Frequently Asked Questions

What is your review timeline? 
30 business days or less

If I receive a rating of Ivy Ready, does it mean that my overall application or a key area is perfect? 
A rating of Ivy Ready indicates that your application or a specific area meets the highest Ivy Ready Standards. Nevertheless, you should always seek to find opportunities to improve your application.

Does a rating of Ivy Ready mean that I will gain admission?
As the final admission decision rests with each institution, our review process does not imply nor guarantee acceptance or admission to any college or university.

What should I do after receiving the evaluation?
After the evaluation, students are encouraged to work with their guidance counselor to determine ways to improve their application.

Is your review process school-specific or can my application be reviewed by a specific former admission officer?
We believe in providing an evaluation that has the potential to enhance every application a student submits. Therefore, our review process is not school-specific and applications are routed at random.

What is your refund policy for reserved evaluations? 
We have a full refund policy for reserved evaluations that have not been redeemed.

What is your refund policy for submitted evaluations? 
Due to the substantial resources our counselors put into reviewing every application, there are no refunds after submission.
