As professional consultants, we view each student through objective and experienced eyes in the same way that admissions officers do. Submitting hundreds of applications with each admissions cycle enables us to assess what works (and what doesn’t) to help students showcase their distinctive attributes to each college on their list. We develop close personal relationships with our students throughout the process, which ensures that we really get to know them as individuals. Yet, we are also sufficiently detached so we can differentiate between parents’ rightful pride in their children and qualities that merit accentuating in the college process.
Like so many other aspects of our lives, COVID-19 upended the college admissions process, which was already exceptionally confusing and competitive. Since the pandemic, application numbers at many American universities have skyrocketed, leading acceptance rates to plunge even further. The landscape around standardized testing has also changed dramatically since the pandemic, transforming a once-routine aspect of the admissions process into a complex, time-consuming series of decisions requiring extensive analysis. Our expert team stays current on the rapidly-changing admissions climate in order to help students successfully navigate the post-pandemic admissions process.
