Biography

Diane Wilcox

My private education consulting practice evolved when I left the role of high school guidance counselor to become a high school administrator, which was 17 years ago. This has been my full-time commitment for 6 years. I regularly attend state and national conferences, as well as tour and visit about 20-25 colleges per year. (Do the math! I have seen a lot of schools.)

My Philosophy

I firmly believe there is a great college for every applicant. Working together to find the right “fit” is our goal. I also think that the college process is very fun, but it has a lot of little pieces so you have to be organized as you go through the process.

Testimonial

“We can’t thank Diane enough for all her support and encouragement. Our son truly enjoyed his time with her and never saw it as a burden to come. Diane gave him the support, confidence and tools to be successful in his application and essay submissions. We also appreciate her advice and encouragement she has given our kids so far with their high school academic/extracurricular choices. Again, we have watched and listened on the initial visits with each (four more to go) of our kids as Diane got to know them by talking and listening to them. She truly knew by listening their strengths and weaknesses. Diane guided them to make choices that would better them not only academically, but socially through extracurricular choices that truly reflected the kind of people they really are inside

~Parent.”

“Diane has been a tremendous benefit to our family for the college application process. Diane is someone my son respects. She has a way of gently telling him when something is not right or needs additional work. He will listen to her without fighting or arguing as he tends to do with us. My husband and I are amazed when we watch her at work with him. She helped him get organized and easily meet his time line. The whole process took a major stress off of us "
