The ivyO Difference
When you work with ivyO, youll see that we do things differently from many of the other US/UK university admissions consulting companies. You may ask, how so?

Well, ivyO stands out from the rest on many fronts for starters, ivyO's fair and affordable fee structure will make your college admissions journey much easier and stress-free.

Also, ivyO's powerful service offerings, spearheaded by the ivyO Strategic Consultation, will maximize your prospects of getting admitted to your dream university, whether your goals are set on prestigious UK Universities or the US Ivy League, ivyO is here to help!

The great thing about the ivyO Strategic Consultation is that for one low, fixed fee, your ivyO university admissions expert will help you optimize every aspect of your student profile and sharpen your applications.

Each ivyO Strategic Consultation is individually customized for one particular student as no two students are the same. The ivyO Strategic Consultation is designed for students in Grade 7-12 inclusive, who aspire to attend highly selective universities in the US or the UK. The ivyO Strategic Consultation also works very well for international students, who plan to undertake their studies in Australia.

In short, among US/UK university admissions consulting companies, ivyO stands out because of the ivyO Difference, which is encapsulated by the 4 C's:

At ivyO, only qualified consultants who are members of the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC), and/or International ACAC work with ivyO students and their parents. NACAC and International ACAC are highly respected associations in the college admission counseling profession.

While we have undergraduate students among our valued staff members, they are not involved in consulting ivyO students or their parents.

Many of the other high-profile operators in college admissions say nothing about their fees on their websites. Perhaps they're worried that if their exorbitant prices were disclosed on their sites, potential clients will be scared off. That's why at their “free consultation”, their salesperson will check you out and try to talk you into signing a packaged service contract costing tens of thousands of dollars for "programs" that your student may not even need.
Whereas at ivyO, we are passionate about keeping our fees as affordable as possible for families to help make your child's dream of attending a top US institution, like those in the Ivy League, or an outstanding UK university an affordable and accessible dream. While we invest heavily in technology, R&D, and human capital — in particular, qualified and dedicated college admissions consultants we dont have any salespeople. Instead, we achieve exceptional value for families by leveraging technology and maintaining low margins.

Indeed, by leveraging technology, ivyO has leapfrogged the status quo and elevated efficiency to a whole new level. Case in point, it might take other college consulting companies countless meetings and expensive hours to gather information about their clients, often asking similar questions over and over again. Then those operators incur even more time collating, recording and digesting the information. While such practices are clearly inefficient, those operators won’t complain — it’s all chargeable hours — that means more dollars in their pockets. But for the families, it’s like throwing money into a big, black hole.

On the contrary, by leveraging technology here at ivyO, all the data collection, data processing, and data management as depicted above are predominantly automated via our innovative and proprietary Student/Parent Profiles. This initiative saves the ivyO team a great deal of time, and we pass on every dollar of those savings to our clients. That’s just another ivyO Difference — keeping the cost of college admissions consulting as affordable as possible for families.

Moreover, it’s not in our corporate DNA to pigeon-hole prospective clients. With ivyO, no one ever sits through a free consultation just to find out the cost of our services. It’s all clearly set out on our website.

Parents who are registered users of our site have full access to the ivyO Solutions page. Unregistered visitors can view the cost of our services on ivyO Bundled Solutions. If you have any questions about our service offerings, set up your ivyO account below and Message Us.

ivyO consultants are not interested in “closing deals” for the sake of earning fat commissions. They choose to focus on the work they love — delivering to families personalized ivyO Solutions.

ivyO promotes a fee structure that’s remarkably transparent, flexible and affordable. It's simply pay-as-you-go, and you keep full control over the amount of professional fees you invest with ivyO.

In other words, you only pay for services that your student actually needs, nothing more. At ivyO, you'll never be asked to pay tens of thousands of dollars, years in advance, for "programs" your student might never need or even want.

With ivyO on your side, you no longer have to commit tens of thousands of dollars from day one. Cool.

Another compelling reason to choose ivyO is that once you sign up for your bespoke ivyO Strategic Consultation, you will be given personalized, powerful and comprehensive guidance for your student's university admissions journey. And you may not have to spend another dollar on college consulting fees. Period.

Compared to the exorbitant fees charged by some of the other college admissions consulting companies, the ivyO Strategic Consultation represents a truly outstanding value proposition. As a cost-benefit analysis, it’s a no-brainer. That’s one of many reasons why so many students and parents tell us with great enthusiasm, “I want in,” as they sign up for the ivyO Strategic Consultation.

Students and parents entrust us with their private, personal, and sensitive information; we take very seriously our responsibility to safeguard the confidentiality of their information and will never use it for marketing or promotional purposes. The only reason we access such confidential material is to enable us to diligently undertake our work for students and their parents.

One of our first tasks in working with you and your family is to ease your anxiety, stress, and fear with regard to college admissions. Don’t get us wrong, the college admissions process is never a walk in the park, but it need not be a path of tension, turmoil and tears.

While some unscrupulous operators seek to exploit your fear of college admissions, we help cut through the maze, the mess, and the myths of that daunting process.

Instead, we'll show you a new perspective, a fresh look from a different angle at the trail ahead; you’ll see that choosing a college is a riddle with not one, but many solutions. In reality, there are more than a few universities where you will thrive, grow, and be happy and healthy. Once any undue pressure is reduced or removed, it'll become much easier for you to relax and actually enjoy navigating your way through the college admissions journey with crystalline clarity.

There you go, the 4 C's of the ivyO Difference

There you have it, the 4 C’s of the ivyO Difference, which epitomize the student-centric ways in which we conduct our work every day. Here at ivyO, we aren’t motivated by revenue or profit, but by our conviction to create a positive, meaningful and enduring impact in the lives of others. It gives us immense pleasure and satisfaction to see ivyO students, empowered by their remarkable ivyO Strategic Consultation and backed by additional support readily available at BaseCamp, develop a deep sense of quiet confidence as they proudly stride towards and gain admission to their best-fit university, which may happen to be an Ivy League school in the US, Oxbridge in the UK, or a top university in Australia.
