Our Success Stories

1

“Apply Ivy’s experience with college applications was evident in the advice and aid I was given when writing my essays, as each of these was tailored to suit the individual character of each university, while also making sure that my personality shone through. Without their help, I am certain I could not have submitted such strong applications. I would staunchly and strongly recommend Apply Ivy’s services, as I am doubtful that I could have achieved what I had without their invaluable counsel and infectious enthusiasm!”

Accepted to Harvard, Stanford, University of Pennsylvania, and Cornell

“Apply Ivy is more than just a university admissions advising service. I would recommend every student, no matter how far away the application deadlines are, to go with Apply Ivy. They will develop you into the person you want to be. Getting into a “good-fit” university will come as well, but as a byproduct of your personal development as a whole. I started working with them in 10th grade, but honestly wished I started earlier (I feel as if my life was somewhat directionless before then). They helped me identify my interests (fitness, helping others, public speaking), and gave me guidance over the next few years to build up those interests, including starting a fitness club at my school where I helped others lose fat and gain confidence, delivering a TedX talk, and creating a fitness-based startup. These accomplishments helped me to develop as a person, build up my confidence, and were instrumental in helping me get into one of my top choices of colleges. As a current college student, I am still working on these interests and it is thanks to ApplyIvy that I discovered them!”

“Our son applied to US universities, and we decided it is worth the investment and work with a company that can assist him to reach his desired universities. Apply Ivy’s attention and dedication to his success were second to none. No effort was saved, numerous editing, changes, research and whatever was necessary to have the right essay and the right answers for the specific university. Our son applied to major in Dancing and Psychology, applications to dancing require, in most cases, video auditions, specific dancing CV and additional questions to be answered. This was done with a joy and with a full intention to make it successful and apply it in a way that will highlight our son’s skills and personality. Eventually he applied to 13 universities, he was accepted to seven! Most of them with scholarships and including some in the top 20. Eventually he chose to go to Duke where he was accepted to the Class of 2026. We are very proud of him and most thankful to Apply Ivy, such a high level of success would not be possible without Apply Ivy.”

“The first thing I did after receiving the Early Decision result from UPenn was to thank my Apply Ivy consultants for their invaluable advice and professional guidance which made my son’s application a successful one. Instead of telling my son what to do, they inspired him by raising a lot of questions and made it a perfect reflection for him to think back what were the most significant things that made him who he is today.”

“Apply Ivy’s preparation for interviews and essays has helped distinguish my daughter from the crowd in the boarding school application process. I was hesitant to hire an educational consultant initially, but their service has proven effective and helped relieve much stress and uncertainty in the process.”

“Apply Ivy did a great job helping my daughter through the boarding school application process. Throughout the application process, they worked closely with her on every aspect, really helping her to distinguish herself through extensive preparation for interviews and essays. Initially, I wasn’t sure if I needed the help of a consultant, but through the process, I realized that my daughter wouldn’t have been able to get into the schools without their help. They were also able to relieve a lot of the stress and uncertainty of the process. My daughter was accepted by all of her top choices of schools and she is now near the top of her class in boarding school.”

“I knew my son would like to attend boarding school in the US but I had no idea how to go about finding the right school for him. I am glad we had the support and assistance from Apply Ivy. Based on my son’s strengths and curriculum requirements, they were able to select schools that most suited him. We particularly found the interview preparation useful as Apply Ivy prepared my son in depth. My son was able to speak to School Admission Directors confidently; he received high praises from a few schools. The tremendous effort surely paid off, as my son was accepted to the school on top of his list and he is looking forward to the boarding school adventure in the US.”
