Ivy League

The strength of a college application is built long before a student’s senior year of high school. The classes, extracurricular activities, internship experiences, and personal interests of a particular student from his or her four years in high school must blend together to paint a genuine, compelling story that student’s intelligence, passion, and future potential.

Ivy Dream consultants can work with you to develop this intricate story and optimize your candidacy for the best colleges and universities. You will have a team dedicated to strategizing and planning your path to success. You can brainstorm with us to identify the courses, extracurriculars, and internship experiences that cater to your interests and ambitions.

Ivy Dream Approach

Ivy Dream provides comprehensive consulting to students seeking admission to highly selective universities. We work with students from all over the world via FaceTime, phone calls, emails, or texts.

Every student that works with Ivy Dream will be matched with a particular consultant, according to his or her interests and strengths. That consultant will be your mentor, knowledgeable guide, and dependable supporter. ​​

Through bimonthly communications with you, your consultant will get to know you well, so that he or she can best advise you on what paths to pursue.

Your consultant will further communicate with Ivy Dream's Leadership Team to ensure that the best strategies are being applied to build your admission candidacy.

The Leadership Team will periodically correspond with the student, to offer a big-picture perspective on how far you've progressed, and provide direction on where to aim next.
