OUR PHILOSOPHY

Our philosophy at Admissions-Office is simple: we seek to light the fires of inspiration within each of our students to help them achieve their highest potential in whatever field they study. We do this by giving them the time and personalized attention they need to truly succeed. Structured after the ancient Socratic school of Athens, we give students the time and attention they need to successfully navigate the maze that is the university admissions process, as well as provide guidance as students encounter academic challenges at every level from Kindergarten to Post-Graduate studies and Graduate applications.

Admissions-Office is not a replacement for a student’s high school counselors, but we complement their efforts and develop academic and social enrichment programs to produce the strongest students possible. According to the National Association for College Admissions Counseling, the average time spent on university admissions by high school counselors is just 38 minutes per student, which is not enough to give you peace of mind or security for the university admissions process. This is where the Admissions-Office counselors come in. We meet with our students on average 1.5 hours a week throughout the entire application process to supplement what students are doing at school and with their counselors. We are also usually available by phone or email throughout the year, as opposed to only the school year. This allows you to take advantage of the very important summer break for conducting service activities and working on outside projects.

Throughout our prolonged counseling process, we encourage our students to develop and engage in unique activities to expand their understanding of their proposed undergraduate major. This can include activities such as:

  • Applying for and participating in internships at top financial institutions
  • Starting businesses to explore the functions of the business world and the associated economic principles
  • Conducting in-depth ethnographic surveys of remote tribes to study to principles of anthropology
  • Building quad-rotor systems to carry a camera payload for building-site surveys

These are just several examples of activities our students have engaged in. Each of these was a long-term project involving many different steps, long-term research, and resulted in genuine personal growth and the establishment of a deep reserve of knowledge and a respect for the discipline the students desired to explore further. Each of these students is either attending or has graduated from an Ivy League university in the United States.

After these activities have been performed, the students then wrote their university admissions essays. AO's guiding principle is to identify the best institutional match for our advisees.  We firmly believe that it is vital for students to be matched with schools and universities that are the best fit academically and environmentally.  Through working closely with students over the course of several years, AO counselors get to know their students very well and are able to recommend the most suitable schools and able to help the students effectively demonstrate their unique characteristics and abilities.  The Admissions-Office strictly adheres to the Statement of Principles of Good Practice (SGPG) Best Practices of the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC).

So, call us today and come in and meet to find out what we are really about. It is our passion to help your students be everything that can be, and we know that with over fifteen years of experience, we are exactly what is needed to help you achieve that Ivy League standing.
