Bay Area College Admission Counselor to Provide Complimentary Workshops to Minorities

Share Article

Independent college admission counselor to provide free workshops to ethnic minorities in the Bay Area starting in June, 2013.

Cupertino-based Bay Area College Consulting will begin providing complimentary college admission workshops to low-income ethnic minorities this summer. Independent college counselors are often sought out by affluent families with high household incomes with parents often holding a white-collar job. Trung Le, founder of Bay Area College Consulting, feels that it is unfair for under-representative ethnic minorities, such as Hispanics, to not have access to the same independent college admission counselors. “We live in a society where the affluent can afford, and the poor cannot.”

Mr. Le adds, “Everyone deserves the same opportunity to attend the best colleges and universities in this country, not just the affluent or more educated classes. Gaining admission into these colleges requires years of planning and consultation to build up one’s academic, extra-curricular, and leadership backgrounds.”

The majority of Mr. Le’s clients are affluent. The parents often hold a white-collar position at their companies, and many have their own businesses. These parents are often extremely busy and so are their high school sons and daughters, and they feel that it is best to seek a specialist to aid with the college admission process.

Mr. Le, who has also been a philosophy instructor at De Anza College in Cupertino, CA since 2005, thinks that this is unfair to parents and children who are academically qualified, but who are not in the same affluent class seeking out independent college counselors.

Bay Area College Consulting was founded by Mr. Le through the encouragement of Thomas Midanek, a former student at Diablo Valley College in Pleasant Hill, who recently graduated from American University in Washington, D.C.

Services provided include college application assistance, essay proofreading, summer school consultation, and consultation to build up academic, extra-curricular, and leadership backgrounds.

In-person college counseling service is provided to residents of the South Bay including San Jose, Fremont, Cupertino, Santa Clara, Palo Alto, Mountain View, Los Gatos, and Milpitas. In-home service provided for a nominal fee to East Bay residents including Pleasanton, Walnut Creek, Concord, San Ramon, and Dublin. Free workshops for ethnic minorities will be held on a monthly basis starting this June at the Cupertino office, located south of Apple’s main campus, and only a few miles from De Anza College.
