Our story

We start with the idea that the best admissions consultants and mentors are those who just went through the process themselves. These are people who actually live on the campuses and get to see all the people who were accepted on a daily basis. This allows for an intuitive understanding of understand the university’s culture and DNA. Combined with their recent firsthand experience, you have the building blocks for the ultimate consultant and mentor.

But not every college student is automatically qualified to be a uniquely good mentor. Indeed, you might ask, “Just because you got into Harvard, doesn’t mean you know how to get me into college.” So we hire only the best of the best. Our hiring standards are extremely selective. We screen consultants based on resume, looking for indications of strong passion and excellent interpersonal skills. They complete several interviews and mock sessions. Then, we require them to complete an intensive writing examination that over 80% of job applicants don’t pass. Some don’t even finish it. In total, only ~20% of consultants make it through the hiring funnel.
