Comprehensive College Application Help

The college application process can be stressful for parents and students alike. We've helped over 6,000 students navigate the college admissions process, so we know what it takes to put together a successful application while making the process less stressful.

School List Based on Your Chances & Fit

We know that the college search process is one of the most overwhelming steps of the college application process. That’s why we developed our innovative Chancing Engine and School List Generator. We use an algorithm backed by over 100,000 data points to develop a school list based on your real admissions chances and preferences.

College Application Strategy

Because admissions officers are reviewing tons of applications at a time, you need to stand out. The most effective way to do this is to develop a strong narrative that will tie together each component of your application. Your Admissions Consultant will help you discover and develop your personal admissions theme to create a memorable application.

Tracking All Application Deadlines

Applying to college comes with an overwhelming number of deadlines that are extremely important to stay on top of. Our platform automatically organizes each deadline associated with the schools that you’re applying to and provides an easy way to track your progress.

Crafting a Strong College Essay

Your essays can help boost your applications significantly. We’re experts at the college essay, having helped thousands of students craft compelling essays that stand out during the admissions process. We guide students through the entire college essay process.

Common App Guidance

The Common App requires more than just filling out basic information — you need to be strategic when it comes to the Common App in order to highlight your extracurricular and academic achievements successfully. We’ll help you navigate the application so that your accomplishments shine through.

Prep for Your College Interviews

After you’ve submitted your applications, you still might have another step to go before you’re done applying to college: the interview. Your consultant will meet with you to go over the most common interview questions, analyze your responses and suggest improvements, and conduct full mock interviews so you feel comfortable during the real ones.

Financial Aid and Scholarship Help

College is one of the most important financial decisions that families will make, and CollegeVine has spent years understanding and analyzing the financial aid process to make college as affordable as possible. Our applications program includes school-based scholarship and financial aid support.

Admissions Decisions Assistance

While the majority of the stress in applying to college is over after you’ve hit “Submit,” you might have a lot of questions when it comes to understanding your admissions decisions and choosing the best college for you. Your consultant will be ready to help you dissect each acceptance and financial aid offer, weigh the pros and cons of every school, and matriculate at the college that will be the best fit.

A Team to Rely On

You’ll be paired with an Admissions Consultant that will guide you through the process, and you’ll get the benefit of your progress being monitored by a Program Manager. Our Quality Assurance team will also assess your application so that you can feel confident you’re submitting the best possible application.
