In 2011, Joseph and Sonny set out to create an organization they wished was around when they applied to colleges - an organization that provides no-nonsense advice from people who have recently been through the process.
Whether in the Bay Area, Texas, or the East Coast, we work together according to your schedule for BS/MD advising, college planning, college applications, or SAT/ACT prep.
Our students and parents consider our team the #1 aspect about us. Our counselors offers fresh insights and tactical advice from their own successful experiences, their help with mentoring previous students, and Ivy Planners' proprietary training. Our students relate well with counselors - many times our students see their counselor as an older sibling.
Our students have been accepted to Harvard, MIT, combined medical (BS/MD) programs, and many other prestigious programs. Check out our results and see what our clients are saying.
As an industry leader on combined medical programs, we bring a special perspective on combined BS/MD medical programs. We help our students with personal branding, obtaining research and shadowing positions, and the rigorous application process.
We help with all aspects of the process. We start with pre-application advising to help position our students to be competitive for their dream schools. During 12th grade, we help our students with the application process (college list, essay coaching, interview prep).
The Ivy Planners approach is tailored to each student as we focus on identifying and improving weaknesses, while reinforcing strengths for maximum results and greatest efficiency. We use official standardized exams, which reflect what our students see on test day.
