Your child is a unicorn. Unicorns know how to stand out from the crowd.

College Shortcuts is results driven and can help your unicorn shine during the college admissions process.

What does this mean? It means that when your child sends in their application, it won’t land at the bottom of some slush pile in the back office, because…

95% of our students get accepted into at least 1 of their top 3 dream schools!

Like Michael here.

Michael was one of our best clients. He was self-driven, dedicated, and passionate! Together we wrote incredible essays about his passion for pre-med. He was willing to listen and learn as we went through the process. And he did his homework.

Michael knew that the only “SHORTCUT” we offer is honing the admissions process.

It does not mean:

  • Hacking through the necessary work
  • Slacking off, thinking that we do all the work for them
  • We suggest life is full of shortcuts

It does mean that we provide a road map for families that have no idea what the application process requires to get their child into their favorite school!

We understand that your child is a unicorn in the sea of applications. Does your dream school know it?

The application process seems unfair to many who:

  • Don’t know the process
  • Get good scores, but are still not accepted
  • Don’t go through the college process in the U.S.

Many families struggle with:

  • Essay writing for admissions
  • Lack of connections to their school of choice
  • How to pitch their child in a unique way

We excel at taking on your struggles and alleviating your stress throughout the entire admissions process.


How do we make sure your child doesn’t get lost among so many other college hopefuls?

We pair them with college consultants who can help add just the right amount of glitter and shine to their applications. This makes it so admissions officers can't wait to accept them to their university!

Families that work with College Shortcuts, watch their child:

  • Present better
  • Develop more confidence
  • Stand out with their unique projects and great essays

Holding that acceptance letter in hand is powerful, and we want your unicorn jumping for joy!

Get college consulting in the comfort of your pajamas.
