Do you guarantee we'll get into the college of our choice?
No. Unfortunately, we can't guarantee you will get into any specific college. Our services are designed to help you find a college that is a good fit, improve your chances of getting into college, be prepared academically, financially, and socially for college, and to be ready to succeed in college.
Will you be our main point of contact with universities?
We will work with you side-by-side during the admissions and visa process. This will typically take the form of us coaching students on how to interact with the colleges they're interested in as it's very important for students to reach out to colleges and admissions officers. Not only does it help them develop communication skills with adults in an "interview-type" situation, it's also critical to develop personal relationships with admissions officers, faculty, coaches, etc who can act as advocates for students.
Do you offer SAT or act tutoring?
We do not offer SAT or ACT tutoring. We don't believe we can provide these services at a better level than you can find online for free. There are plenty of free websites offering SAT and ACT strategies and practice questions. Khan Academy, for example, has excellent, free SAT prep.
What if i want to get started before my junior year?
While most students start their college search in earnest heading into their junior year, there are plenty of students who want to get started early. If that's you, please reach out to us about investigating your college options earlier. At the end of your sophomore year is a good time to start!
are your services cookie-cutter or personalized?
Our services are definitely personalized. Our services are about you achieving your dreams and that requires us tailoring everything to you. We'll work with you on strengthening your weaknesses and highlighting your strengths to give you the best chance of getting into your dream school.
