Jesper Ke
Nice to meet you! Growing up in a Midwestern town of 10,000 people and not having any national awards in high school, I’ve been in a position where I felt like I couldn’t stand out in my college application. Despite this, I was able to receive full-tuition merit scholarships from University of Michigan and Vanderbilt University, in addition to an acceptance from Harvard. My experience showed me that how you craft your personal narrative in applications is key to success. I’d love to draw on my experience helping students gain acceptance to schools like University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, University of Michigan-Ann Arbor, Swarthmore, Wellesley and more to help you craft your personal story and stand out. And as an incoming medical student, I’m also happy to talk to you about what it’s like to be a pre-medical student should that interest you!

Jyoti Rani
University of California – Berkeley

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.

Slade Natale
University of California – Irvine

First off, my experience was very straighforward and smooth. The price is affordable especially considering the amount of work and time that you receive, not to mention the benefits provided by each plan. There are frequent check ins so you can review the work accomplished you have accomplished and my advisor would be on top of planning next steps for me. When writing my college essays, my advisor did not do the work for me but rather helped guide me to success. I would highly recommend all students applying to college use this recourse.

Victoria Richard
Rutgers University- New Brunswick

I had a wonderful experience with CollegeAdvisor. My advisor worked many hours with me and did a great job helping and supporting me through the whole application process; this included everything from the essays, to the interviews, and finally the decision process as well.

Sam Schulman
Vanderbilt University

CollegeAdvisor ensured that the quality of essays, and the timing in which I submitted, were optimized. The results speak for themselves through my acceptance to my first choice school and endless stories of those same outcomes.

He kept me on track even when I was unmotivated and providing more than just college advice. Armaan has helped me grow as a person. CollegeAdvisor as an institution provides students with the best pairings of advisors who go beyond textbook definitions to invoke your true sense and self into your applications. I very much enjoyed this experience and would recommend it to anyone.

I felt very supported and the feedback I received made a huge difference. The system of weekly meetings we had in place helped me succeed during the college process. Thank you Clay and CollegeAdvisor!
