Biography

After a long and successful career with a Global 500 company, Rana decided to pursue a second career.  Her son, who had recently graduated from Cornell University and her daughter, who was attending Massachusetts Institute of Technology, suggested that she might want to become an independent college admissions consultant.  They recognized the joy she had working with them on their respective college searches.  Rana went back to school, completed a certificate in Independent Educational Consulting, resumed visiting colleges, and founded Slosberg College Solutions LLC, where she works with high school students and their families on the college search and application process.

Rana has a Bachelor of Science degree in Systems Engineering from NYU, a Master of Arts degree in Computer Science from Queens College, and an Independent Educational Consultant Certificate from the University of California Irvine Extension. She attends workshops and college admissions conferences to keep abreast of changes in the field.  Rana visits colleges regularly.

In addition to working with students, Rana speaks and blogs on a variety of college admissions topics.

Rana is a member of the Higher Education Consultants Association (HECA) and the New Jersey Association for College Admission Counseling (NJACAC). 

Slosberg College Solutions LLC is a member of the Somerset County Business Partnership, the regional Chamber of Commerce.

Rana will be happy to refund the cost of your initial ECN call, if you contract with her for her college selection, college application, or comprehensive package.

The answer varies from college to college. You can check http://www.collegedata.com for the college you are interested in, under the college's "Admission" tab. This will tell you whether the interview is very important, important, considered or not considered at that college.
