Excellent... just excellent. CollegeVine was worth it just for the scholarships (it pays back and then some), not even mentioning the help for colleges. A+."

    Yens K.
    University of Chicago, Class of 2021

    “At the start of the admissions process, I was applying to 17 colleges. But CollegeVine helped me understand where I would really like to spend the next 4 years. I am grateful for the opportunity, and I'm very excited for the next chapter of my life!"

    Raghav B.
    Nova Southeastern, Class of 2021

    “To be honest, growing up in NJ, I didn't even know Nova Southeastern was an option. People in my neighborhood apply to the same old schools because of rankings. I thank CollegeVine for helping me get accepted to an awesome place that I'm actually SO pumped to attend!"

See what our families have to say about their CollegeVine experience.

Tanya G.
Proud CollegeVine Parent

"I cannot say enough about CollegeVine and how helpful they were to my son and our family. They removed our confusion and feelings of being overwhelmed. I have to say that the process respected our son’s autonomy, probably more than we, as parents, would have been able to do. Our son looked forward to his scheduled appointments, which kept him on track and increased his motivation and confidence. This also set our minds at ease as parents."

Anna P.
Student, University of Pennsylvania

"Thank you so much to CollegeVine for helping me earn admission to my dream school! After I was partnered up with my apps consultant, it did not take me long to notice that he was extremely dedicated to my success. He had gone through the same process and understood exactly what I needed. The greatest help CollegeVine gave me was in writing my essays; my consultant had a sharp eye, always pinpointing exactly what I needed to change and edit. His feedback truly made all the difference."

Ben H.
Proud CollegeVine Student

"Although I signed up for essay editing only for CollegeVine at first, the company has helped me in so many other ways, such as rediscovering important moments in my life and helping me realize the small experiences that have shaped who I am."

Will E.
Rutgers University, Scholarship Recipient

"The personalized attention offered by CollegeVine is incomparable to any other service out there. This service’s advantage lies in their specialists being able to get to know you better. The specialists are extremely qualified to assist with this process and their ability to relate to current students is invaluable."

Common questions about our results

Sure thing! We’re passionate about and experienced in helping families navigate the admissions process in general. So whether you’re attempting to get accepted to a top school, trying to make college more affordable, or simply trying to navigate this complicated process more smoothly, we’re here to help.

Not exactly. We NEVER make guarantees about a student’s chances of getting accepted to a school. The admissions process is highly volatile and involves an element of chance. To say that working with CollegeVine guarantees you an acceptance to any school is simply wrong (that's also not how statistics works!) However, we do work closely with families to improve their chances as much as possible.

Nope. As a policy, we never tell our clients that they cannot apply to a college or university. We are always upfront about your chances of getting admitted and will let you know explicitly if your chances of admission are slim. But if a family is dead set on applying to a school and requests help, we are committed to helping them on their applications to allow them to give it their best shot.

Fair question. After all, you should never trust everything you read on the internet! However, our team just isn't wired that way. We're also backed by reputable investors that conduct due diligence on their companies before investing.

Not at all! In fact, one of the core assumptions of our mentorship program is the belief that students should attempt to build skills that will make them successful throughout life in general — not just college admissions. We know each family has a unique approach to education, and our prerogative is to be their trusted partner to help them achieve their goals.
