Admission Preparation Service

Service is available year-round $520 (30-day consultation for one student)

Last May you did a 30 day academic review for our twin sons. The review was quite helpful in many ways, but in particular you suggested that the boys apply to COSMOS for 2017. I had heard of COSMOS, but frankly never thought that our children had much chance to be accepted.

Well… yesterday both boys were accepted for their first choice cluster for summer 2017.

While attending COSMOS will likely strengthen their UC application next fall, more importantly they are really excited about attending the program. They also learned how to navigate the application, ask for teacher recommendations and write what I thought were excellent essays. COSMOS was a bit of a reach for them ,but they confidently put in their best effort on the application and the result was amazing.

Without last May’s consult, they would not have applied to COSMOS. Applying for college next fall doesn’t look quite as intimidating either.
