A little about us
AdmitLink is a non-profit admissions consulting firm assisting students seeking to attend college or graduate school. We also work with high school athletes seeking to earn NCAA scholarships. Our services include matching the student with prospective schools, reviewing the resume and personal statement, assisting in the scholarship search and financial aid process, proofreading the applications, and long-term career planning. We specialize in applications geared towards Ivy League institutions, the top liberal arts colleges, Military Service Academies (West Point, Annapolis, Air Force Academy), and the top law & business schools.
AdmitLink also offers partnerships with other non-profits, churches, mentoring programs, and after-school programs. We train our partner organizations in the college application process, so the organization can then better assist their underserved high school students. (Teach the teacher!) We use the tools, materials, and metrics that we develop for our one-on-one clients/services to provide programming for our partner organizations.
Our understanding of the admissions process at the undergraduate and graduate levels plays a vital role in increasing the academic opportunities for our clients. The key to our success is our personal experience and education at the most elite universities in the United States. The academic success of our students is our only goal.
