Yonas says that CollegeAdvisor.com and his advisors helped him realize the power of telling your story - "In my personal statement, I told the admissions officers who I am and they saw the determination I have to achieve my goals. They saw the obstacles I've faced and how I've overcome those challenges. That's what CollegeAdvisor.com helped me realize about myself, and what the admissions officers in turn got to see about me."
Amara always dreamed of attending a top university, but no one in her family had ever attended a four year university. CollegeAdvisor.com helped guide Amara through the college application process, and she will be attending Northeastern in the fall as a Ujima Global Leader.
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!
I liked the efficient and effective meetings I had with my advisor. From our conversations, I felt my advisor really cared about getting me into my dream universities. I loved the personalized application strategy.
CollegeAdvisor.com's (formerly Bullseye Admissions) services were fantastic for fine-tuning my college essays. Each essay that CollegeAdvisor.com helped me on was an essay that I felt confident to send out to colleges.
My CollegeAdvisor.com (formerly Bullseye Admissions) advising team helped me tremendously in editing essays for clarity, voice, grammar, and more; figuring out where to apply for what admissions cycle (EA vs ED vs RD); building a scholarship list; and interview preparation. I loved CollegeAdvisor.com's personalized approach to college admissions preparation. I really connected with my advisor and felt like she was able to really help get my message across in essays without detracting from my voice at all.
