A La Carte
Build your best possible profile by discovering your strengths, weaknesses, life goals, and target programs. We will guide you through everything you need for admission into top schools and design a plan for how to get there. The results of The Application Strategy Lab will last forever.
Let the admissions committee see you in the best light. Our experts will review your resume, provide feedback, come up with a strategy to deal with any weaknesses or gaps, and edit the style and language to highlight your strengths, so that you can stand out among numerous candidates.
Stories stimulate areas of the brain involved with social and emotional processing and have been central to human life for thousands of years. A good essay has a BIG influence on the admissions committee’s decision. Our mentors will guide you to create themed and polished essays that tell your story.
A letter of recommendation is one of the most influential parts of your application because someone else’s opinion of you is more believable than your own. We will advise you how to choose the best recommenders and how to guide them to write the perfect letter to support your application to your dream university.
Receiving an interview invitation is a big step in the right direction and is an opportunity not to be wasted. Our team will help you to prepare by sharing tips on how to, and how NOT to, answer the many potential questions. Practice makes perfect so we will take you through a series of mock interviews.
If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. Being on a waitlist does not mean you have failed. There are ways to help you rise to the top of the applicant pool and to potentially move from the waitlist to an acceptance. We will help you rise back up from even the most challenging of setbacks.
We may not be fortune tellers but we do have the experience to judge your chances of acceptance. The whole Mission To Top U team will assess your application materials, following a similar process to a real admissions committee, and provide genuine feedback on every aspect of your application.
