Every student has a strong, unique story, even if he/she doesn’t realize it. We are experts at crafting and developing that story. We are also experts at providing a support system during a very stressful time in your life.

Why Use a Coach?

We’ll ask the question another way: why NOT use a coach?

You’ve spent 18+ years preparing for this. Why not hire an expert to guide you through your school/college/specialty program applications and help you differentiate from the thousands of other applicants?

The Dean of Admissions at a prestigious school recently said: “We’re not looking for them to be larger than life. We’re looking for them to live who they are, be who they are, and show us a side of them we can be excited about. It’s not about being the best or having the most superlatives. It’s about who they are and whether they’re a good fit.”

Application

College is NOT just a numbers game. The majority of highly selective colleges and universities consider your application materials to be “extremely important.”

Grades are Inflated

Grades are inflated = 55% of college applicants nationwide have an “A” grade point average.

Test Scores

Perfect test scores aren’t enough. Even students with perfect standardized test scores get rejected from top schools = quantitative application elements aren’t enough.

Test-Optional

Some top schools are becoming test-optional = standardized tests are ubiquitous. See here for the most updated list of test-optional schools: http://www.fairtest.org/university/optional

Environment

Students are judged by the academic environment in which they reside; this is why “territory managers” exist = the more resources, the tougher the criticism.

Holistic Review

More schools are moving toward a “holistic review” process = schools thoroughly review all submitted materials.
