Our Success

Our US students have received offers from all Ivy League schools, Stanford, MIT, UChicago, Duke, Johns Hopkins, Northwestern, Caltech, UCLA, UC Berkeley and every school in the US Top 50, while our UK applicants have been accepted to Oxford and Cambridge and all of the UK’s top universities from UCL to Imperial and King’s College London.

More specifically, many of our students have 2, 3, 4, 5 or sometimes 10 or more offers to choose from. In these cases their strategist will work with them on the ‘wonderful dilemma’, of having to decide which offer to accept, for example, what Ivy League may best for them, or should they chose MIT over Stanford.
