The Ivyplus Admissions Program

Our unique college readiness questionnaire is designed to help us assess your strengths and weaknesses so that we can recommend the best college track program for you. Students who want to take advantage of our comprehensive counseling program will be place into following the questionnaire.  


An important part of the college preparation strategy is to recognize your strengths early and choose your classes wisely. Our College Readiness Questionnaire (CRQ) is the first step in your strategy for getting into the most selective schools. Below are the three placements tracks for our students.   


HOW DOES THIS WORK 


After completing the college readiness questionnaire and the interview with our college coach, you will be placed in one of our Ivyplus tracks and the process of getting you into one or more of the colleges in your Ivyplus Track will begin. The interview can be over Skype, FaceTime or in person.


Please note that we do not enroll students who do not fit into one of our College Track programs. A student can enroll into the Ivyplus Admissions program in any grade before 12th grade, however for best results, we recommend starting the program in 9th grade because every grade counts.


UNDERSTANDING THE APPLICATION PROCESS

Many selective schools have the deviced schemes to reduce competition for admitted students and increase the odds of the students accepting their offer of admission. Below are the different schemes.  


EARLY ADMISSION OPTIONS

There are three main types of early admission plans. All three plans usually require you to apply in October or November. All the plans give you an early decision; you’ll know in December or January if you’ve been accepted.

Other parts of the plans vary by college our job is to help you understand the rules, as part of the overall strategy for your application process.  Here are some details about each option.


EARLY DECISION:

You can apply to only one early decision college.


If the college accepts you and offers you enough financial aid, you must go to that college. That’s why these plans are referred to as “binding.”


Some colleges have two early deadlines, called early decision deadline I and early decision deadline II. They both work the same way, but the second deadline gives you more time to decide whether to apply early. Although you may apply to additional colleges through the regular admission process, you must withdraw all other applications if you’re accepted by this college.


EARLY ACTION:

You can apply to more than one early action college. If you're accepted, you can say yes right away or wait until spring to decide.


You can also decline the offer.


Single-choice Early Action:

You can apply early to only one college and still apply to other schools for regular decision. You don't have to give your final answer to the early application college.


LAST WORD

Learning the college application scheme is crucial to not only getting into the school of your choice but also maximizing your academic grants, scholarships and financial aid. Choosing to go regular decision, early action, early decision or single choice early action is a matter of strategy.

Getting into the college of your dream is a process not an accident. It requires forethought, planning and execution of strategy. It begins in Ninth grade.
