Since 2010, The Art of Applying team has worked directly with 1000+ applicants from all over the world on getting into their dream schools.
Our clients have earned $20+ million in merit scholarships and fellowships.
We have 8000+ unique monthly visitors to our website and 8,000+ active monthly newsletter subscribers.
We were started out of an HBS apartment, and now have a twelve-year track record, countless celebratory screenshots, and a Netflix-like library of video testimonials on our Youtube channel and here on our blog from our thrilled clients.
We aren’t here to try and see if you might get in; we’re here to help you get amazing life-changing results.
Why choose us?
- We have a 10+ year record of outstanding results. We focus on helping our clients get into the best school possible — even if they aren’t the perfect applicant.
- We don’t charge by the school. You can apply to as many schools and scholarships as you want with our help once you’re a client, regardless of the package.
- We help you apply for scholarships and negotiate for additional scholarship aid. We don’t want you to just get in; we want you to have a clear plan for paying for school. Some of our clients are wealthy, but for those who are not, our expertise in financial aid negotiations is essential.
- You aren’t applying in isolation. You’ll have a dedicated one-on-one consultant assigned to work with you on your application materials. On top of that, you will also have access to our teaching modules, and our wider team of consultants such as our resume specialist, writing tutor, and mindset coaches. You’ll also have access to our wider network of applicants we’ve worked with over the last 10+ years.
Who we work with
Our clients tend to identify with our tribe of “wild card applicants” and fall into one or more of these categories:
- passionate but imperfect applicants to Harvard and other top-ranked institutions
- Harvard Kennedy School applicants of all types
- joint degree applicants who want a company that understands the intricacies and nuances of applying to multiple schools across two or more degrees
- people from underrepresented racial/ethnic backgrounds — and we happily accept white clients and achieve outstanding results with them as well — just to be clear. 🙂
- first-generation U.S. citizen
- first-generation college graduate
- first-generation professional (meaning they are a member of the first generation in their family to go to grad school — like our founder Kaneisha!)
- grew up in a low-income environment (U.S. or international) and have “made it”
- LGBTQIA and/or non-binary
- have ADHD, dyslexia, or other types of neurodiversity
