Lawsuit Reveals High Price for College Consulting Services

calendar iconFebruary 2, 2020

A recent lawsuit has revealed the price some college consulting companies will charge to help students get into the school of their dreams. According to the lawsuit, New York-based private college counseling firm Ivy Coach charged a woman $1.5 million to help her daughter apply to 22 prestigious colleges and seven boarding schools she eyed for high school before applying to college. While the daughter was granted early admission to an Ivy League school, the lawsuit says the mother still owes half of the fee. Ivy Coach argues that due to the remaining balance, it has lost opportunities to engage with other clients.

More on the Ivy Coach lawsuit is available on the Inside Higher Ed website.
