Long Island College Consulting

Long Island

Long Island Consulting Admissions Counselors: A Look at Our Approach

Welcome to Long Island, land of the endless beaches, vibrant summer scenes, and home to educational powerhouses like the Stony Brook School, The Ross School, and others. Each year, top students from Long Island toss their hat into the ring and compete for the limited spots at top universities. And when it’s time to trade the lighthouse views for college applications, the breezy, carefree vibes can take a bit of a hit.

Navigating the complexities of college applications alone can be confusing, exhausting, and complex. That’s where IvySummit comes in. We are here to make sure your journey is as peaceful as a leisurely stroll along the Hamptons’ coastline.

Long Island

Our Strategy

We’re an internationally recognized college consulting firm with a team of experienced professionals from top-tier universities. We have the knowledge, experience, and passion to help you succeed.

Over the years, we’ve helped thousands of students from across the globe – including those right here in Long Island – navigate the intricacies of the application process, from building standout college lists to crafting captivating essays. We’ve made it our mission to turn the potentially overwhelming process into an empowering journey of self-discovery.

Essay Execution

Writing a college application essay is more than just crafting words – it’s about narrating your unique story, showcasing your individuality beyond grades and test scores. It’s not always easy to pack years of experiences into a few hundred words.

At IvySummit, we’re experts in assisting with this task. Our seasoned essay advisors guide students to highlight their unique attributes, brainstorm effective topics, navigate the writing process, and polish the final piece while preserving authenticity.

An effective essay can turn the ordinary into extraordinary. We’re here to help you do just that, ensuring that your application leaves a lasting impression and finds you a college that values your unique identity.

Area of Excellence

This is a crucial aspect of your college application that helps set you apart from a sea of applicants. It represents a specific area where you have shown significant achievements, innovation, or leadership. This could be anything from a sport, music, arts, community service, entrepreneurship, scientific research – the list is as diverse as the students themselves.

At IvySummit, we understand the importance of defining and developing your area of excellence. Our expert advisors help students identify their strengths, create a plan to enhance these areas, and showcase them effectively in their applications.

Building a College List

Building a college list is more than just picking out Ivy League names or the top 10 schools from a magazine ranking. It’s about finding institutions that match your academic interests, career goals, personal preferences, and, of course, admission chances. A balanced college list should include a range of ‘safety,’ ‘match,’ and ‘reach’ schools. 

At IvySummit, we use our extensive knowledge of universities and their nuances to help students curate a personalized college list that fits their profile and ambitions. We guide students to look beyond the brand names and explore the unique opportunities each institution provides, ensuring the best possible fit for their future. 

Expanding Extracurriculars

Extracurriculars are the spice that brings the main dish—your academic record—to life. They give admissions officers a glimpse into who you are outside the classroom, showcasing your passions, skills, and potential to make a difference in their campus community.

However, expanding extracurriculars isn’t about padding your resume with a long list of activities. Colleges prefer to see depth over breadth. It’s better to commit to a few activities that you are genuinely passionate about and where you have made significant contributions, rather than have a resume scattered with minor involvements.

Remember, it’s not about doing it all—it’s about doing what you love and doing it well. Let IvySummit guide you on this journey to expanding and deepening your extracurricular engagements.
