Want to Be Academically Successful and Happy at College? Emerson Educational Consulting Can Help You Find Colleges and Universities That Are Right for You.


At Emerson Educational Consulting, we are committed to helping students and graduate school candidates find colleges and universities where they will be academically successful and happy.


Your college years should be a time for exploration and new experiences. In the words of Dr. J. S. Lehman, former Cornell president: "May you frequently travel beyond the places that are comfortable and familiar, the better to appreciate the miraculous diversity of life." We enjoy helping students find exciting and challenging places in which to do this.
