Answers to your most pressing questions

Yes. The “Be CollegeBound with IVYBOUND” private Facebook group has been specifically created for seniors (and their parents) who are applying to colleges during the 2022-2023 admissions cycle. The topics covered in this group are essentially designed to help seniors complete each and every component of their college applications, so they can submit their “strongest applications” when deadlines approach.

That being said, next year we will welcome 9th to 11th graders to a separate “Be CollegeBound with IVYBOUND!” Facebook group specifically designed to help them through their high school to college journey. It will cover topics that strengthen their admissions strategy, so when the time comes to apply senior year, they are well ahead of the curve.

Well, for one thing you are getting one-on-one college advising for fraction of the price. So it is affordable for all! Moreover, Ruchi S. Kothari will answer all your college admissions questions, provide guidance and support throughout the process, give access to a platform to strengthen your extracurriculars or passion projects, and offer multiple perspectives from college admissions officers, industry experts, and college students who recently went through this process.

A plethora of topics will be covered that pertain to completing and submitting college applications. These topics include: college lists, standardized tests, personal statement, supplemental essays, Common App, activity section, completing other online portals, letters of recommendation, international admissions, deferrals, waitlists, financial aid, industry insight, and much more.

If you put in the time and effort into listening to my Facebook lives covering various college application topics and completing the lessons, IvyBound sheets, exercises, and bonuses I provide, you will get closer to the results you are seeking. 

During your time within “Be CollegeBound with IVYBOUND: Class of 2023,” I do offer additional services, like college list analysis, essay review and editing services, mock interviews, activity section assessment, and other goodies for a special price to this community to achieve better and faster results. You are in no way obligated to purchase these additional products and services and can still get admitted to the colleges of your choice through my guidance in this group.

I cannot guarantee that you’ll get into the Ivy Leagues or any other college for that matter. But I can surely help you navigate through the college admissions process so that you may craft compelling applications that won’t be thrown out at the first go and actually stand out among the thousands of applicants who apply to the same colleges.

In fact, no one, no college counselor can guarantee admissions to any college. And, if someone is promising that, my friend, then I would be very careful working with them. I promise to support you on your college admissions journey to the best of my ability and help you admitted to the colleges of your dreams.

When you leave this private Facebook community, and if you have done your work, I am positive you will be all that much closer to enrolling in one of the colleges on your list. Our students, in general, have been admitted to the top US colleges. To name a few, this includes the eight Ivy Leagues (Princeton, Harvard, Yale, Columbia, University of Pennsylvania, Brown, Dartmouth, Cornell), Stanford, MIT, UCLA, UC Berkeley, Tulane, University of Miami, NYU, Northwestern, Barnard, William & Mary, Northeastern, and more. The acceptance list of my students will continue to grow with your admission into the colleges of your choice. Yeah!

You will have access to this highly-motivated and supportive community until this “Be CollegeBound with IvyBound: Class of 2023″ dissolves on May 31st, 2023, or if you terminate your membership before that. My goal is to help seniors through each part of the application process from finalizing their college list to submitting applications to ultimately enrolling in a college of their choice.

A “school-year” subscription enrolls you for nine months, from September 2022 to May 2023. For the price of eight months, you’ll pay a one-time fee of $400, receiving one month free or $50 off. A monthly subscription is for a minimal fee of $50/month, billed monthly. There is no special offers for monthly subscriptions.

No. You may not transfer your subscriptions, so choose wisely. Nevertheless, remember you are literally getting one-on-one college admissions counseling without spending thousands of dollars. Pretty great, right?

We hope you find value in this special community. We understand that making an investment to your educational future–even just $50–is a big decision. That’s why we’ve eliminated ALL RISK from this equation and do not require monthly members to commit to more than one month at a time! However, it is important to note that there are no refunds granted for “school-year” membership purchases due to the discount you will receive.

I would love that you share the value of this private Facebook group to your friends, family, and other high schoolers so that I may continue to help more students reach their education potential. Sharing the content of this community will not do justice and bring the same results to the student tagging along because I will not be able to work personally with the student and provide them the college admissions knowledge or constant support this student may need. So don’t do it. 

Moreover, copying or sharing any content of this private Facebook group, “Be CollegeBound with IvyBound: Class of 2022,” is copyright infringement and a violation of the law. So don’t commit a crime!

Please become a part of our social community and share the immense value and the results “Be CollegeBound with IvyBound: Class of 2023” brings to your friends, family, or contacts. Enable me to help more students reach their college(s) of choice. This would be super!

As an added incentive to my current students, if a friend or family member signs up for any IvyBound Consulting products or services, you will receive 10% off your future purchase of any IvyBound Consulting product or service (with a maximum redemption value of $200).
