The Collegewise Difference

Collegewise is out to change the world of college admissions. Since we opened our doors in 1999, our expert counselors have guided more than 10,000 students to successful admissions outcomes. We believe that applying to college should be an exciting time for students and parents, not a stressful, anxiety-ridden rite of passage.

Every year, our counselors work with a small caseload of students, creating customized plans and setting deadlines to ensure that students complete their applications and essays thoughtfully, effectively, early, and without mom and dad having to step in to take the reins.
