College & University Admission
Students and their parents don’t want to “settle” when it comes to college. They have high hopes and high expectations. Our proprietary frameworks and customized strategies help our clients to find and capitalize on their uniqueness, and align it with the selection criteria at their targeted schools.
Each student is thoughtfully matched with a member of our college admissions consulting team. These advisors are former admissions officers, alumni interviewers and veteran admissions consultants from the world’s leading colleges and universities. We keep parents apprised about campaign progress on a regular basis and respond to their questions, typically within 24 hours. In the best interest of the student, the majority of communication is directly between the student and the consultant.

Our clients can choose among multiple options based on their needs, priorities and budget:
1-on-1 Comprehensive Consultation
Working directly with the student, our Consultant personalizes the campaign at every step to ensure complete understanding and top quality. We touch upon each element of the process, working at the client’s pace, to optimize his or her candidacy and produce stellar applications with maximum efficiency and minimum stress.
Small Group Consultation (3-5 students)
For students with budget constraints we offer a streamlined option that addresses each of the major elements of the admissions campaign, working productively in small groups. There is also some 1-on-1 consultation with each client on those aspects where that interaction is more effective and appropriate.
If a student’s admissions campaign is already underway, and he or she needs guidance or support on a specific element, ArchAdmissions designs an engagement for that purpose. In this manner, the client pays for and receives only the specific service that is his or her priority.
