In an admissions world where 2400's and stellar letters of recommendation do not guarantee acceptance to a student's first choice school...IvyWise helped me set my best foot forward in the college process, for which I am eternally grateful.

In this day and age, when students are electronically submitting anywhere from 12 to 15 college applications, plus schoo--specific supplements, it's easy to make careless mistakes and difficult to stand out from the crowd. College admissions expert Dr. Katherine Cohen and the team of counselors at IvyWise, an internationally recognized college admissions counseling company, offer students an inside look at the process from the admissions side of the table, as well as some last-minute tips that can help make all the difference.
New York, NY (December 22, 2011) – With college application deadlines approaching quickly for many U.S. colleges and universities–some as early as December 31st 2011–for high school seniors across the country and around the world, the pressure is on.

New York, NY (April 29, 2011) — By May 1, college-bound students across the country and from around the globe will need to notify a specific U.S. college of their intent to attend this fall. While some students will be accepting admission at their top-choice school, still many others will be accepting admission to another school on their list. IvyWise, an internationally recognized college admissions counseling company, and ApplyWise.com, the first online interactive college admissions counseling program, share the following summary of the 2011 admissions landscape.
New York, NY (October 30, 2009) — The college application process can often be a smorgasbord of confusing acronyms, deadlines and restrictions for parents-many of whom may not have applied to college in more than 20 years-and their college-bound teenagers. What's the difference between applying "early action," "early decision," and "regular decision?' During which round should students apply? Does when they apply affect their chances of admission or their financial aid packages? Which schools have eliminated early decision altogether? With early application deadlines beginning November 1st and 15th, it's critical for families of college-bound teens to understand admissions speak.
"The college admissions process can be extremely overwhelming, especially for those who are not familiar with it. IvyWise guided me throughout the entire journey."
