Services

At Yates Admissions, our college admissions counseling services, targeted for all top tier universities, begins with an initial strategic plan. During a one hour session conducted via video chat, we present a strategic plan that, if executed correctly, can significantly boost a student’s chances of admission to their dream universities. Following this initial strategic plan, we work with our students through one of two pathways: an à la carte bundle or a complete college counseling bundle.

 

Initial Strategic Plan – During this hour-long session, Yates Admissions will outline a plan with respect to coursework, testing, extracurriculars, and more. The earlier on during the high school experience one comes to us, the more mistakes we can correct. But even when students come to us later on in their high school experiences, there are always opportunities to vastly improve their cases for admission. Perhaps their senior year coursework would put them at a distinct disadvantage when applying to top tier universities. Perhaps their activities are a bit all over the place and they would significantly benefit from showcasing a singular hook. So many of those aha moments occur as we present the strategic plan.

 

À La Carte Admissions Package – Fee based on à la carte selection(s). Some students only seek out our help with shaping and fine-tuning their college admissions essays, through an à la carte approach. We offer assistance with any and all college admissions essays from personal statements to supplemental admissions essays that are targeted for specific top tier universities. Some students only seek out our help for interview prep. Some only for help with securing fantastic letters of recommendation from teachers and counselors. Yates Admissions is happy to help with any component of the admissions process and our à la carte option is a very common way in which our students make use of our services and expertise.
