"The college application process was quite daunting to both me and my family in the beginning, as I am the oldest child. Ivy Guru broke down the entire process into manageable pieces that really boosted my confidence in myself. I was surprised by the level of care they put into my application, as I was only a small client, helping me take my personal statement to a level I would never have gotten to myself. I could easily tell that they were all experts who knew the entire process like the back of their hand."Ava FischerYale University, Class of 2024
"Coming into the application process, I was very lost. I knew what I had to do, but I, like many other applicants, was never taught how to write a compelling essay, how to hold your own in a college interview, how to present your extracurricular activities. Truth be told, I was expected to just attend a local state university. It seemed like the cheapest option. However, after my initial consultation, Ivy Guru broadened my perspective and allowed me to realize my potential. I was a lot stronger than I thought I was. My team was entirely dedicated to my success, never cutting corners while advising my application. Never in my wildest dreams would I imagine attending Harvard with a full-ride scholarship."Adam CheiseHarvard University, Class of 2023
"I just got back from Stanford parent’s weekend and wanted you to know that Jackson could not imagine attending another university. I have never seen him so animated and passionate about being in a new environment. The atmosphere, academics, and proximity to Silicon Valley are simply amazing. It feels like this is the right path for him, and we will never take this opportunity for granted. Thank you, Ivy Guru."Floyd StallerFather of Ethan Staller, Stanford Class of 2023
"When I first stumbled upon Ivy Guru, I thought they were exclusive to students applying to the Ivy League. During my first consultation, they helped me craft a balanced group of universities that were in my best interests. It was reassuring to know that my team was not overbearing on me applying to top schools that I was simply not interested in. I really felt listened to. My academic advisor was a Harvard Graduate who is one of the most humble people I have ever known. We grew really close during this process, and I know I’ll always be able to ask her for advice beyond my first day at Duke."Elizabeth BatesDuke University, Class of 2024
"Ivy Guru really helped me hone in on what I needed to write on my personal statement in order to fully express myself to the admission officers. My team knew the entire process from front to back, and a lot of them had been through it themselves. So to have people who understood what I was going through and help me reach my goals was incredible. Also, I cannot stress how vital the IvyGuru Roundtable was. Having a committee of former Directors of Admission at the schools I was applying to was a game changer. It’s as if my application was reviewed twice before they made a decision on whether to admit me."David WuUniversity of Pennsylvania, Class of 2024
"Ivy Guru turned my application which had interests all over the place into a cohesive package that had a strong focal point. I realized colleges are not looking for well-rounded students, but to compose an entire class that is well-rounded, with each student having one major strength. For me, that was music. My team helped me craft a touching personal statement around my musical background that I believe was the primary factor to my admissions to Princeton. All of the admissions consultants I worked with were simply amazing writers that could completely transform a bland essay into one that will stay on the top of the pile in the admissions office. Finally, compared to other college consulting services, I believe Ivy Guru has superior service without charging ridiculous rates. I’m glad I found Ivy Guru."Fernando PerezPrinceton University, Class of 2022
