Parents and students often tell us that we have been instrumental in the process. While we know that students get themselves into college, we’re glad our clients see value in providing a transformational college planning process.
He knew the ins and outs of the Common Application, and he helped me a lot in presenting myself to colleges in the most appealing way possible. I was accepted to my first choice school, Dartmouth, in the early decision round and I could not be happier!
I used to think that the few parents who were hiring admissions consultants were the ultimate in helicopter parents. Working with you really changed my opinion about the value of good counseling and good advice. I realize now how flat-out difficult the process really is.
Not only did I get into my first choice college, I also have stumbled upon the amazing opportunity to experience a country I've always wanted to see. Because of you, all of my big dreams are coming true!
I can't believe I leave in a week!! I wanted to thank you again for all your support and guidance on my college journey. I am so looking forward to the change, as I know it will be a good one. Thanks again! P.S.: You are still the coolest NERD!
I wanted to thank you for everything you did for our daughter and for Rob and me. To say we were lost is an understatement. You gave us such a wonderful gift--hope.
Defining College Admissions Success
At Great College Advice, we define college admissions success in a variety of ways. But the most important measure of our college planning success is the happiness and satisfaction of our students and families. We are grateful that so many of our students and parents have agreed to write and record testimonials for us.
Results are important, however, and we are happy that over the past 3 years, 97% of our students have been accepted to one of their top three college choices.
We are also proud that our students aiming for the most selective colleges and universities win acceptance. Our Ivy League success rates are 3 to 10 times greater with our help than the general acceptance rates. (Note that the Ivy League includes Harvard , Princeton, Yale, Columbia, Dartmouth, Cornell, Brown, and the University of Pennsylvania).
However, our real goal is to deliver a transformative college planning process with long term effects. We are never more gratified than when our students and families share with us how much they have learned through the process–about higher education, about the world, and about themselves.
It’s not just about college admissions success. It’s preparation for life-long success.
