education. CEC has helped students with a range of abilities and economic circumstances gain support for college in the form of grants and scholarships that make a crucial difference for families.
