College application process allows students to reflect on their successes and failures. This self-discovery process is an important, but often overlooked step into a successful and confident young adulthood. We take pride in treating each advising session as an opportunity for students to master the self-awareness skill and work towards becoming the person who they truly want to be.

Dr. Yushien Wu, Co-Founder

College Application Planning

The team incorporates professional experiences as well as educational theories to help students:

  • Gain a comprehensive understanding about the college application process.

  • Create individualized college application plans.

  • Uncover unique factors, build confidence, and cultivate deep thinking skills. 

  • Review and polish required documents, such as personal statements, college essays, and thank you emails. 

  • Prepare for admission interviews.​


Our theory-driven sessions aim to help students develop a growth mindset with the goal to cultivate their unique factors. Through our one-on-one sessions, we foster deep thinking and professionalism in our students so that they will stand out. We will also provide interview training as well as suggestions on course selections, best-fit schools, and potential majors.

Individual and group advising are available.

Create Winning Essays

Our experienced and dedicated advisors will work with students to uncover their unique factors by asking critical questions that are meant to promote deep thinking and self-understanding. Based on each student’s profile, we will help them brainstorm best-fit contents to address each essay prompt. When an essay is ready to be polished, we will edit the essay to ensure that it captures the essence/best traits of our students.

A.Z. McLean, VA

Discussing with Dr. Wu's team about my college application allowed me to distinguish my “spike” as a communicator... And because of the increasing importance of standing out in applicant pools of several thousands nowadays, identifying my spike was absolutely essential for building a strong, centralized application.

E.L. Vienna, VA

Thank you so much for your guidance and advice during the past few months....I never truly took the time to stop and think about the why, the reason behind my actions.  Thank you for introducing to me the concept of self-reflectance.  I  hope I can continue learning from you in the future.

J.G. McLean, VA

The most effective part about the essay brainstorming session we had was how you were able to draw my most redeeming qualities out and verbalize them for my understanding so I could figure out what I should write about in my essays.....Thanks to your essay revision and brainstorming process, I was able to submit essays that I could be proud of!
