Graduate School Admissions Consulting

Bill and Melinda Gates Hall, Ithaca, United States.

Ivy Coach provides graduate school admissions consulting to students seeking admission to Ivy League and other highly selective graduate programs. Whether it’s through Skype, FaceTime, phone conversations, or email, we are able to work with students from across the United States and around the world.

Based upon the free 20-minute graduate school admissions consultation, in which we will answer any questions you might have about our service offerings, we will work with you to design an appropriate package of services. To receive a free 20-minute consultation, simply fill out the form that you’ll find here or after clicking on the orange button on our website. Some graduate school applicants come to us in need of assistance with the entire graduate school admissions process — from school selection to deciding which program to attend once having earned admission. And others just come to us for help with the Statement of Purpose, interview prep, application review, etc. At Ivy Coach, we can accommodate your needs for admissions assistance to any highly selective programs within the United States — be it law school, medical school, or a PhD program in art history. You name it.

One-Hour Evaluation

During this one-hour graduate school admissions consultation, we will offer advice and insight into how students can improve their odds of gaining admission to highly selective programs. In advance of the consultation, we request that students send us their college transcript, standardized test scores (e.g., GREs, GMATs, MCATs, or LSATs), CV / resume, and a preliminary list of graduate school programs that are under consideration. We will go through all of this information with the student during the evaluation, pointing out areas of strength and weakness and articulating how the student can better distinguish himself or herself in the admissions process. We will also help students select graduate school programs — be it law schools, medical schools, PhD programs, MBA programs, or other master’s programs.

Graduate School Application Assistance

Maybe you need help with one essay or maybe you need help with multiple complete applications. Our package will depend on your needs. The vast majority of graduate school applications submitted to the most selective grad school programs are stale and utterly cliche. Maybe an applicant’s Statement of Purpose for law school focuses on her desire to help people in need, to speak out for the underprivileged, to correct injustices. And that will put admissions officers at top law schools to sleep. Within seconds.

The essays of our students are anything but cliche. In fact, helping students craft powerful and compelling, unique essays is a big part of our secret sauce at Ivy Coach. It’s these students who admissions officers at our nation’s top law schools and med schools, art history programs and computer science programs want to root for. We help students find their narrative, their voice, so that their application stands out like a gem in a sea of terrible, stale essays, so that their resumes are more impressive, their short answers more on point. And, yes, a Statement of Purpose about wanting to be a doctor because you want to help people absolutely qualifies as cliche drivel. Our students don’t write cliche drivel. Just the opposite.
