Below, you’ll discover a comprehensive insight into how IvySummit‘s hourly consulting can help you breathe life into your dreams of attending your dream university.

1. University Selection

As a cherished member of IvySummit‘s personalized hourly consultancy program, your dedicated Ivy League Consultant will be your guiding light in curating a handcrafted list of universities to apply to. This list will be tailored meticulously to your unique profile and aspirations. Our Ivy League Consultant will take a holistic approach, considering a multitude of factors. This includes your academic journey, including your grades and test scores. They’ll pinpoint institutions that align perfectly with your academic achievements, as well as those that might be a tad more selective, challenging you to aim higher.

2. SAT & ACT Test Preperation

Crafted by distinguished Harvard alumni, PhDs, and accomplished educators hailing from around the globe, IvySummit‘s hourly SAT/ACT test preparation courses hold the wisdom of years gone by. Our courses are designed to not only enhance your study experience but also to help you achieve your academic goals. In addition, IvySummit‘s tutorials, readily accessible to you, open the doors to a rich array of AP courses across diverse disciplines. These courses allow you to showcase your academic prowess and demonstrate your passion in the areas that hold a special place in your heart.

3. Extracurricular Mentoring

Crafting a compelling college application is a journey that requires a deeply personal and comprehensive extracurricular and leadership (ECL) profile. This profile should shine a light on your unique intellectual and personal passions, setting you apart from the crowd. At IvySummit, our hourly ECL mentorship program is rooted in six fundamental pillars, guiding you on this transformative path:

  1. Discover and Nurture Your Distinct Interests: Unearth and cultivate the passions that make you who you are, letting your individuality shine through.
  2. Brainstorm and Solidify Your Project Vision: Collaborate and brainstorm, refining your project plan until it’s a reflection of your true self.
  3. Set Clear Timelines and Goals: Define the road ahead with clear objectives and timelines, ensuring you stay on track.
  4. Build a Sturdy Project Framework: Establish a solid foundation for your project, giving it the structure it needs to flourish.
  5. Forge Partnerships and Secure Funding: Where relevant, seek out partners or secure the resources needed to make your vision a reality.
  6. Promote and Amplify Your Project: Share your project with the world, amplifying its impact and leaving a mark on your chosen field.

This extensive process will not only strengthen your college application but also allow your unique brilliance to shine through.

4. Personal Statement & Supplemental Essay Support

The potency of your U.S. university application hinges on the narratives woven into your personal statement and supplemental essays. This is why IvySummit takes a personalized approach by pairing each student with an essay mentor, a distinguished alumnus of a top-tier institution. These mentors possess a profound understanding of the intricate admission process. Our essay mentors, operating on an hourly basis, have a knack for identifying the qualities that admission officers treasure in an applicant. They will skillfully lead you on a journey to craft an exceptional essay that illuminates your individual strengths and experiences, painting a vivid picture of who you are.

5. Interview Preparation

In the realm of U.S. university admissions, the alumni interview stands as a pivotal juncture that can either propel or hinder your application. Therefore, meticulous preparation for this final stage is paramount. At IvySummit, our team of seasoned interview mentors is dedicated to equipping you for success. With a comprehensive understanding of the intricacies of the interview process, our mentors will walk you through a range of potential hourly interview scenarios. They will also engage in mock interviews, providing you with the invaluable opportunity to shine within the constraints of limited time. Beyond adeptly responding to the interviewer’s questions, our mentors will impart the art of posing thoughtful and institution-specific queries. These questions will not only exhibit your profound knowledge but also convey your genuine enthusiasm for the university. This is the key to making a lasting impression during this crucial stage of the application journey.

6. Teacher Recommendations

While your academic transcripts portray a numerical summary of your scholastic journey, the true essence of your teacher recommendations lies in their remarkable ability to breathe life into those grades. These letters of recommendation are a cornerstone in the college application process, wielding the power to provide a unique and vibrant portrait of you. They unveil facets of your character and personality that are beyond the scope of your own writing and test scores. In essence, they present you in your truest form. Furthermore, these recommendations hold the potential to eloquently speak to your capacity to make significant contributions to your chosen universities. They are evidence to the kind of person being advocated for—a multifaceted individual filled with promise and potential. At IvySummit, our seasoned mentors are dedicated to assisting you in the delicate process of selecting teachers who can offer insightful recommendations. Beyond this, we will extend our guidance to your teachers, helping them format personalized letters that serve as a canvas to paint a vivid picture of your exceptional character, leadership qualities, intellectual curiosity, creativity, and other intrinsic attributes. These letters of recommendation become a powerful complement to your entire application package, magnifying and exemplifying the qualities you have already revealed through other components of your application. Our mission is to ensure that every facet of your application stands out, leaving the most indelible impression on the discerning eyes of admissions officers.
