AP Guru has been extremely instrumental in getting to the college of my dreams! By guiding me in every step of the way - whether it was the college essays or finding the right fit for me- they made sure all the details were perfected. Since the beginning of my college journey, the best part about AP Guru was their holistic guidance and the personal attention that was given to me. This made me feel supported even when things got extremely taxing. Today I can look back and say the college application process which is supposed to be extremely “stressful”, actually turned out to be pretty smooth for me all thanks to their support in every aspect of the process. The application process is extremely crucial and I strongly believe the right mentorship and guidance are key for making it eventful, fortunately, AP Guru provided me exactly that!

I would like to thank the AP Guru counseling team for theirimmense support in my college admission journey. Though I have had goodacademic and extracurricular achievements during my school life, it’s still noteasy to get accepted in a world-renowned university or college unless a studentgets the right advisors, because the best universities around the world havedifferent expectations from its college applicants be it USA, Canada, UK or EU.And believe me, it can get very complex right from choosing the right collegesto apply to, to the acceptance of offers of admissions. For a seventeen-year-old,doing it while attending a demanding school is a very tough job. I am deeplygrateful to my counselors, essay coach, and research mentor as they were alwaysthere to help me. Their support and wisdom at each and every step of thisjourney helped me make the right choices. I will never forget this rewardingexperience.

Frequently Asked Questions

When is the best time to get started?

The earlier, the better! When students come to us right before it is time to apply to college, there is only so much we can do with the experiences, credentials, and academic profile given to us. We can certainly help these students strategize and craft as compelling an applications as possible, but we are given experiences and data points that cannot be altered.

When students come to us early in their admission process, we can help students strategize early, build their profiles, and stand out from their peers. We help students explore and develop their academic interests, engage in unique and meaningful extracurricular activities, strengthen their personal qualities and leadership skills, and ultimately, position them to get into the best schools possible.

How are parents involved in the process?

We are responsible for liaising with the family—sending meeting reports to parents, ensuring that all lines of communication are open, and resolving any issues that arise quickly. Applying and attending university is a big family decision that we respect and treat with the utmost compassion, care, and attention.

Do you only work with students applying to top universities?

We work with all students, regardless of standardized test scores, GPA, university ambitions, and career goals. Our only requirements are that the student and family have realistic expectations, and that our students work hard and engage in the process with us.

At AP Guru, we are just as proud of the students at the bottom of their classes who outperform the odds to get into top 100 schools as the students who get into the Ivy League.

What is the role of an admissions counselor?

An admissions counselor can supplement your school counselor’s efforts by providing additional personalized guidance throughout the college admissions process. This can include working with you to develop a balanced college list, helping you create your activity list, preparing you for interviews and college visits, explaining the admissions process to you, and helping you with brainstorming and editing components of the application. At AP Guru, we guide students and their families through every step of the admissions process so that they can identify the schools that will be the best academic and social fits for them; then we work with  students to help them portray the best and most comprehensive representation of who they are to the admissions committees of their chosen schools.

Will you guarantee admission?

Do we guarantee that students have the best chance of getting accepted by using our services? Absolutely. Do we guarantee that students will get admitted? Absolutely not. Guaranteeing admission is impossible as we cannot control what goes on in the admissions office. What we do guarantee is that students who engage with our counselors and our curriculum, will leave this process with a better understanding of who they are, what they hope to accomplish, and how to succeed in school and beyond.

Do you help with admissions to institutions across the world?

Yes! Our AP Guru college counselors specialize in US, Canada, Singapore, and UK admissions. If you'd like to apply to a university elsewhere, we can certainly help you with that too.
