Ivy Scholars College Admissions Consulting
It's a different era in college admissions.
How We Help
We’re unapologetically obsessed with college admissions. What does Stanford want to see in their supplemental essays? How to decide between Restrictive Early Action and Early Decision? Which universities will forgive subpar scores? We know the answers!
In this way we are able to assist students at every stage of their scholarly development, from freshmen seeking fulfilling and challenging activities, to sophomores struggling to ready themselves to tests, to seniors striving to write the perfect college essay.
The Ivy Scholars Competitive Edge
Frequently asked questions
The best time to start planning is 8th or 9th grade. Students are rarely self-motivated at this age, so parents have to take responsibility for helping their children to plan. Ideal students walk into their first day of high school with a list of extracurricular activities to explore and specialize in 1-2 activities by 10th grade. By 11th grade, a student’s college candidacy is mostly set, but quick intervention can still help juniors qualify for higher-tier admissions than they otherwise would.
A college admissions coach serves as an intermediary between parents and students, provides clear expert advice, structure, and understands what universities want in an applicant. A student from Ivy Scholars class of 2018 (Wharton class of 2022) put it best, “going into the admissions process alone is like going to court without a lawyer – you put yourself at a significant disadvantage because you don’t have all the facts in front of you or the help you need to navigate the system.”
