New York City College Consulting

New York City

New York City Admissions Counseling

Ah, NYC! The city that never sleeps, where hot dog carts battle pretzel stands for sidewalk supremacy, and a stroll in Central Park could easily lead to a celebrity sighting. It’s also the home to esteemed institutes like Collegiate School, Brearley School, Trinity School, and others preparing students to take the world by storm, one bite of the Big Apple at a time.

Every year, top students laden with a stellar education and a NYC-grit, step up to bat in the big leagues – the ultra-competitive college application process. They apply to a range of schools, from the elite Ivy Leagues to renowned state universities, all with the aim of continuing their world-class education. The application process, however, can be overwhelming, intricate, and demanding. It requires not only academic prowess but also strategic planning, compelling storytelling, and a keen understanding of what each college seeks. Here’s where IvySummit comes in. We help you navigate this maze, adding method to the madness, and bringing your unique narrative to the forefront.

New York City

Our Strategy

Our team is composed of former admissions officers and alumni from top tier universities, who have been working with students from New York and around the world for the past two decades. They know what works, what doesn’t, and most importantly, how to tailor your application to enhance its impact. We individually work with our students on different parts of their application:

The College List

Building a college list can be complex and, at times, overwhelming. From Ivy League universities to state schools, liberal arts colleges, and everything in between, the possibilities are as diverse as the neighborhoods of Gotham. 

The IvySummit team, with their deep understanding of college admissions, helps you in this crucial process. We ensure that your college list is a strategic mix of reach, match, and safety schools, tailored to your academic profile, career goals, and personal preferences.

Intellectual Vitality

Intellectual vitality, a phrase often tossed around in college admissions, can feel like a hazy concept. In essence, it’s the spark of genuine curiosity and love for learning that extends beyond the classroom walls. It’s the student who loses track of time in the library or the internet because they’ve gone down a rabbit hole exploring a fascinating topic. It’s the student who asks thoughtful questions, pushing boundaries of traditional thought, because they’re genuinely interested in digging deeper.

We help students find opportunities that align with their genuine intellectual passions, guide them to articulate these experiences effectively in their applications, and teach them how to engage in thoughtful self-reflection. We believe that your intellectual journey should be as unique as you are, and we’re here to guide you on that path.

Brainstorming, Writing, and Editing Essays

The college essay is often considered the capstone of your application – the single opportunity to really let your voice be heard amidst a sea of grades, test scores, and extracurricular activities. At IvySummit, we guide students through each stage of this crucial process: brainstorming, writing, and editing. We know that each student has a unique story to tell. Our goal is to help you tell that story in the most compelling way possible, ensuring that your essays are not only well-written but also authentically represent who you are.


Extracurricular activities play a crucial role in college applications. They provide a window into who you are beyond the classroom: your passions, interests, leadership skills, and how you’ve made an impact in your community.

Often, students believe they need to fill their applications with a laundry list of extracurricular activities. However, what admission officers truly value is depth over breadth. They want to see dedication, leadership, and passion in fewer areas rather than a superficial involvement in numerous activities.

At IvySummit, we help students identify their interests and passions and build on those to create a portfolio of meaningful activities. We advise on how to take on leadership roles, initiate projects or start clubs that align with these interests, and most importantly, make a tangible impact.
