Elite Top 100 Admissions

For international students considering Ivy League or Top 100 university undergraduate admission,

Cogito offers comprehensive guidance and strategic planning to make that dream a reality.

Our experienced team of admissions consultants, together with Ivy League-educated writing experts and analysts, works one-on-one with students to navigate the college admissions process. As top-ranked universities get more selective (the Ivy League admits only 5-14% of all applicants), it’s important for students to learn how to express themselves beyond exam scores and grades.

Our services include:

  • College selection & application to 10 schools
  • Tutoring 3 hours with Ivy League graduate
  • Personal Essay content development, editing & proofreading
  • Supplemental Essay support for two essays
  • Activities list development
  • Application submission and follow-up
  • Weekly Skype meeting and constant email support

We coach students on optimal academic and extracurricular choices, and provide additional support services where needed.
