About Collegewise Northwest
More than 550 students have submitted 7000 applications with Collegewise Northwest since we opened our doors in 2009. With our giant chalkboard covered in senior pictures, the ever-growing map of all the colleges we’ve visited, and the occasional presence of Brady the office dog, Seattle families find a comfortable, inspiring place to begin the college application process at Collegewise Northwest.
And don’t worry, our office isn’t just a great place to start college applications—we celebrate when they’re finished, too. Once they’ve completed all of their college apps, Collegewise Northwest seniors ring our gong to celebrate with their counselors (and with everyone else within earshot).

What are people saying about Collegewise Northwest?
I couldn’t have had a better experience with Collegewise. Katie and Tom are such amazing people and counselors. I felt like each of my appointments was something to look forward to–never a chore. Working with them made me feel confident and happy throughout the application process. I couldn’t recommend Collegewise more!
I got into college because of Collegewise. If I hadn’t had someone to keep me organized and on top of my applications, they wouldn’t have been nearly as high quality as they were. My college application process was almost completely stress-free because of Katie and Tom and the rest of Collegewise. Thank you so much!

The Collegewise process is spot-on. Timing, advice, approach and the tactical execution of getting things done was perfect. My son wouldn’t be attending college where he is if not for Collegewise. The advice and counseling are fantastic. Perfect approach for the kids, and great communication with parents.

It was very reassuring to fill out the applications with someone experienced, knowing that I was on track for finishing well before the deadline. Additionally, I felt like my application was a great representation of who I am–it was the best version of myself, and it wasn’t ridiculously overblown either.

While working with Collegewise, the stress of college applications just melted away! Although the writing and research took some time, it was absolutely worth it because, in the end, I knew I had sent in the best application I could and the college I picked would be the perfect fit for me!
I cannot say enough about the Collegewise process! Our counselor walked Breanna and me through every step and kept Breanna organized and on point. Breanna was also the first of all her friends to complete all her applications! The BEST PART is that BREANNA was accepted to UW, her dream school!
