Impact Advising was created by Karen Daluga as a result of her experience and passion for helping students navigate the challenging college path. As a consultant, Karen spends hours with the student and family getting to know the students personality, interest and aspirations.
Karen schedules one-on-one meetings to determine student's interests and career goals, strengths, college criteria (distance, size, location), possible majors, and investigation of coursework associated with majors, to determine best fit for that individual. She also researches colleges that match the student's profile, helps to develop a college list based on the student's interests and academic profile, and provides in-depth information about possible major and related coursework. In addition, Karen provides interviewing tips, campus visit guidelines, and assists students with applications and setting up a schedule to meet deadlines on standardized tests, applications, and financial aid forms. Finally, she helps families to evaluate financial aid award letters.
