Pam Rambo works individually with high school students preparing to apply for college admission.

About Rambo Research...

The signature service provided is professional college admission advising and college admissions process assistance for students and families by phone and online.

Different in depth & breadth of skills and experience in both college admissions counseling and paying for college, services are designed to help get teens into colleges and majors where their strengths and needs are best served. 

College planning and application assistance is offered to clients who come from all over Virginia, as well as clients from other states, who are most often referred by friends and family who have used our services.

Experience and Qualifications

Looking back over my career, I could not have had a more perfect preparation for what I do today. It started with my own education. I had great advising from my college counselor and went on to earn a doctorate in Counseling as a result of her assessment of the skills in which I was most gifted. This resulted in a career that spanned director level experience in college academic counseling, college financial aid, college admissions, college scholarships, college access, veterans benefits and career assessment testing. My mission today is to provide the expert educational consulting for high school and college students that I received in college. The resulting extensive college admissions and process counseling skill and experience has been a critical element in developing services to assess student gifts and help today's students succeed with college applications. A wonderful by-product of the service is that it also helps parents relax.
