Lauren Weston
Harvard University

I started working with CollegeAdvisor three weeks before the deadline and I hadn’t started writing any of my essays. I had watched a lot of YouTube videos about college essays, but most of them did nothing but scare me, because I thought that I could never write like that. Once I got an interview, I also received excellent interview preparation. I didn’t apply to any other schools, except for UCLA and UC Berkeley. I reused a lot of my essays for those applications. In the end, I got accepted to all of them! I could not have wished for better support during this very stressful time.

I worked with Pam and she completely saved my application! I’m extremely satisfied with my results and would definitely recommend college advisor to someone else. We worked on individual essays and she truly cared about my application. I’m so grateful to get accepted to Cornell and it wouldn’t have been without college advisor.

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.

CollegeAdvisor’s flexibility proved how much they really put their customers first. After speaking with the founder, I understood the personal story behind why CollegeAdvisor’s services are such a steal: incredible value at an affordable price! The college application process has now become one of the most valuable periods in my young life because the personal development and insight I gained are truly invaluable. My hearty thanks to my incredible advisor in shaping such a critical aspect of my journey and career.

CollegeAdvisor keeps you on task and their team really puts on an amazing effort to help students navigate the admissions process and get into the college of their dreams.

Grace Murphy
The University of Alabama

I can’t imagine going through the college application process without my advisor. She was so helpful and kind, she even offered to keep in touch and help with future projects. I highly recommend this program for anyone who wants an extra set of eyes to help with this difficult journey.

Great!

Ignacio Estrada

CollegeAdvisor was incredible. The way the advisors help you every step of the way with intuitive and precise techniques to better promote yourself as an academic candidate, is truly remarkable.

Ishan Baweja

In my experience, I gained a lot more with my advisor more than with my admission officer.

When I reached out to CollegeAdvisor, they supported me with their program and helped me through the signup step-by-step. I was matched with my mentor. She helped me realize my best fit and find my authentic voice through my passions, experiences and challenges. She encouraged me to weave these experiences into my essays which made them stand out. She went above and beyond to support me through the stressful time of college applications and I am so appreciative of how this program supported me into getting into some amazing schools.

Jan Marie Borromeo
Stony Brook University

CollegeAdvisor guided me and my family with a process that we were unfamiliar with. I felt comfortable asking questions and received advice that aided me every step of the way. With every session, I left with new information that allowed me to evaluate my school choices and essays. I also greatly relied on the webinars which were helpful. My overall experience was great!

Jennifer Lawrence
Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Gabe was absolutely wonderful as an advisor. He was very thorough with both grammatical and content edits in my essays, as well as very knowledgeable whenever I had questions about the process. I primarily needed CollegeAdvisor for assistance in crafting my essays and activity descriptions and didn’t really make use of any of the offered webinars/workshops; I also had my college list already picked out when I came to CollegeAdvisor, so I didn’t receive much help there either, but Gabe did help me do some research on schools that I was applying.

Jieshan Liu
University of California - Berkeley

My advisor has been dedicated to assisting me with all my needs. She’s very flexible time-wise and always gives honest advice about my essays. I enjoyed having conversations with her and discussing the multiple aspects of my college applications. I feel grateful for this opportunity and all the resources she has been sharing with me, including the College Panels and Zoom sessions which showed me how to approach writing distinctive essays.

Francesco Efrem Bonetti
Harvard University

When I started the application process as an international student, nobody around me knew what it consisted of. The time we had available was short and I immediately got along with Genevieve. I was able to portray the full picture of my personality and interests. The application process for colleges in the US is very specific and as an international student with no experience in the USA, getting advice from “insiders” was very helpful. What I loved about CollegeAdvisor is that I was always at the center of the creative process as the only one writing my application.

Esther Sharaby
University of Miami

Even with the least expensive plan, my advisor did everything possible to get me into one of my top choices and they succeeded!

Disha Gupta
University of Michigan

The advisor I was paired with was an absolute delight to work with and a godsend. She and the entire team was very willing to work around and with my tight schedule. She stuck with me until the very end, and her contributions to my applications were very much appreciated and needed.

Buse Balik

My experience with CollegeAdvisor was amazing. My advisor, Carolyn was the best. She helped me with everything about the application process and helped me keep everything organized. I can say it lifted a lot of weight off my shoulders because she was very good at guiding me through the application process.

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!

Ann Seo
University of Utah

My advisor, Uma, was super nice and really helped me discover myself through writing! She had really great ideas and edits as well.

Amira Cardenas
New York University

My overall experience with my advisor was great. As the first person in my family to apply to college, I wasn’t really sure what to do or how to start. I was really late on starting my applications but my advisor was always positive that I would have everything completed and submitted before the deadline. My college advisor was a huge help in me completing my applications on time. She not only helped me with my edits on my essays, but she also helped me stay positive even when I had my doubts about applying to certain universities. I really appreciate all of my college advisors help and I know I couldn’t have done it with her.
