The Importance of College Visits

Here at Ivy, we have worked with many students on their college applications. They have applied to schools far and wide, pondered majors that run the gamut, and racked their brains concerning which schools would be "right" for them. 

One of the things that we have continuously recommended to our students is to visit the schools that they are most passionate about. Fancy brochures and websites do little justice when it comes to revealing the true character of a university. Colleges are live ecosystems that are comprised of students, faculty, a campus, and countless unique traits that can only be truly understood in person.

We at Ivy make it a point to provide private tours of universities for all of our college consulting students. We have also been building out our College Tour program, which will allow groups of students to visit universities in all major northeastern cities.
