Customized College Applications and Admissions Program (for 11th-12th Graders)
Unprecedented Challenges for Top Applicants
As your high school years come to an end, in parallel to your busy school work, including AP or IB classes, your extra studying for the SAT and other standardized tests (if still incomplete), and your commitment to extracurricular activities, you know you need to tackle college applications. And in today’s hyper-competitive environment, applying to ten or more schools (typically the University of California system and many selective private schools for a California resident) is increasingly standard.
More than ever, the college application process feels grueling: demanding, detail-oriented, deadline-driven, and time-consuming. And it is, if you want to succeed in an era when more and more amazing students apply to top colleges and universities every year.
Experienced Guidance Can Make a Difference
Fortunately, IvyMax has just the right solution for you — the customized IvyMax College Applications and Admissions Program (CAP). We realize that applying to college is a very personal, profound, and customized process; no one else shares your brain or your set of experiences, values, goals, doubts, curiosities, and preferences. CAP connects you to a highly seasoned team of college counselors and editors who use IvyMax’s superbly effective methodology to guide you through the entire process.
Our program includes strategic planning, school choices, personal statement/essay brainstorming assistance and editorial feedback, application form review, guidance for teacher recommendations and counselor reports, interview skills training and preparation, and more! We help you make the right decisions, optimize your outlook, maximize your chances for admission, and enhance subsequent chances for success in college and beyond. Unlike many programs, CAP will train you to be a better writer and a more confident student and young adult by helping bring out your authentic best as a whole person.

College Financial Aid Advice
College expenses are a major concern for most families. The recent national economic crisis is hurting the higher education system in the U.S. This is especially felt by California residents as the State of California budget crunch is increasingly hurting the UC (public school) system and other universities and colleges. Cal grant continues being reduced. Fortunately, IvyMax’s College Financial Aid Service helps you and your parents maximize financial aid gain and minimize financial pain.
We help families demystify common misunderstandings of college financial aid, such as giving up on applying for financial aid based on family income or assets or academic performance, such as believing that attending public schools is cheaper than attending private schools. We provide valuable guidance to families in planning ahead, differentiating between public schools and private schools’ expenses, evaluating assets and tax returns, estimating the ability to pay for college education, and applying for financial aid, including grants and scholarships if applicable, from different schools, handling the 529 tax-advantaged savings plan.
