WHO IS REBECCA KLEIN, AND WHY WORK WITH RK COLLEGE ADMISSIONS CONSULTING & ASSISTANCE?
- Before becoming an independent educational consultant, Rebecca had more than 12 years of experience in the management and programming of one of South Florida’s most well-respected non-profit scholarship programs and educational foundations. Along with ensuring nearly 5,000 college-bound students in South Florida received funding for college, she was also instrumental in developing programs and initiatives for underrepresented and first-generation high school students in the South Florida area in conjunction with other community-based organizations in Miami-Dade and Broward County. During that time, she also saw a growing need and personally mentored numerous high school students who needed additional guidance and assistance with the college application process (some on a pro bono basis.) This passion for helping students soon turned into a part-time project while still running the scholarship program and foundation. In 2019, when the education and scholarship foundation ceased operations due to a lack of corporate funding, Rebecca shifted gears and made college admissions consulting her full-time commitment. This was when RK College Admissions Consulting was officially born and launched. Not counting current clients, she has had the honor and opportunity to personally consult and assist more than 120 students on the college planning journey over the last 8 years.
- All of her students have yielded positive results in some way. Her students either got accepted into their #1 choice or were admitted into a school that was a GREAT FIT for them (with most offering additional merit scholarships.) Though she cannot guarantee that your student will get accepted into every school on their college list, she will strive to do her best to make sure they have the BEST CHANCE possible to get into the best school for them to reach their educational and career goals. Her main goal is for her students to find the best school to fit their academic, financial, and emotional needs.
- Before serving as the program administrator for the education foundation and running her college consulting business working with college-bound students, Rebecca worked in the Public Relations and Communications industry for 13 years. She began working in this industry right after graduating with a Creative Writing and Communications degree from Florida State University in 1994. In her years of working within the public relations/communications sector, she excelled at portraying her clients in the best way possible and spreading their positive message to the public. She can and will do the same for your son or daughter. She will help them develop their own personal narrative and display it in the best way possible in their applications and essays.
- Rebecca is an associate member in good standing of the Independent Educational Consultants Association (IECA) and a current member of the Southern Association for College Admissions Counseling (SACAC). She is consistently attending conferences and seminars and visiting campuses across the country to provide her students with the most up-to-date information about the schools they may be interested in applying to. The College Admissions landscape is constantly changing, and Rebecca has the knowledge, tools, and experience needed to guide your student in the best way possible.
