Our range of Admissions Consulting packages enables you to select the number of hours that best meets your needs. A sample outline of the process (and approximate timings) can be found below:

Initial Meeting (1 hour)

Discuss goals, clarify which and how many schools you are applying to (five to eight is the recommended number), as well as your preferred area of study. Identify your strengths and achievements.

Plan and Edit Essays for Each Application (1-2 hours per essay)

It's important to understand how to best present yourself in a college application essay. Major US universities receive thousands of applications each year and the essay is part of what helps applicants stand out from the crowd. Many students already have great grades - we narrow in on your unique strengths that highlight you from the other applicants. The essay is the perfect opportunity to bring your talents and accomplishments to the foreground, being careful not to do so in a boastful or self-serving way.

Transcript and Recommendation Guidance (1 hour)

Most US universities require two to three letters of recommendation. It's important that your recommendation letters contain the most effective content (US recommendation letters tend to use more enthusiastic language, for example) and that they highlight your successes inside and outside of the classroom.

Reviewing Application Forms (1-2 hours)

Different schools have different application processes. We will review each school's admissions procedures with you and guide you through each application.

Discussing Financial Aid and Scholarships (1 hour per application)

While UK students cannot use UK financial aid to attend a US university, it is unlikely that you will have to pay the full advertised price listed on the college website. Our consultant will review options available to you, both in terms of financial aid and scholarships.
