College Research, Planning, and Selection
Effective and targeted research and planning is a vital aspect to a successful college admissions process. Students cannot achieve their academic and career goals without a clear understanding of where they’re going, the steps needed to get there, and a measured implementation of specific strategies to achieve success.
Our advising focuses on academic and career goal setting, identifying best fit colleges, and attention to the complex factors involved in getting admitted to selective programs.
Our work specifically focuses on the strengths of the individual. By helping our clients identify their talents, we empower them to pursue academic and career paths that offer fulfillment alongside success.

Admissions Optimization and Personal-Branding
Austin Admissions Consulting uses a unique process to help each student market themselves to colleges and universities. We take the proven strategies of marketing firms and tailor them to the admissions process. We help each client identify and craft his or her personal brand, in order to present a cohesive and compelling “best self” to admissions committees.
Competition is tough – students must beat out hundreds and sometimes thousands of competitors to get accepted to a top choice college. The successful use of personal branding functions as an “x-factor” in the admissions process, helping distill a client’s compelling and unique story to admissions committees considering thousands of other candidates.

Design and Crafting of Compelling Essays and Personal Statements
Here’s where the rubber meets the road. We help each client understand the core principles of crafting compelling and impactful personal statements and college essays, which serve as the unifying pieces of the application. We use our past successes as a reference for what works in getting the thumbs up from competitive college admissions committees around the country, resulting in compelling essays that can make the difference in getting accepted to competitive colleges and earning scholarship money.

Here we help clients weigh the pros and cons of different colleges and universities, analyzong the sometimes complex consequences of choosing one school over another. We also help our clients appeal for more generous financial aid offers.

We work with students as early as 8th grade to help prepare them for getting into college.
Today, the college admissions process starts the first day of 9th grade. In order to get into the most competitive colleges, students and parents must think about college applications long before Senior year.
We help our clients focus on personal-branding early, emphasizing choosing extra-curricular and volunteer courses that will enrich a student while preparing for the competitive process of applying to college. Additionally, our advisers walk students and parents through the complexity of high school course selection, preparation for standardized tests, and linking college selection to career success.
We help empower parents and students to understand and thrive in the competitive educational reality of the 21st century.
