College Admissions Consulting

College admissions assistance to help you put your best foot forward.

Our experienced team of admissions consultants have served on admissions committees at Brown, Colby, Dartmouth, Harvard, Penn, Wharton, Oberlin, Michigan, NYU, Stanford, and other elite institutions. Together with our writing specialists and analysts, our experts work one-on-one with students and their families over many months to navigate the college application process from beginning to end, providing advice and guidance on everything from college selection, strategic application targeting, to personal and supplemental essays, and much more.

Through conversations with students and their families, we identify each student’s goals, preferences, accomplishments, academics, and interests, and then we match our students with colleges and programs in the U.S. that make a good fit. We’ll guide you through brainstorms, outlines, and revisions of your personal statement and supplemental essays, as well as assist you with research on specific programs and majors so that you can make a more compelling case to admissions committees. Along the way, we’ll suggest practical ways to improve your application.

Already applied but didn’t get the results you wanted? We regularly help with transfer applications, and our team also has experience helping students appeal waitlist decisions and deferrals.

Our students are regularly accepted to top schools across the country. See here for a full list of recent undergraduate admissions results.
