Onboard To College Shortcuts

We welcome you to College Shortcuts with our amazing welcome packets and look forward to connecting you with the expert advice you need in the college admissions process.


Organized Approach

We have an organized approach to getting all the applications done in an effective manner. We are also doing an in-person Application Fast Track Bootcamp in August when applications open to ensure all work is completed prior to 12th grade starting.


Grow Your Top Schools List

We specialize in helping students to build and expand their list of schools into ones that they’ll thrive in and love. Taking into account your child’s personality, strengths and preferences, we use our proprietary software and decades of firsthand experience at each school to help your child curate a top-notch list of schools.



We have developed a process for writing resumes that at-a-glance demonstrate what makes your child unique and a great fit. This stage often gives kids a lot of confidence as they reflect on their wonderful accomplishments to-date.


Letter of Recommendation Strategy

Letters of Recommendation are crucial in the college admissions process. We help your student pick the right teachers to get the best Letter of Recommendations.


Interview Preparation

We help your student gain the soft skills to wow admissions officers and give the best first-impression. We know how important the interview process is to get accepted.


Writing an Essay that Stands Out

We know what college admissions officers are looking for in the all-important college essay. We bring these two things together to help your child write an essay that is unique from all other applicants and true to what makes your child special.


Essay Editing To Final Draft and Submit Before Deadline

Get your essays edited by an editing team who has reviewed thousands of essays that have gotten students into top 20 universities year after year. Our team of editors know what it takes to stand out.

Interested in joining our exclusive Application Program with Neha?

Reservations for this program are first conducted with an assessment to ensure it is the right fit, and if you are chosen, you will need to make a decision to reserve your spot. Packages are customized based upon each student's needs.

How does the program work?

Application Fast Track will be conducted with Neha, founder of College Shortcuts for 2023, so we are taking limited students.

There will be both group, one-on-one sessions and office hours with Neha to ensure success through your entire college admissions journey.

Do we meet in person?

Yes! We are doing our exclusive Application Fast Track Retreat with Neha Gupta in Houston, Texas. The retreat is held August 2-5th, 2023, from 10AM-8PM, meals provided. During the retreat, students will finish ALL college admissions essays before their senior year. After completing the retreat, they should have their resume, essays, and interview prep ready to go by end of August, so they can apply early.

What is a sample day of a retreat like?
Are there spots left?

We currently have 4 spots left for students that are in 11th/12th graders in 2023 for the Application Fast Track Retreat. Our exclusive, one of a kind retreat will be a collaborative, creative environment with a curated group of amazing students. This creative writing experience will help students to get the best essays in the admissions process. We are highly selective and have hundreds of families that apply to our program, and we interview each family to ensure they are the right fit. We are reserving only a max of 30 students this year for the retreat. Please apply here for your interview at with our founder.

Neha made my entire college process easy and quick. I was able to create essays and a resume that stood out way beyond my peers. Mine essays were much deep in content and more compelling. I got into my number one choice!
