AdmissionMax is a premier admissions consulting service run by Harvard graduates who help university applicants from all walks of life maximize their applications’ potential and secure admission into any program (university, transfer, professional and graduate school).  The personal statement is the cornerstone of the application and our team assists applicants in producing a stellar admissions essay that highlights the applicant’s strengths while minimizing his or her weaknesses in a strategically effective manner.

Every year gaining admission into the school of your choice is getting harder so you need to go the extra step in order to make your application “pop” and stand out. Admissions committees read thousands of essays from highly competitive applicants every year so it’s very important that your essay shows your strength and uniqueness so that you shine above the rest. We’ve helped countless people get into schools that were out of their range, often times with scholarships (see our testimonials), so take advantage of our services and invest in your future!

AdmissionMax has an excellent success rate. Many of our clients have not only received admission into their top programs but have even secured generous scholarships.  Some have also enlisted our services solely for scholarship applications and have enjoyed tremendous success.

Our admissions experts harness their extensive educations, which include multiple degrees from the most prestigious universities in the world, as well as years of experience as admissions experts to help maximize clients’ admissions potential.
