What Our Clients Had To Say

Recently accepted to Michigan, UCLA, UC Berkeley, and more!

My college admissions process was an amazing experience. With the help of my advisor, Julia, I learned a lot. I realized I could be a good writer, to appreciate my life experiences, to never give up on my dreams, and to believe in myself. If I do those things, I can accomplish my goals. Thank you so much for everything!

CollegeAdvisor provided me with all the resources and advice that I needed to succeed during my college application process. What would’ve been a hectic process on my own turned into a methodical, efficient procedure due to my advisor’s knowledge and experience. CollegeAdvisor is also unique in the way that I had access to all of the advisors on the network, an opportunity I used extensively to receive more personalized feedback from alumni of schools I was interested in. My advising sessions covered everything, from planning a school list to tailoring essays for certain scholarships. I would recommend CollegeAdvisor to anyone who wants to have a calm and structured application period.

Elena H.

Admitted to Dartmouth Early Decision

I was ecstatic when I received the decision from my top choice! It was a moment I have been looking forward to for years. My advisor provided so much support with essay brainstorming, editing/revising, and mock interview preparation. She was always available to meet as soon as I needed to and left feedback within a day or two of receiving my drafts. And when I informed my alumni interviewer of my acceptance, he said I was the best applicant he had interviewed in the past two years!

Recently accepted to Columbia, University of Washington, Northeastern, + more!

Looking back, I was just a non-experienced senior who knew nothing about college applications. With my advisor, I crafted great application essays and discussed so many application questions. It's a great honor to have help through the platform of CollegeAdvisor and work with the most experienced advisors during this year's application season. When I initially I heard about CollegeAdvisor on YouTube, I didn't expect that this team could offer me so many amazing services. I am so proud to introduce the CollegeAdvisor Team to all of my teachers and can confidently say my essays were as good as they were because I had an amazing group of people to help me edit them. I've actively recommended CollegeAdvisor to juniors in my high school. I truly enjoyed what was supposed to be a tough journey in my life. I love CollegeAdvisor and I appreciated the opportunity to work so closely with my advisor. Throughout the admissions process, I encountered many difficulties and sleepless nights. But when I worked with my personal advisor from CollegeAdvisor, I enjoyed it. My advisor was always so calm and so professional whenever emergencies happened and when I was freaking out. I would confidently argue that I had the best advisor! I am beyond grateful have had a successful application cycle and to have received admission to so many great schools. I owe a lot of credit to my advisor and the whole CollegeAdvisor community. I cannot wait to go to Trinity College Dublin in Ireland and Columbia University to make my dream of becoming the next justice Ginsburg true!
