A Historic Breakthrough
In 2012, we won development funding from the University of Southern California to develop results-oriented college counseling methodology. After innovating methods that ethically lifted students with low grades and SAT/ACT scores into highly selective colleges—and gave all students a measurable advantage—we became the only independent college counselors USC has ever invited to present a series of workshops alongside its admissions office.
How We Decoded College Admissions
We studied “Miracle students.” They have lower grades, test scores, no outwardly special hooks, and still get into their dream colleges over peers with better academic qualifications. While classmates describe them as “only average,” one admissions officer described their applications as "too good of a fit to turn away."
How We Increase the Certainty of Your Admissions Outcomes
We identified common denominator trends in students who get accepted to the colleges you desire, and we can help you uniquely demonstrate those colleges' definitions of "fit" with the most compelling windows into your life. We also speak with deans and conduct proprietary research to gain unparalleled insights. For example, 4 years before Harvard's Turning the Tide study on the future of college admissions, we'd already predicted and were applying its recommendations. We're ahead of the trends; that's how we get results.
