Houston College Consulting
Houston Admissions Services
Houston! Home of the Space Center, mouth-watering barbecues, and impressive high schools like St. John’s School, Episcopal High School, and others. This vibrant city knows a thing or two about reaching for the stars, both literally and figuratively.
But when it comes to the mission of getting into a top-tier college, it can feel a bit like navigating a zero-gravity environment – disorienting and challenging, with high stakes at every turn. Enter IvySummit, your trusted mission control in the journey to college success.
At IvySummit, we’ve spent over two decades guiding students towards their dream colleges. We know the landscape, understand the terrain, and have weathered the changing climates of college admissions year after year.
Our strategy is straightforward: we provide the guidance, resources, and mentorship you need to stand out in a crowded field of applicants. We work with you to carve out your unique academic and extracurricular narrative, helping you showcase the very best version of yourself to the colleges of your choice.
Creating a list of potential colleges is a critical step in the application process. But with thousands of institutions out there, the task can feel daunting. That’s where IvySummit steps in.
We help you build a balanced college list that aligns with your academic abilities, personal interests, and long-term goals. We ensure you have a variety of colleges on your list, from ‘reach’ and ‘target’ schools to ‘safety’ ones. This way, we increase the chances of your success while making sure you’d be happy and thrive at any of the schools you’re applying to.
There’s no getting around it: your application essays are pivotal in your quest for admission. They offer colleges a window into who you are, what you care about, and how you see the world. In Houston, where the competition is intense, crafting a standout essay is key.
At IvySummit, we take a step-by-step approach to essay execution. We start by helping you brainstorm ideas that highlight your experiences and perspective. Then, we guide you through the writing process, ensuring your narrative is engaging, authentic, and speaks to the prompt effectively.
But we don’t stop there. Our team assists with multiple rounds of edits to refine your language, structure, and tone. We help you polish your essay until it shines brighter than a Texas star, so when admission officers read your story, they are compelled to know more about you.
Area of Excellence
It’s important for students to shine in a specific Area of Excellence. This means identifying, cultivating, and showcasing a talent or interest that sets you apart from your peers.
At IvySummit, we firmly believe that it’s not about being good at everything; it’s about being outstanding in something. We help you identify and develop this Area of Excellence, be it academic, artistic, athletic, or altruistic, and we guide you on how to showcase it effectively in your application.
We help you create a compelling narrative that highlights your unique strengths and passions, making you more than just grades and scores to admissions officers.
Extra-curricular activities play an invaluable role in every college application. They provide a glimpse into your passions, your talents, and your character – traits that go beyond the scope of academics. In a city like Houston, opportunities to engage in diverse activities are boundless.
At IvySummit, we understand that the right extracurriculars aren’t just resume fillers; they’re an integral part of your personal story. That’s why we don’t simply advise you to sign up for every club and sport available. Instead, we help you strategically select and engage in activities that align with your interests and ambitions, creating a coherent, compelling picture of who you are and what you can bring to a college campus.
