Inside Admissions Consulting
Inside Admissions Consulting is a Pittsburg, Pennsylvania-based admissions consulting firm. It was founded in 2017 by Jen Partica, a former Bucknell University and Susquehanna University college admissions officer with a decade of experience in the college admissions sector. The firm appears to be a family-run firm as the only other employee listed on the website is Frank Partica, a partner in the company.
According to its website, Inside Admissions Consulting provides admissions consulting services, but does not offer test prep or academic tutoring services like many other college admissions companies. Interestingly, the company only provides admissions consulting services to U.S. citizens seeking entry into a 4-year college. The website specifically states that it does not provide services to international students or foreign citizens legally residing in the United States, in sharp contrast to the majority of companies. It provides in-person and online workshops to educate families and students about the college admissions process, particularly in the Greater Pittsburg area. It offers several different package options with catchy names, including Up and Running (building a college list), Ducks in a Row (consulting on writing essays, resume building, interview guidance, and other assistance), a House in Order (step by step management of the admissions process), House Party, and one-on-one consultations. It also provides workshops and seminars for businesses on different educational topics.
