Help your child get accepted to the school of their dreams!

We Guide You Through Every Step of the College Application

Let's face it: the college admissions process is overwhelming for any parent. An estimated 21 million students apply to college every year. Many students will make costly mistakes on their applications and end up in the rejection pile. Universities such as Harvard, Yale, and Princeton have an acceptance rate of less than 9%. With nearly 5,000 colleges, private universities, and Ivy League establishments to choose from, the simple act of narrowing down your choices can be daunting.

We understand how college admissions officers tick. We know what they look for. With our support, your budding student's application will stand out from the crowd, in all the right ways. Our expert college admission consultants are available via phone, Skype, Facetime, or email to assist you during the college admission process. College Mentoring consultants will give your child's application the individual attention that it deserves to achieve the results that you want.

Our college admissions experts will give you strategies and advice on how to improve your child's odds of being admitted to Ivy League and ultra-selective schools.

How we can help you

For $175 we provide personalized, one-on-one sessions that will help guide you and your child through the admissions process. We will help answer questions like:

  • What colleges should I be applying to?
  • Which ones should I be visiting?
  • Which ones will be worth my time?
  • Should my child be taking the SATs?
  • Which letters of recommendation are best to use?
  • Does my child's personal statement need improvement?
  • What happens if my child ends up on the waitlist?
  • What kind of questions will the admissions officer ask during an interview?
  • Which clubs and extracurricular activities should my child be enrolled in?
  • What summer activities would be beneficial for a college application?

In addition, your student can speak with up to 3 students (from our database of over 2,700), already attending the schools that they're interested in. It's a powerful way to learn the realities of college life -- and make a smarter decision. Our college student mentors gives you inside information that you won't find anywhere else!
