Share Article

The need for college guidance has reached a new high amidst pandemic-induced uncertainty, and delaying college due to the pandemic can cost students $90,000 over their lifetime, according to a recent study by the Federal Reserve. Back to School with IvyWise provides comprehensive support to help students achieve their academic goals.

IvyWise, the world’s leading educational consulting firm top-ranked by Forbes and TopCollegeConsultants.com, announces the debut of Back to School with IvyWise, an initiative to provide students and families with comprehensive academic and college admissions support. As the COVID-19 pandemic catalyzes unprecedented levels of change in higher education, IvyWise experts seek to provide guidance for all students no matter where they are in their academic journey.

For over 20 years, IvyWise has been leading the independent educational consulting industry, with an expert team of former deans and directors of admission from the top universities in the US. Our counselors were in the room where it happens, making the hard decisions on who gets in and who doesn't – and with over 200 years of combined experience in admissions they know what families can expect this admissions cycle. No other consultancy has this depth and breadth of experience, and with students facing an uncertain back to school season, IvyWise is committed to continuing to share their expertise with the world through new and expanded resources and services.

Back to School with IvyWise includes a breadth of relevant and appropriate free resources for students during every stage of their college admissions journey. Key aspects of the initiative include:

Just Admit It! Podcast: Get the most important college admissions insight and advice in 30 minutes or less, with Just Admit It! This podcast features IvyWise’s college admissions experts, who have more than 200 years of combined admissions experience at elite institutions. From adapting to the pandemic to building a balanced college list, our ex-Deans and Directors of Admissions uncover what universities are really looking for and how students can stand out when applying to college this fall.

Webinars & Counselor’s Corner: A series of interactive virtual events offered to both families and school-based counselors on specialized topics, including how COVID-19 is impacting higher education and what fall 2020 applicants need to know. These webinars will bring relevant updates and advice directly to parents and students, as well as provide professional development and resources to aid school-based counselors during this unusual college admissions cycle.

Knowledgebase: From articles and videos to free guides and downloads, the IvyWise Knowledgebase provides a plethora of resources to parents, students, and educators to demystify the complicated college admissions process.
IvyWise has been the leading college consultancy in the world for over 20 years, so we know that the college admissions landscape is constantly changing. Students’ needs and goals have changed rapidly over the past few months, and in response IvyWise has revamped and expanded a number of services for college bound students and their families:

IvyWise Tutoring: Students’ academic needs have evolved dramatically since schools went virtual this spring, and IvyWise has met that demand by expanding our tutoring services to meet the needs of today’s students. From helping students develop executive functioning skills for things like time management and organization in order to succeed in virtual learning environments, to supplementing students’ coursework with academic tutoring to ensure they stay on track with their educational goals, IvyWise is offering a plethora of tutoring services to support students during this time.

Project Mentorship: Extracurricular activities have been dramatically cut, leaving many students with few opportunities to engage their academic interests outside of the classroom. In response IvyWise has developed a one-of-a-kind mentorship program, where students are guided through a customized independent project from start to finish by an IvyWise expert tutor who is a subject-matter specialist in that field. Students come away from their mentorship project with solid deliverables they can feature on their college applications.

WisePrep: IvyWise has expanded offerings to provide early college guidance for middle school students, including foundational guidance and mentorship designed to help students start their journey to higher education off on the best note. In a WisePrep program, IvyWise works with students and families on every foundational element of their educational journey, from choosing the right curriculum to developing a holistic student through executive functioning and socioemotional guidance to instilling a love of learning and the tools for academic excellence.

A college education is a valuable experience that can be life changing for many students. In an effort to better address the need for access to quality college admissions services, IvyWise is continuing its IvyWise Gives Back initiative by revamping and expanding our pro bono offerings.

IvyWise Scholars: An expanded pro bono program designed to increase accessibility to quality admissions counseling. IvyWise Scholars receive personalized guidance from our admissions experts throughout every step of their application process.

From students looking for essay advice to parents searching for financial aid tips, Back to School with IvyWise will provide expert insight into higher education’s most pressing questions. During a fall semester that is rife with uncertainty, IvyWise seeks to provide actionable insight that will empower students to turn their academic dreams into realities.
