My experience with CollegeAdvisor was amazing. As an international student balancing various application cycles, I entered the US cycle quite late. However, when I reached out to CollegeAdvisor they were still willing to support me with their program and helped through everything step by step. They were very accessible, reliable and helpful. Then I was matched with my mentor. I could not have had a more dedicated, inspiring and talented person and mentor to help coach me through my essays. She helped me realise my best fit schools and find my authentic voice through my passions, experiences and challenges. She encouraged me to weave them together through my essays which made them stand out. She went above and beyond to support me through the stressful time and I am so appreciative of how this program supported me into getting into some amazing schools. I can't believe it! I want to thank the whole CollegeAdvisor Team for helping students like me have a chance at actualising their academic potential at inspiring institutions.

Working with CollegeAdvisor was amazing. As an international student who was not very familiar with the American university system, having the advising team made me feel confident in my applications and in the essays I submitted. They helped me put my best self forward, both on paper and with my interviews. My advisor was my cheerleader when I needed it the most, and she knew when to push me and when to let me rest. Lastly, a distinctive feature of CollegeAdvisor is the ability to chat with students who attend the universities I wanted to apply to. They helped me with things like motivation when hearing about how amazing their school was and how great certain classes are. They also talked with me about other aspects of college applications such as ideas for my school specific essays. I believe knowledge is power, and with CollegeAdvisor I always felt that I was encouraged - as it was so available and therefore easy - to research and learn about schools and the logic behind admissions. And at the end of the day, it worked! I got into my top choice school!

I feel that getting one-on-one advising really sealed my application together. As a student who comes from a disadvantaged community, combined with the fact that I had no family members who attended a US college, I was lost in the writing process. Before getting an advisor, I never really knew the "hidden rules" that applicants should try and follow like having a theme with your essays, or how to write in the college essay style writing. After months of Zoom sessions, I feel that my advisor really helped me amplify my voice through the essays in an intelligent, yet personable way.

My experience with CollegeAdvisor was excellent. My advisor, Carolyn, was always available for help and kept me on track with a well planned out timeline. She helped me refine my essay ideas and was fantastic when it came to editing and helping me clarify my ideas through my writing. My college application experience would have been much tougher had it not been for CollegeAdvisor. I definitely recommend!

CollegeAdvisor.com is a phenomenal network of diligent individuals who have gone through the college application process and are willing to facilitate the process for high schoolers. I was paired with an amazing advisor, Rouhin Ghosh, who helped me with my essays and aided my planning process for my college applications. He made me appreciate the value of CollegeAdvisor, and I would definitely recommend them to any student looking to bolster their college admission chances.

CollegeAdvisor's tremendous resources and committed advisors helped make the application process stress-free. I was able to customize the service and create the environment in which I work best. Through hours of essay editing, not only did I grow as a writer but I became more self-aware, learning the value of my experiences. As a look back, I am proud of all the work my advisor, Zoe, and I were able to accomplish together.
