Provide your child with personalized support in the college process
How it Works
Consultation & Match
Schedule an initial consultation
All prospective clients are invited to schedule a complimentary 30-minute phone or video consultation. The goal of this conversation is two-fold: to provide you with advice on what you can be working on now – and for us to learn more about you, to better match you with your AcceptU counselor.
Figure out a plan of action
After selecting your counseling plan, your AcceptU counselor will schedule an introductory session and discuss a plan of action tailored to your needs, where you are in the admissions process and those areas where AcceptU can have the greatest impact.
Discuss pre-application planning
Your AcceptU counselor will advise you on your curriculum, academic interests, extracurricular and summer activity planning, standardized test strategy and college visits. Your counselor will also help you develop a balanced college list and formulate an application strategy.
Essay and Application
Write essays & complete application materials
Your AcceptU counselor will help you select appropriate essay prompts, brainstorm topics and ensure that every essay is polished. Your counselor will also assist you with selecting recommendation letter writers and developing and prioritizing your extracurricular activities list.
Submit and get accepted
Your AcceptU counselor will complete a final application review and prepare you for any interviews. Then, once the decisions are released, your counselor will help guide you to the best option for you, considering any scholarships as well as the best fit for your academic interests.
All AcceptU counselors are former admissions officers from highly selective colleges
You will be matched with a counselor based on your schools of interest, academic focus, personality as well as counselor availability. We have nearly 60 counselors on our team, allowing us to find just the right fit for our students. Below, meet just a few.
AcceptU counselors have helped thousands of students get accepted to 300 colleges and universities, including all of the top 100 in various rankings. Here are a few of their stories.
My daughter’s AcceptU counselor was terrific. My husband and I applied to college 25 years ago, and we both attended very good schools but I doubt we could get in today! We didn’t know the first thing about college admissions, given how competitive it’s gotten.
Our daughter was only looking at top schools. Our AcceptU counselor was able to provide guidance on great schools that could also be “safety” schools for her. We had lots of questions and AcceptU always answered our emails in a very thoughtful, professional and helpful way.
We were thrilled with the results. Our daughter was admitted to five top colleges and even received merit-based scholarships at a couple. We spoke with an AcceptU financial aid expert in the fall of her senior year as well as in April to help us figure out where she should enroll.
The process, if you can believe it, was really great. It was initially stressful for me and my husband but our AcceptU counselor always had the right answers to our questions and provided sound advice. We have recommended AcceptU to three other family friends now and they’ve all had similarly positive experiences. It was a great investment in our daughter’s future.
The AcceptU counselor guided our daughter through every stage of the opaque and complex process of college admissions.
AcceptU helped her develop a realistic portfolio of colleges and ensured that she adhered to application deadlines. The AcceptU counselor was meticulous in reviewing essays, suggesting changes and rehearsing interviews over Skype.
AcceptU provided an objective and informed opinion of the statistical odds of admission and the counselor, as a former admissions director, provided us with a view from the other side of the table and gave realistic qualitative feedback.
A student who works with AcceptU is at a distinct advantage over the one who does not.
