Admissions Guidance


Looking for a college that’s a better fit?

Marks Education will guide you through the college transfer admission process. Transferring to a new college presents a completely different set of requirements and challenges from the typical freshman admission process. Transfer students are faced with:

  • A greater variety of admission deadlines;
  • Fluctuating admit rates from year to year;
  • More complex admission essays.

Our transfer admission counselor can help. Robert Clark has an inside view of the process, having served as chair of the transfer admission committee at Georgetown University. Drawing from this experience, as well as his research on changing trends in higher education, he will provide one-on-one counseling, customized to suit each student’s and family’s needs.

From one, hour-long session to a year-long package, Robert works with families to create an effective, efficient plan for transfer admission success.

He is on your side—every step of the way.

For each student, Robert creates a tailored, strategic plan for optimal achievement.

Robert helps transfer applicants plan ahead and manage their time to meet deadlines, recognizing that many students are balancing challenging coursework and other responsibilities. Because Robert understands how admission officers read applications, he can help families and students turn authentic interests into strong applications.

His recommendations are based on the latest research.

Our team loves data. We work together to crunch numbers and speak to contacts inside a wide range of universities to understand the stated and unstated priorities driving admission decisions. We believe our record of success is based on our dedication to research and professional development.

Your reasons for transferring are unique; your application should be, too.

The transfer process is different for every student. Robert takes the time to get to know each student, ensuring that every essay and application will convey that student’s distinctive strengths.
