University Guidance Counseling:

This service, personalized and detail oriented is offered to a select number of students every year. Since this service entails getting to know an individual's strengths, challenges, and goals in life, it is approached with care and with the knowledge afforded by several years of practice as a counselor, professor, and administrator at universities large and small in the United States.

University Guidance Placement:

Where to study? What to study? How to best present yourself? What tests are indispensable to take? Which universities do not require SAT, and are still competitive? Which college will look at your potential, and be more lenient regarding your shortcoming? Is a Liberal Studies education the best option for you? Is an applied, career-focused program what you really want? Should you consider an undergraduate/graduate option from the onset? How about a double major? What is the best preparation for Law School? How about Medical School, or Veterinary Medicine? Which are the best programs in Music and Liberal Arts? What about Fine Arts? What type of job could I get? What is the best fit for me?

All these and a host of other questions are what we can explore. ESI uses counseling techniques refined through years of interviewing, assessing and placing students, scholars, and professionals from all over the world in university programs in the U.S. It is a thorough and lengthy process, which starts with a free phone/Skype, or personal interview to determine the sequences of work.
