College Application Packages

When applying to colleges that reject the majority of applicants, every advantage counts. Maximize your chances of acceptance by writing your best college essay and crafting the other 60% to 75% of your applications' written components that stump most applicants.

How it Works

We offer two result-oriented packages: The Complete Package and the Elite Package.

The Complete Package: Most students won't require more than the Complete Package's default hours to complete the most common institutionally shared applications (e.g. the Common Application, UC Application, Coalition Application, or ApplyTexas Application), which contain essays that shouldn't be tailored to any one college. It also includes enough hours to complete one to three non-overlapping supplemental essays that may be additionally required by some colleges and should be uniquely tailored to each college. Often times, however, supplemental essays prompts do overlap, allowing you to get more mileage out of them.

Tip: If the particular major or colleges you're targeting require more supplemental, non-overlapping essays than usual, you can add extra hours to your Complete Package at a discounted rate to finish them. This way, you get exactly the help you need without overpaying for unlimited help you won't use. We're happy to provide a free estimate of how many extra hours, if any, you will likely need based on your specific major, colleges, and work habits.

The Elite Package: The Elite Package is our Complete Package equipped with many extra hours to support a student who is distinctly applying to only top 15 colleges (i.e. all of the Ivies and ultra elite colleges). In addition to requiring interview preparation, the top 15 colleges tend to require many extra essays that have little overlap and should be especially fine-tuned for sophistication.

Tip: If you're only applying to only two to four top 15 ranked colleges, then we recommend the Complete Package, with extra hours added, so you don't pay for hours you won't end up needing.

Success Rate: 99.97% of the students who fully completed either of our college application packages have been admitted to one or more of their top 3 choice colleges, with the remaining 0.03% still being admitted to a top 6 ranked college for their desired major, so long as their grades and tests scores had been above the bottom 25th percentile of their admitted peers.

Full Details:

Money-back Guarantee: Your Top 3 Choices, a Top 100 Ranked College, or a college that accepts 39% or fewer applicants (view terms & exceptions).

You Get: Up to 10 cumulative hours of counseling that can be used for live meetings, phone coaching and email coaching. This package is ideal for the typical student applying to the UCs and a couple of private or out of state colleges (note: each private or out-of-state college may require one or more extra, school-specific essays).

The 10 hours help most students finish the entire UC Application (5 pages of writing) and the entire Common Application (4 pages of writing). Plus, students often have enough time left over to complete 1 to 3 extra school specific essays that some particular Common Application member colleges may require. If a student is submitting a Coalition Application or ApplyTexas application, the hours that would've gone towards the supplemental essays can be used to develop those applications instead because these applications have each college's supplemental essays built into the main applications (rather than being separated). Once the hours are exhausted, additional hours may be purchased at the discounted rate of $200/hr.

With the Complete Package, you'll get:

✓ A step-by-step, no stress program for parents and students to get through the college applications and college essays
✓ Management of important dates and deadlines
✓ The ability to finish your college application(s) in as little as 5 weeks (or a choose a customized schedule that works for you) with deadline accountability
✓ Start before the applications are released: we have this year's prompts & guidelines
✓ Plus 40+ hours of College Zoom’s interactive online pre-meeting exercises (guide you step-by-step in thoughtfully completing 90% of your application’s components before we work on them 1-on-1)

A student may need additional time if he or she:

• Has chosen to apply to colleges that require more extra essays than usual.
• Doesn’t complete assigned homework or exert enough effort, requiring remedial counseling that sets back our agreed upon schedule
• Has special needs or learning challenges that require extra help to achieve a satisfactory work product.

To sign up, contact us for a free consultation. This plan fits most students, but we want to ensure it is right for you. If it isn't, we'll build you a custom one.
