Kalyani Valiyaveettil
Columbia University

CollegeAdvisor’s tremendous resources and committed advisors helped make the application process stress-free. I was able to customize the service and create an 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.

Liyuan Zhang

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. I’ve actively recommended CollegeAdvisor to juniors in my high school.

Jonathan Wu
University of Pennsylvania

My advisor (Phillip) was very responsive and always gave me great tips about my essays and application strategies. Moreover, the access to the whole advisor network was a game changer, as I was able to talk to an alumni of my dream school, University of Pennsylvania, which I believe was a big factor of my acceptance to the school during the regular decision round!

Avery Medina

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 clarifying ideas in my writing. My college application experience would have been much tougher had it not been for CollegeAdvisor. I definitely recommend!
