Success Stories

Our college counselors help high school seniors craft and submit excellent college applications.

David*

David came to Spark Admissions with a B+ average and actively involved in his boarding school. However, he did not know where to apply or how to demonstrate his achievements.

As he entered senior year, David’s family turned to us for help showcasing his unique strengths, managing the application process, and helping him complete exceptional applications.

We understand what college admissions officers seek in applicants, and we put that knowledge to work helping David hone his personal narrative, build his leadership profile, and become a strong applicant.

What We Did

David’s Spark Admissions counselor:

  • Helped him evaluate his diverse interests and determine an intended college major;
  • Suggested ways to create a richer academic profile;
  • Helped him start a new club at his high school to develop his leadership profile;
  • Scheduled weekly check-in meetings to make consistent progress on application essays;
  • Managed application timelines and deadlines and ensured application materials were completed to perfection.
