12/17 Update: 100% of Ivy Coach’s students who completed application packages with us and applied Early Decision / Early Action earned admission to their top choice school this year. With a perfect sweep of the Ivy League — including Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Dartmouth, Columbia, Brown, UPenn, and Cornell — in addition to perfect sweeps of highly selective universities like Stanford, Duke, MIT, etc., what a year it was for our students! And, no, we couldn’t say it if it weren’t true. After all, our parents and students read our blog.
Original Post: It is shaping up to be quite the year for Ivy Coach’s students. Thus far, among the highly selective universities that have released decisions — including Harvard University, Princeton University, Brown University, Columbia University, Dartmouth College, Cornell University, Stanford University, and Duke University — each and every one of Ivy Coach’s Early Decision / Early Action applicants who worked with us on an application package have earned admission. That’s right. We were perfect at Harvard. We were perfect at Princeton. We were perfect at Columbia. We were perfect at Dartmouth. We were perfect at Brown. We were perfect at Cornell. We were perfect at Stanford. We were perfect at Duke. And we were perfect at all other highly selective schools to which our students applied that have reported thus far as well, including Tufts, Williams, Amherst, Pomona, and Emory.
Ivy Coach’s Perfect Sweep at Harvard, Princeton, Columbia, Dartmouth, Brown, Cornell, Stanford, and Duke — with Yale and UPenn Decisions Not Yet Out
Lots of private college counseling companies like to tout that such and such percentage of their students earned admission to their dream schools. 90%, 91%, you get the idea. And we keep statistics too about the percentage of our students who earn admission to their dream schools. They’re at the bottom of our website. But, ultimately, how can one verify these statistics? They can’t. These are private companies — the data is not for public consumption.
But unlike our competitors, we can actually prove that our students earned admission to their dream schools. Because our students — and their parents — read our blog. If one of our students who completed an application package with us didn’t, as an example, earn admission to Harvard, Columbia, Princeton, Brown, Dartmouth, Cornell, or Duke today or Stanford last Friday, they’d call us out. We’d live in fear. But the fact is we can write that every one of our students earned admission to each and every Ivy League school that has thus far released decisions — in addition to other elite universities like Stanford and Duke. We can say it because it’s true. Now go on the websites of other private college counseling companies. See if they do that. Or do they just lead with an empty statistic? You’ll see.
Criticize Ivy Coach for our fees. Criticize us for telling it like it is when we say things that are unpopular for the times. But you can’t criticize our results — not after we just wrapped up calls with elated parents and students who achieved their dreams today. Our results speak for themselves. And, yes, we can brag. Because we’re a business. We’re not applying to college.
If you were not an Ivy Coach student and you were recently deferred or denied by a highly selective college, we can still help turn things around for the Regular Decision round. Unlike many other private college consulting companies, we’re free. We have nothing to do tomorrow morning but twiddle our thumbs — because our students got in. So fill out our free consult form today. Indicate whether you were deferred or denied and we’ll be in touch within the day.
