How we can help?
The college application process can be absolutely daunting for students and their families. At UniversityCoach, we serve as admissions consultants from day 1 of the process until admission and beyond. We have successfully helped our students navigate the most rigorous admissions processes in the world with incredible success.
With UniversityCoach’s comprehensive college preparation and application packages, we provide hands-on guidance throughout every step of the college application process. These packages provide flexibility, yet structure, to help your child achieve his or her goals.
Our signature college counseling program, developed and refined over nearly a decade, has consistently been shown to deliver results. Working closely with your family over junior and/or senior year(s), our Coaches will cover the everything needed for your application.
The Challenge – Picking the Right Consultant
Applying to college is difficult. Thankfully, finding a college application consultant is not hard. Do a quick Google search and you will find quite literally hundreds of people claiming to be a “consultant”. Finding the right advisor for your child is much more difficult.
Many of the advisors/consultants have limited, if any, admissions experience. In order to evaluate your consultant, you must understand who they are and how they work. Many giant companies hire recent high school graduates (!) to do their consulting. That is like finding a medical student to do your surgery instead of a physician with 20 years of experience. Other companies have a plethora of consultants to chose from, each of whom work independently and without any oversight.
Our approach is different. We employ a team based approach to admissions consulting lead by some of the most experienced consultants in the world. Our coaches have served on admissions committees and helped thousands of applicants meet their potential and get into amazing schools. We only work comprehensively with students and their families so that we can position them for optimal success.

Part of becoming a successful college applicant is targeting the right schools. We help create an effective list with our expert coaches taking into account information far beyond just SAT/ACT scores.
The college application requires “pen to paper” (or today, fingers on a keyboard). Everything you’ve done comes down to how you present yourself on an actual application. This is where we help our students shine.
Interviews increasingly play a large role in college acceptance. Our coaches have conducted nearly 50,000 hours of practice interviews, for students around the country to get them prepared.
What is included?
We believe in comprehensive help through the college admissions process. Anything less is short changing our chance to make a true impact. Therefore, most of our students are on a complete package that takes them through all aspects of the application including:
- School list creation
- Activity planning

How will you help with the personal statement?
Perhaps one the most daunting tasks for college students is writing the common application personal statement. Our coaches help our students brainstorm, develop, edit and refine their personal statements through many revisions, helping make it the center point of their application.
Who will be my child’s coach?
A successful college applicant is borne from a team approach. At UniversityCoach, we believe in working as a team to help your son/daughter achieve their dreams. All coaching is overseen by Dr. Sahil Mehta, admissions expert and founder of UniversityCoach, and conducted by the in-house IvyLeagueCoach team.
