We are a proud member of National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) and Independent Education Consultants Association (IECA)

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

"There seems to be an assumption among people that because you are you, you should already know everything there is to know about yourself. In fact, understanding yourself can be one of the most challenging yet enlightening aspects of life, which is why I found my experiences talking with Dr. Wu's team about my essay revisions, interview training, and my application as a whole particularly valuable to my self-discovery."      A.Z.  (Yale, Class of 2022)                                                                                                                                      

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.

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.
