IvyWise helps students get into the best-fit schools for them
At IvyWise, we help students identify and apply to colleges that fit them personally. How? By understanding the nuances of the process, what colleges are looking for, and how students can best position themselves to gain admission to their top-choice schools. It’s not just about having the right grades and test scores. It’s also about students exploring their interests and reaching their full potential inside and outside of the classroom. IvyWise offers a variety of admission counseling services personalized to fit each student’s needs.
Initial consultations are set up through myIvyWise portal, where families create a student profile by answering questions about the student’s history and goals and providing relevant documentation like transcripts, resumes, and more.
The Initial Consultation includes an in-depth pre-screen of your student’s profile, a 90-minute meeting, and a session report. Students also receive:
- Expert feedback based on his or her academic history
- A customized evaluation and detailed strategic action plan
- Recommendations for courses, extracurricular activities, summer experiences, internships, community service, and more
- A comprehensive standardized testing plan, if applicable
