Felix Educational Consulting was started in response to Debra Felix’s experience as Director of Admissions at Columbia University and three decades as an Admissions Consultant to many excellent schools and individuals.
As the goal of admissions offices changed from selecting the right students to amassing the largest number of applications, Debra realized that busy applicants and families need help wading through the quagmire of marketing materials and rankings in order to focus their limited time and resources on the schools most likely to provide their children with the best experiences and opportunities. Families also need help getting inside the minds of the admissions committee to understand what AOs (Admissions Officers) are really looking for when they review an application. Finally, teens need help putting together the most effective application possible so they are admitted to the best schools for them.
Having known and worked with Debra Felix, I can state with assurance that her substantive knowledge of educational options, her gift in counseling students and parents, and her ethical professionalism are what allow her to serve her clients so well.
