PathIvy helped me develop a strategy to allow me to get into my dream school. My counselor, Vicky, gave me the confidence to stay focused through high school and was with me every step of the way.
Thank you also for all of your help over the past few years. Your realism and fantastic advice pushed me beyond what I believed I was capable of! I'll keep you posted on what I'm doing at MIT!
I can't recommend PathIvy enough! Vicky helped me select the right classes, prepare for my placement tests, develop my essays, and prepare for my interviews. I can't believe it! Yale!
UW Computer Science is my dream school. I thought is was out of my reach. PathIvy helped define a strategy and write powerful story which helped me get into UW Computer Science
We are from India. The US college admission process is very different. With PathIvy's guidance, we feel comfortable with the college admission process. The unique strategy outlined by PathyIvy team makes sense - we would never have thought that college admissions is about planning and strategy.
With less than perfect GPA, I was not sure I would get into any top schools. The theme and branding that was created by my counselor helped me be stand out in the college application process.
Thanks for helping my kid. He has grown more serious about studies. His study habits have improved. Also he has started going to office hours of teachers. Overall, I see improvement in high school grades.
PathIvy helped us select the right high school for my son. We were debating between private schools, choice schools, and public schools. The PathyIvy counselor took time to understand my son's strengths and interests and family's long term goals and guides us to make the right decision.
Thanks! Thanks! Thanks! I could not have done without you.
