Welcome to Hillstrom College Counseling!
I am an Independent College Consultant who lives in Eugene, Oregon. While counseling with families during the past seventeen years I’ve heard parents say, “When I applied to college all I had to do was fill out a few applications and send in my SAT scores- and I GOT IN!” Things have changed. Today’s college admission process can be confusing and daunting. While working with high school students and parents I will provide consistent, timely and realistic help most often in a person-to-person setting. I use my knowledge to guide and attitude to empower students. I enjoy working with teenagers as they pursue the next step in their career life. I can travel to serve families in Oregon and the Seattle area of Washington. Please explore my website and contact me if you would like me to help.
Mj Hillstrom, College Admission Consultant
My services are not meant to substitute the services of high school counselors- I highly respect what they do. I simply hope to be another mentor to students during this rite of passage. The college admission process should ideally start at the beginning of the Junior year
My “To Do” list for Juniors usually includes the following:
Then the application process happens in the senior year

Two packages of my services are offered, including communication with high school students and parents, preparation of an appropriate college list based on interests and student profiles, planning for admission exams, editing application essays, college visits and interview information, financial aid and scholarships, and finalizing the college choice.
I have assembled a wealth of information, links, and resources that are invaluable for any family embarking on the college admission process.
