What we do - US Admissions

Reach for your best

Don’t settle for best-fit; stretch yourself into the best-possible university with Crimson.

Why Crimson US Admissions Consulting?

Crimson is the most awarded admissions consultancy in the world and has helped students carve a path into the best US universities, including the Ivy League, in the face of intense competition.

If you want access to Harvard, Yale, Stanford and other top US universities, do not settle for less. Work with our global network of strategists, mentors, alumni and students, who can give your application the care and expertise it needs to get noticed.

Connect to our powerful technology platforms, which give you access to the brightest minds in the world and give you transparency over your learning package.

Crimson succeeds when our students succeed - so we will empower you to be the best version of yourself, and reach for your best-possible college.

Why do you need a Crimson application strategy?

Each year, hundreds of thousands of students compete for places at the best US universities. Crimson’s Strategy Consultants develop bespoke programs for each of our students, which maximise their strengths and builds them the strongest profile possible. This allows students to reach for universities that would otherwise be closed to them.

Every year, we see students fail to achieve their ambition because of a lack of strategy. If you're truly committed, an application strategy is essential to your chances of success.

What is a good ACT score?

Competition for places at top universities is getting fiercer with each passing year. One-size-fits-all solutions are no longer viable, rather students need personalised roadmaps to success.

This is what Crimson provides: clear strategy, a team matched to a students needs and transparency over the learning package.

These people empower Crimson students to go the extra mile and give them the clarity they need to navigate the complex admissions process.

How does technology improve your chances?

Typically, geography restricts the type of tutors and mentors a student can access. Crimson destroys this barrier with the incredible Crimson App.

This platform allows students to connect with the world’s finest minds without restriction.

Instead of working with your city’s best tutor, you work with the world’s best tutor.

Accordingly, technology removes the obstacles that limit all Crimson students’ potential and helps them elevate their profiles to an exciting new level.
