The US College Admissions Journey

is like Mountaineering

Scale your Summit with ivyO

is all you need for your US college admissions journey
At ivyO, we're focused on helping students like you stand out from the crowded applicant pool and gain admission to your best-fit university. We do that through the innovative ivyO TrailMap; it's your personalized and comprehensive Strategic Action Plan of no fewer than 50 pages of customized analysis, strategies and recommendations. It will:
  • Empower you, step-by-step, on how to find, develop and showcase your college admissions X-Factor; be strategically positioned head and shoulders above other applicants, and present your compelling and captivating story to admissions officers at elite institutions like Harvard, Stanford, MIT, Yale, Princeton, the University of Pennsylvania, Columbia, Brown, Cornell, Dartmouth, Georgetown, USC and UCLA.
  • Show you how to skillfully navigate around all the pitfalls hidden in the college applications process.
  • Match you to your tailored list of 12 colleges for application, evaluation, or research purposes subject to your current school year.
  • Comes with two Zoom consultations of 90 minutes each with an ivyO college admissions counselor who is a member of NACAC.
The ivyO TrailMap is designed for students in Grades 7-12, who aspire to stand out from the rest and be admitted to a top US college. If that sounds like you, sign up for your personalized ivyO TrailMap today!
To ensure that your family derives maximum benefits from your ivyO journey, we offer two optional Workshops to complement your personalized TrailMap — ivyO Compass and ivyO BaseCamp:
  • ivyO Compass is designed to help parents and students breeze through the TrailMap Questionnaire (TMQ). It works particularly well for some international families, busy parents, or families who simply want additional support. The ivyO Compass consultation can be conducted in English, Mandarin or Cantonese.
  • ivyO BaseCamp is where Strategy Implementation and Strategy Execution take place. At BaseCamp, your dedicated college admissions counselor will work with you and help you put your strategic plan into action, and provide guidance on specific matters or issues of your choice.

With both ivyO Compass and ivyO BaseCamp, you only pay as you go for services you actually need. Nothing more, and there is no long-term contract. Isn't that good?

Here at ivyO, we do things differently from many other US university admissions consulting companies. Paraphrasing author Seth Godin, we stand out like a “Purple Cow” because of our remarkably innovative service offerings, spearheaded by the ivyO TrailMap. The Purple Cow's presence is easily spotted across our work, giving rise to The ivyO Difference, encapsulated by the 4 C's:

At ivyO, only qualified US university admissions counselors who are NACAC members work with ivyO students and their parents. Undergraduate students among our staff are not involved in counseling families.


Parents beware: Don't fall victim to unscrupulous operators who try to lock you into draconian contracts costing tens of thousands of dollars. At ivyO, just pay as you go for services your student needs — better value, fairer terms, and much easier for families.


ivyO will never use our students and parents' personal information for marketing or promotional purposes.


ivyO helps students and parents cut through the maze, the mess, and the myths of the US college admissions process; showing families a new perspective, with crystalline clarity, of the trail that leads students to their best-fit university.

Empowered by their remarkable ivyO TrailMap and with additional support on tap at BaseCamp, ivyO students beam with pride and confidence as they turn their college admissions dreams to reality.
