The site is filled with insights related to applying and creating strong applications (from the perspective of an admissions insider). Inside the Adcom helps prospective students find and apply to the right universities to meet their educational and career goals. We follow a proprietary process that helps students define their future goals and translate them into a strategy about what schools and degree programs are suitable matches. Customers have been admitted to many different types of programs and universities (a partial list is below). If you would like to speak about possible coaching for your applications, contact us using the form above.

Inside the Adcom was launched by a career admissions officer and former Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid to help applicants navigate the complicated admissions process successfully. There are many parts that might seem confusing to applicants, and a mistake on your application could reduce your chances of admission.

Our experience can not be matched by other companies. Our practices and approaches are based on having been on the admissions committee and review of thousands of applications. We base our process on the evaluation criteria of admissions committees that evaluate your applications. You get the most accurate and useful guidance to present your profile in the strongest way possible.

Regardless of where you live, you can benefit from Inside the Adcom products or services. Materials and products are intended to help the self-motivated applicant, while personal coaching is available to those that need additional support. We can communicate with you via video and audio conference, and you can complete your application with the help of an expert in the comfort of your home.

We hope this site brings you valuable information that you may not have received through a typical application process and encourage you to comment or ask a question that you have been looking for an answer to.
