Event description

Description

When you’re competing against a pool of academically excellent students all fighting for one acceptance spot, it’s imperative that every aspect of your application is polished to perfection.

Wherever your dream school is, you’ve already asked yourself:

1. How do I stand out from the competition beyond just test scores and academics?

2. How do admissions committees decide between equally qualified students?

3. What are the most time efficient decisions I can make to improve my application?

4. What to do as a traditionally over-represented NYC applicant?

5. What to do if you are waitlisted at a university?

In the past 2 years, Crimson has helped students secure a myriad of offers to Ivy League Colleges and $24 million in scholarships.

Our global team of over 2,000 ex-admissions officers, strategists, and elite tutors have helped thousands of students get into their dream schools, and we’ll give you insider information to get you into your best fit university.


At this event, we’ll share knowledge that we’ve spent years acquiring. Our network has thousands of graduates and current students at top US colleges. We have access to thousands of successful Common App essays and résumés. We've read them and summarized the learnings so you don't have to.

She was awarded the Columbia Innovation Grant and is currently a finalist for the Tech.Co Startup of the Year competition. On top of this, she runs a conscious living blog, where she creates content related to eco travel, ethical consumerism and plant based diets.
