As high school seniors across the US, and the world, await admission decisions for the class of 2021, it’s important to remember the focus of this process at the end of the day: the student. At IvyWise we have the honor of working with some amazing students, and they have some advice for other students just starting the college admissions process.

At IvyWise we work with a number of pro bono students every year, and many end up gaining admission to one or more of their top-choice colleges. These students are highly-motivated and already have an idea of what they’re looking for in the admissions process, but need some extra help achieving those goals.

Earlier this year, two of our pro bono students, Angelica and Caterina, were accepted early to their top choice colleges: the University of Pennsylvania and Columbia University, respectively. You can see their acceptance video below!



We caught up with IvyWise pro bono students Angelica and Caterina to learn more about their admissions journey and what it was like to work with IvyWise during this process. Check out their insight and college prep advice in the videos below!
