WHAT OUR STUDENTS AND PARENTS SAY...

"With nearly perfect grades and test scores, I was fixated on the Ivy League. My counselor encouraged me to explore a wider variety of school options and taught me how to create a better list. I'm so glad my Academic Angle counselor taught me how to value my own needs and wants above all else."
Ana

I'm a procrastinator, so the college process really freaked me out. Thankfully, my Academic Angle program broke things into small manageable steps. Academic Angle pushed me to try harder and reach higher than I ever thought possible, and as a result, I earned direct admission into a top-10 ranked finance program!"

The Academic Angle approach to college essay writing helped bring my personal statement to life, and my counselor kept me on track to finish my applications well before any deadlines.
