For a quick second, let’s walk on a journey.
All too often, we come across students who are not able to get into the colleges of their dreams. We hear everything from “Only if I did better during that chemistry test back in 11th grade” to “I should have crammed an extra hour of SAT studying last month”. She’s been there. He’s been there. They’ve been there. We’ve all been there. But what if we told you that there was a way to increase your chances? What if we told you that colleges care more about your personal character than any 2 numbers with a decimal point between them or any 4 numbers that resemble the cost of your future meal plan? Would you believe it? Well today, we are asking you to believe us.
Some of the best advice we can give is that colleges are making an investment in you, just as must as you are making an investment in the college. As strange as it might sound, colleges would much rather take a chance on the student who has a 3.4 GPA and a 1680 SAT, but who is also the president of his/her school’s National Honor Society, the captain of the basketball team, the orientation leader for incoming 9th graders, the star of the school play, and the community service chairperson of his/her student government, than a student with a 3.7 GPA and a 1860 SAT, but has never partaken in an extracurricular activity in his/her life. Why? Because the perceived return on investment for the first student mentioned is much higher than the investment for the second student. While the second student may increase the school’s overall GPA by a few hundredths of a point, based on their application, the first student may go on to create clubs & organizations, join an intramural team, lead the student association, or even become a school ambassador (which will ultimately bring more students to the campus!). Don’t you think that colleges would favor that return much more?
Now, I bet you’re asking how you let schools know about the person you are. Well, this is where we can help you.

Through creative and captivating writing, we aim to make sure that the college can nearly personally identify with you without ever meeting you.
