OUR CLIENTELE

We work with the most discerning people in the world

We count Olympians and the children of billionaires, Fortune 500 executives, top legal and medical minds, successful business owners, and more as our clients.

Interestingly, 10% of our clientele were working with another company or coach when they learned about The Application Authority; 100% of those families switched over to work with us. To learn more about their satisfaction, see here.

It doesn’t matter who you are, we are always committed to providing the highest level of service.

Our mission is your admission, so let’s work together to ace the app!

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.
