CollegeVine has unequivocally been the best investment my family has made. Both of my children have been enrolled in CollegeVine's Mentorship, SAT and Applications Programs. Everyone we've encountered at this organization has been a joy to work with. Our children's mentors and consultants were extremely strong writers and able to assist my kids with getting their thoughts onto paper in a compelling way. The difference between CollegeVine and other local consultants we interviewed is CollegeVine's data platform. We loved their data tools and the other consultants we talked to didn't seem to have anything as sophisticated. Both of my children were ultimately accepted to top-ranked schools with generous financial aid packages we were not expecting. We can't thank CollegeVine enough for the tremendous support.

Excellent Support. Worth every penny spent. Our senior was appropriately matched with a peer college advisor with whom they trusted to assist with review and brainstorming the voluminous amount of college essays. While we already had the college list prepared when signed up, College Vine supplied valuable input and insight throughout the process. While a daunting process especially for the highly selective schools, College Vine’s support in easing the pain and anxiety of the application process for both student and parents was superb. Our child was admitted to their first choice Ivy League school. College Vine helped highlight strengths to present in the best light possible. We recommend College Vine without hesitation. Wish we had found them sooner.

No one communicates with each dept. I had specific request of timelines that my daughter had to go through.
Those requests were not met. I had to call multiple times to follow up as to when he tutoring was to start as they did not start the week I requested.
This list can go on as I have lots more. But my experience was miserable.

CollegeVine has provided our son and daughter with outstanding advice and assistance. Our son applied to 12 colleges, most of which were highly selective and the CollegeVine team kept him on track and on task. The advice provided by his near peer mentor regarding organizing and completing the Common App helped him to craft a comprehensive and cohesive story that then coordinated nicely with his essays. The essay review and editing was on point and he developed a great relationship with the mentor. Our daughter is currently utilizing the SAT tutoring service as well and we are confident that this will have an impact on her ultimate scores.

I’m not sure how effective the program was for my child. Scores did not improve by more than 10 points.

Really not worth the money. But more importantly it was a very poor experience. For two different colleges we spent considerable time drafting and refining essays. Only when we logged on to apply to the schools did we find that the essays prompts provided to us by CollegeVine turned out to be wrong. The time was wasted. They did a poor job of helping to refine our college choices and didn't seem to understand engineering at all. All in all, I spent a great deal of money and didn't get anything like the service that was promised. Find another advisor.

Review by Bafford8 months ago
Extremely misleading, disappointing and limited perspectives when reading my essays. Advice on what to do to boost my application as well as what schools to apply to was not beneficial and gave me false impressions. Furthermore, they share all of my information to every consultant and client, which I need them to stop.

Excellent service. Really made a difference. One caveat - if you are not happy with the person assigned to you, ask for someone different.

My daughter was motivated to participate in the internet sessions with the college-aged peer that worked with her on timelines and essays.

My son has received very personal attention from his mentor. It seems that the mentors have been very well-trained, even though they are just in college themselves. All of our contacts have been professional and respond to questions in a timely manner. The application process has become so complicated. It has been very helpful to have someone to turn to for help and suggestions.

CollegeVine is a great resource in helping students figure out how they want to approach the college admissions process and in helping refine essays to be as well stated as they can be (the main reason why I sought their help). There seems to be various options to fit individual needs, ranging from getting advice on managing high school life to choosing the right college for you!

They seem to understand the process very well, and they take the information you feed them to help create organized essays that reflect what you tell them. I emphasize what you tell them because they don't know you, so you need to tell them exactly everything you want to include in your essays.

A year ago, my 17-year-old daughter stepped in front of the TV and said: "Dad, I want to hire a consultant." She then proceeded to present a formulated justification for her request. At the end I told her "Yes." She then asked what portion of her presentation was most persuasive. I replied: "The moment when my 17 year old asked if she could hire a consultant." I am thrilled I trusted my daughter. CollegeVine is an essential resource in today's university application process. CollegeVine tailored a strategy that meets my daughter's needs. Frequent meetings and countless electronic communications have helped my daughter build her list, prepare her essays, and submitted well-constructed applications. Even as she begins receiving acceptance letters, the work with the CollegeVine counsellors continues and will do so up until the May 1st National College Decision Day. I can without reservation state that CollegeVine is a high return investment in my daughter's future.

My son attended a public high school with minimal college essay writing support. He wanted to go to a top tier university and he wanted advice on how best to tackle the essays. CollegeVine provided a very bright young woman very close to his age that was recently accepted and was attending an ivy league school. She provided the guidance he needed to craft essays that he felt good about submitting. She assisted him by reviewing the full application prior to submitting. He was accepted to several of his top schools and is currently attending UC Berkeley.
