The Web's best resource for Ivy League applicants.
For the entering class of 2020, admission to Ivy League universities will be more competitive than ever. Top schools will likely reject 80-90% of all candidates, including many with perfect grade point averages and test scores. How do they decide who gets in? Many applicants would kill to know the admissions "secret," the competitive edge that can help them gain acceptance.
In such a talented pool of applicants, exceptional writing (in a persuasive, well-conceived essay), augmented by credible third-party reference letters, often makes the difference between acceptance and rejection. Surprisingly, few applicants realize the importance of these factors in the evaluation process. Rather than write a compelling personal statement, they simply rehash their achievements in a boring, laundry-list style, leaving the impression that they are dull academic machines. Others don't know what the committee is seeking, so they decide to "play it safe" by submitting a generic essay that could have been written by anyone. Sadly, these half-hearted efforts rarely open the coveted Ivy League doors.
Fortunately, we can help. IvyLeagueAdmission.com was created by a team of Ivy League graduates who have served on more than 70 admissions committees for law school, medical school, business school, and undergraduate programs. Through this experience, we have acquired a thorough understanding of the selection process and the challenges that candidates face to compete in such an exceptional pool of applicants.
Our mission is to offer specific guidance to medical school, business school, law school, and undergraduate candidates on all aspects of the admissions process. We understand the factors that influence the acceptance/rejection decision, including the importance of the admissions essays and reference letters. We also know the most common (and preventable) mistakes that will ruin an applicant's chances.
We created IvyLeagueAdmission.com as a courteous, efficient, and cost-effective resource for clients who want to submit an exceptional application to the nation's top programs. The lifelong benefits of an Ivy League education are enormous. We would be honored to help you attain your professional and educational dreams!
In a typical day, an admissions officer will read between 20 and 50 application essays from candidates around the globe. Amazingly, few applicants will write anything convincing or memorable enough to stand out from the crowd. Despite their best efforts, they miss a golden opportunity to sell themselves.
From the committee's perspective, what makes a positive impression? We surveyed 30 admissions officers on what they expect to see in application essays and personal statements for medical school, law school, business school and undergraduate studies. Use their comprehensive feedback to guide your own original writing.

3. Writing Service for Application Essays

This service is an excellent choice for applicants who, for a variety of reasons, are unable to transform their own experiences into compelling essays that will succeed at the Ivy League level.
4. Writing Service for Reference / Recommendation Letters
In many cases, a candidate's emotional and interpersonal strengths can only be validated by a compelling third-party who has supervised him/her in a professional or academic capacity. Unfortunately, the writers of most reference letters do not know what the committee needs to hear in order to make an informed admissions decision. As a result, most of the letters we see are too short and vague to persuade the reader.
We are proud to offer a professional, top-notch writing service for reference letters for business school, law school and medical school applicants. Our writers are all Ivy League graduates with admissions experience in our respective fields. We will draft a compelling letter for you that conveys the maturity, tenacity and level of professionalism that the committee expects to see at this level of competition.
