Fall 2019 UC Application Service

UPDATE – I am bringing on a Common App expert to help support my clients applying to those schools starting this year; details are being worked out but we’ll be ready for the ED/EA deadlines.

I have finalized the UC Application Service pricing for this upcoming application cycle (November 2018 deadline). However, the service will not become available until the end of July, as I am working out some final details. Meanwhile, I am offering a “4-Week Fast Track” option (described below; 7/14/2018-8/11/2018) for students who are ready to jumpstart their UC Application process. To better assist you in planning your next step, I am also posting the pricing information for my UC Application Service below (these are draft descriptions, for further clarification, see service features comparison chart here); if you want to sign up for a service, please reserve your spot by emailing me and indicating the service you want. I hope to have the pleasure of working with you!

Before you ask whether I review completed PIQ response, please know that my services focus on helping students develop a comprehensive admission strategy that emphasizes their strengths and qualifications. The only way I can do this is by thoroughly evaluating their background, aspirations, and every aspect of their accomplishments and/or the setbacks they have experienced. Because of this, my input is significantly more effective at the start of the process, rather than at the end. That means, if you are looking for an affordable way to move through the process, consider my UC Admissions Strategy Consultation (described below; $675) before you start writing your PIQ response.

Please note: I offer a discount for low-income families (documentation or explanation of financial hardship required); please inquire for details.
