About IvyWise

The IvyWise Team

IvyWise brings together an elite team of expert admissions counselors, tutors, researchers, and concierge-level client relations managers to provide unparalleled counseling, tutoring, and research services.

College Admissions Counselors

Our Experience Speaks for Itself

IvyWise’s team of expert college counselors are all former Deans and Directors of admission with over 300 years of collective experience in admissions at schools like Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Columbia, Stanford, MIT, and NYU, to name a few, as well as close to 100 years of experience in college guidance roles at top independent and private schools. Every member of our expert team has evaluated thousands of college applications and sat in committee – making tough decisions in the rooms where it all happens. They know how applications will be read and what it takes to stand out.

College Counselor Distinction

Even within our over 300 years of collective experience in admissions, we have made certain distinctions that align with the depth and breadth of experience each college admissions consultant brings to our team. While every member of our expert team has at least three years of direct experience serving as a Dean and/or Director of undergraduate admissions at a highly-selective US college or university, a Master designation indicates a counselor has an even more extensive background in admissions, college counseling, and/or tenure with IvyWise. Premier counselors are the most sought-after and the most seasoned, with decades of experience evaluating applications and counseling students.
