Chattanooga College Consulting


Chattanooga Consulting Services: An Overview

Hello, Chattanooga! The land of the Scenic City where the views are as breathtaking as debates at their top schools: McCallie School, Baylor, or Girls Preparatory School

Chattanoogans are no strangers to the rigorous expectations of high-quality education. But the college application process? That’s a whole new ball game that can feel as challenging as climbing Lookout Mountain without a map!

At IvySummit, we’re here to toss you a lifeline. We specialize in turning the daunting cliff face of college applications into a manageable journey and we’ve been successfully doing it for over 20 years now.


Our Strategy

Our dedicated team of counselors, which include ex-admission officers and graduates of top-tier universities, brings a unique perspective that combines in-depth knowledge of the application process with an understanding of what elite colleges are looking for.

Our strategic approach includes providing guidance on how to select the best schools for you, building out your extracurricular activities to highlight your passions and strengths, and perfecting your essays to ensure that they resonate with admissions officers. We also help students navigate the intricacies of application timelines, helping them stay organized and on track.

Essay Execution

Writing a compelling college essay is no small feat. It requires a keen understanding of who you are, what your experiences have been, and how to translate that into a narrative that grabs an admissions officer’s attention.

At IvySummit, we understand the art and science behind this process. We know that a great essay isn’t just about perfect grammar and eloquent prose, it’s about telling your story in a way that highlights your unique perspectives, experiences, and ambitions.

We help bring out your individual voice, showcasing your intellectual curiosity, character, and potential to the colleges you’re applying to.

Guiding a Timeline

Planning your college application process is a process that requires careful consideration and detailed organization. The road to your dream college doesn’t have to be chaotic, and that’s where we step in.

At IvySummit, we provide students with a comprehensive timeline to navigate the various stages of the college application process. We break down the journey into manageable steps, ensuring that you stay on top of every task, from studying for standardized tests to finalizing your college list, writing essays, and preparing for interviews.

Building a College List

Choosing the right colleges to apply to can be a daunting task, given the sheer number of excellent institutions out there. It’s not just about selecting colleges based on their prestige or rankings. It’s about finding the schools that align with your goals, interests, and what you want from your college experience. This is why creating a tailored college list is so crucial.

At IvySummit, we provide personalized guidance in curating a college list that matches your aspirations, academic prowess, and personal fit. We use a holistic approach, considering factors like campus culture, academic programs, location, extracurricular opportunities, and financial aspects.

Intellectual Vitality

Intellectual vitality is a critical aspect of the college application process that colleges, particularly Ivy League and top-tier ones, deeply value. It’s not just about academic excellence, but an innate curiosity, a zest for knowledge, and a passion for intellectual pursuits outside of the classroom.

At IvySummit, we emphasize helping our students express this vitality through their applications. It’s about articulating how you engage with ideas, how you stretch your thinking beyond the curriculum, and how you pursue knowledge in your daily life. It could be shown through initiating research projects, participating in intellectual clubs, or even through your interactions within your community.
