She stopped getting rejected from the Ivy League.

A top student who used another college counselor got denied by Harvard and Columbia in early submission. After we helped her reveal entirely different windows into her life, Penn, Brown, Duke, and Johns Hopkins accepted her.

Her SAT & ACT scores were low.

We helped a student with bottom 25% SAT and ACT scores get into her Ivy League dream school, Cornell. Her friends who scored much higher on the SAT/ACT and applied early (hoping for an advantage) got waitlisted or denied. She was accepted with a stronger application in regular decision.

She appealed her rejection

A UCLA admissions officer told a student that she was rejected because her GPA was too low. We realized that couldn't be true and helped her win her appeal by addressing the real issue. She got admitted despite her GPA still being under the threshold that the admissions officer said she needed to be above.

He overcame a 2.2% acceptance rate.

We helped a student transfer into Stanford University. The acceptance rate, 2.2%, was more than twice as selective as the acceptance rate for freshmen. We showed him how to reveal his uniqueness in each part of the transfer application, step-by-step.

She never volunteered.

We helped a student without any volunteer hours or extracurricular activities get accepted by every top 25 ranked university to which she applied. We reframed her hobbies—which she initially thought were insignificant—showing her new and more compelling angles to them.

She overcame low grades.

We helped a high school senior with a 3.11 unweighted GPA, no AP math classes, and an SAT score in the bottom 25% of admits get into USC’s Marshall School of Business. Her former school headmaster assured her that she'd be denied. We extenuated her grades and then helped USC see her potential to thrive.
