Maximize Your Success

Our programs are designed to help international students navigate through the complex intricacies of the university admissions process and to maximize their chances of getting accepted into the schools and majors of their choices. Our counselors focus on translating each student’s abilities, experiences, and interests into a strong university application.

International students face a unique challenge when applying to universities in the U.S. due to the fact that they are new to the American school system. Established universities seek well-rounded applicants with high grades, diverse interests, specific skills, and strong community ties; international students often struggle to demonstrate these qualifications.

University Admissions Counseling Program

Combining technology with access to professional resources and statistics that are inaccessible to the general public, our professional counselors are experts in the latest developments in the top U.S. school’s admissions requirements. They understand what qualities admissions officers are looking for and will strategically market your application to improve your chances of getting accepted to the school and major of your choice. Our goal is not only to guide you through the university application process but to also give advice on making smart decisions that will help you reach future career goals.

You will meet one-on-one with a Quest counselor who will review your transcripts, test scores, resume, extracurricular activities, career goals, interests and personal preferences to create personalized school recommendations for you.

After deciding on a school list, your counselor will work with you to craft memorable personal statements and unique supplement essays for each school. They will also help you keep on track with application deadlines and review all of your applications prior to submission.
