a comprehensive, step-by-step process

Profile Evaluation & School List Selection

We spend a lot of time on this step evaluating the complete profile of the student. Through a series of conversations and questionnaires, we help to determine the perfect school list based on resume, personality fit, standardized test scores, and future aspirations.

We also consider more objective measures like future ROI. From here we can also determine the best overall application strategy and whether you should apply EA, ED or REA.


Student Branding

The key to a successful application is a cohesive story that aligns accurately with our clients current profile and future aspirations.

Through a deeply introspective socratic process, we help to discover the best "admissions narrative" to determine the ideal strategy for how to present your unique story through emphasizing a range of ways to approach various components like academics, extra-curriculars or talent, essays, recommendation or voice and interviews.

Applications Guidance & Management

The Common/Coalition App, OUAC, UCAS, Stand-Alone or any other application from across the globe can be tricky sometimes, so we will help you avoid the common pitfalls of filling out all these infamous applications.

Plus, it's likely that some schools on your list won't accept any one type of application over the other, so your counselor will be there every step of the way to make sure you're completing your relevant applications well in advance of the deadline.


Essay Assistance

You will be provided with the trained essay specialist. Students don't have much experience writing the type of essays that admission officers are looking for - Indeed, schools have taught them to write academic analysis and history papers rather than introspective personal statements.

Your essay specialist will first help you brainstorm the perfect essay idea, guide you through the first drafting and revision process and make sure that the essay is free of any errors.

Unlimited Hours of Counseling

Based on years of experience, we know that your admissions situation is a little different, and you'll inevitably have questions about the process.
