After 35 years of legal practice in the Capital District, I am thrilled to be launching my lifelong passion for higher education and college admissions into my new business Ellen Roesch, Your College Coach! Thank you for visiting my site and best of luck to all the parents and students out there searching for the perfect fit. I believe there is a college for every student and it’s my goal to help you find it!
You may wonder why a veteran lawyer has decided to become a college admissions coach. Believe me, you wouldn’t be the first person to ask the question. Although, when you take a closer look at the skill sets required for both jobs, and then add the unique skills and talents that I bring to the table, it’s truly a winning combination:
• Lawyers are skilled writers which is a key component to the college admissions and essay writing process.
• Lawyers have extraordinary attention to detail and patience with bureaucratic challenges, also part of the admissions game.
• Practicing law involves the ability to cut through red tape, track early deadlines and push to a finish line successfully, which is the end goal here!
These skills are the key when managing differing college requirements, testing dates, interviews, tours and letters of recommendation. I am undaunted by paperwork!
