Students on CollegeAdvisor’s admissions platform
Data-Driven Expertise from U.S. News
At CollegeAdvisor, we’re proud to be a part of the U.S. News family. We work directly with our colleagues at U.S. News to provide students the resources they need at every stage of the college admissions process.
Our free web portal at app.collegeadvisor.com is powered by U.S. News’ comprehensive data on schools across the country. That means that students will always have access to everything they need to know about the nation’s top schools, including information about tuition, acceptance rates, top programs, enrollment, and more.
Beyond our web portal, we’re constantly working alongside U.S. News to find new ways to integrate the expertise of both companies.
No other college advising company has direct access to the trusted, respected data, journalism and advice from U.S. News, and we’re committed to using it to help your family understand every aspect of the college search.
In addition to the nearly 40 years of college ranking and school data from U.S. News, we’re proud to have a network of over 300 Admissions Experts and former Admissions Officers. They’ve been inside the admissions offices at top schools like Stanford, Georgetown, and USC—and they know what it takes to stand out.
Our broad network also ensures that CollegeAdvisor students always have the support they need. No matter what questions your family has about the college admissions process, our team will have the answers.
How we work
At CollegeAdvisor.com, we understand that every student is different. That’s why we work with each family to build a personalized college application strategy tailored to their needs.
We match every student with their own personalized advising team, including 1-2 of our Admissions Experts and former Admissions Officers. Through one-on-one meetings over video chat, our experts work directly with each student to help them build their extracurricular profile, create a college list, draft their essays, and more.
Our students also have access to additional resources through the broader CollegeAdvisor network. This includes our Essay Review Team, Interview Prep Team, and more. Our students can also arrange for an “Application Dress Rehearsal,” where our Admissions Officers will read their complete application and offer feedback designed to mirror the holistic review process.
Beyond our advising services, we provide a free web platform where students can organize, track, and strengthen their college applications. Our platform helps students approach every aspect of the college search, from building a college list to finalizing their applications.
On our databases, students can access comprehensive information on every top school in the country. Our advising services also integrate seamlessly with our web portal—advisors can use the portal to view their students’ college lists, track their progress, schedule meetings, and more.
Additionally, our web portal allows students to find new ways to bolster their college applications. Using our extracurricular database, students can view and apply to over 1,000 opportunities, from summer internships to volunteer roles.
CollegeAdvisor.com believes that every student deserves to achieve their college goals.
Each year, the CollegeAdvisor Scholars Program provides free, comprehensive college advising to 80+ high-achieving students with demonstrated financial need. To learn more about our Scholars Program, click here.
