The decision to pursue a graduate degree over the next several years is a big one.

However, where you receive your degree from is perhaps even more important with regard to your future career opportunities.

There is so much misinformation about what it takes to get into top graduate schools. Whereas some of what you read and hear is accurate, much of it isn't. How do you decide? 

Even worse, you may be stressing yourself out by comparing yourself to other applicants out of worry that you're missing something critical to getting in.

In addition to having a strong GPA and standardized test scores, you'll have to describe your unique path to your chosen field to impress admissions committees and get accepted to great programs.

That's where we come in. During the past 8 years, over 90% of our students have gotten into at least one of their top 3 schools through our highly individualized approach to admissions consulting.

We don't simply offer editing services. Instead, we help you tell an engaging story through all of your application materials about why you're ready to pursue your graduate degree and enter your chosen field.

Sample Testimonials

The biggest compliment to our work comes from our students. Here's what a few of them have said about our services:

Working with Shirag was the difference maker in me getting into Columbia, my top-choice school. He helped me write an incredible resume and authentic personal statement. Not just that, but he helped me convince the admissions committee to admit me a semester early! His guidance was well worth the investment—especially since I only had to apply to one school.
— Boris H., Construction Engineering and Management Student

Shirag provided incredibly thorough help with internship and job applications. He is professional, insightful, and gives excellent and specific advice for how to strengthen my essays, cover letters, and résumé. I have recommended his services to many friends who similarly found him to be extremely helpful in their application processes.
— Alex Z, Ph.D., Psychologist (Received offers for top-choice psychology internship & job position)
