WHAT'S THE POINT OF COLLEGE?
Here at Wisdem, we believe college serves three main purposes – education/skill development, social/personal development, and career preparation. For many, attending college is a life-defining experience. Because of this, we take a holistic approach to college admissions counseling. Drawing upon experiences in elite academia, the professional world, and in our personal lives, we strive for more than just helping our clients gain admission to competitive universities. We help them find their fit. Our goal is for clients to be fulfilled by their college choice so that they succeed not only in college, but also in life.
WHAT COLLEGE ADMISSIONS COUNSELING DOES WISDEM OFFER?
Wisdem provides the full gamut of college admissions counseling services. Our offerings begin with topic-based modules focused on key pillars of the college admissions process. These are ideal for students in 9th and 10th grade. As part of these modules, we advise clients on how to nurture their unique academic and extracurricular interests while also crafting a compelling college-bound narrative. Additionally, we provide strategic advising regarding standardized testing, volunteering, and other factors related to admission requirements.
For high school students in their junior and senior years, we offer rigorous, comprehensive, and on-demand support for navigating every aspect of the college admissions process, including financial aid. We also offer admissions counseling for graduate-level programs and professional degree programs, such as law school.
WHY WISDEM FOR COLLEGE ADMISSIONS COUNSELING?
You have a lot of choices for college admissions counseling. Here’s what makes Wisdem different:
Personal touch. We're a family business, not a corporate behemoth. As such, our clients know who they're getting when they hire us. With Wisdem, there's no bait and switch.
We help you find your fit. At Wisdem, we focus on finding the right fit for your student. Ivy League universities and Ivy League-caliber universities are great. But they're not for everyone. Rather than adopt a tunnel vision focus on Ivies or Ivy-caliber schools, we'll help your student find his/her best fit – whether that is an Ivy League university, an Ivy League-caliber university, or elsewhere. We want to put your student in the best position to succeed not only in college, but in life.
Deeper level of guidance. By design, our advisors aren't recent college grads or high school guidance counselors. Our team boasts broad and rich professional experience, including executive roles at major corporations. This enables us to offer insightful perspective informed by extensive life and professional experience. Not just college years, or years working at a high school.
College admissions advising is at our core. We're not a tutoring company with college admissions as an add-on service, or a company that aims to be a jack of all education-related trades. We help students gain admission to competitive universities that are a good fit for them, and we help those same students (and other adults) reach their career or entrepreneurship goals.
