We determine the winning strategy by focusing not only on the applicant's strengths but also by identifying any weaknesses or shortcomings in their academic background or extracurricular experiences and possible alternate ways to overcome them.
College and University Selection
This is one of the most underestimated steps in the college admissions process. Before even beginning their admission preparation, most students decide on the college they want to get in. However, you cannot get through the college of your choice only on the basis of your test scores. A wrong calculation here can make you miss out in applying to your best-fit college and not being accepted into you top-choice program. We ensure that you apply to those colleges where you will be considered a good–fit , and for doing so we put in a lot of research in creating that college list for you.
Starting from which round you should apply – Early Action, Early Decision, Rolling, Regular - we help you tie together all your information including your academic grades and achievements, extracurricular activities, summer activities, work, personal and family life throughout the application, and particularly in your essays. We help you fine tune your application to maximize credentials.
We brainstorm ideas to develop that distinctive voice and help you in developing the content of your personal statement and essays, and how to present them in the way that is best understood by the admission committee.
Letters of Recommendation
Your teacher's recommendations will probably be strong if you have chosen the right teachers. We provide that input on how to get the best letters of recommendations, and what are the appropriate methods to emphasize significant moments to the recommender.
Our Strengths and Differentiating Factors:
- Our understanding of the needs of the top-schools
- We have a very good understanding as to how these admissions officers will evaluate your essays. Your personal statement should not be written with the aim to impress the admission committee but instead it should give a clear picture of who you are. We make sure to structure your essays / personal statement on all the parameters that these schools look for.
- Flawless Marketing Documents: What does marketing involve? When to market your strengths? Communicating your strengths by documentation. We do all this and much more while preparing that "elevator pitch" for you.
- Matchmaking: One of our biggest strengths is creating the best match between the candidates and the schools. While making the final decision, the schools care for assessing your objective, understanding of the school, your goals etc. We understand this very well.
