We know what top universities look for in applications. We’ll teach you to craft essays that fit each college’s student recruitment priorities, putting you above similar (or even more qualified) candidates.
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!
We assist students through every stage of their scholarly development, from freshmen seeking fulfilling and challenging extracurricular activities, to sophomores struggling to prep for SATs, to seniors striving to write the perfect college essay.
Expert guidance through college selection, application portals, and supplemental essays. We’ll help you show your best self to craft appealing applications.
SAT, ACT, and SAT Subject Tests make a huge difference in admissibility. Alex Nelson, our test prep guru, will guide you through the tactics that have led our students to an average 230 (SAT) and 7 (ACT) point increase.
Our approach makes the difference.
Admissions offices at top schools crave passionate intellectuals ready to lead in their field. Meet with us for a Complimentary Consultation to learn what it’ll take to become a stronger candidate.
We teach our students how universities will judge applications, and help write college apps that stand out. See Ivy Scholars admissions chance multiplier for all universities.
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.”
