We make post-secondary planning
actually affordable

College Contact was started by two college students in 2019 to revolutionize the college counseling process. We were discouraged by private college counselors who were charging thousands of dollars ahead of expensive tuition costs. Now, we're on a mission to democratize access to higher ed. That's why our subscription based model is tailored to the level of college application support you need.

What our families say about us...

Hi! I worked with Abby and I got in early decision to my number one school. Claremont McKenna. Thank you for all your help!

Krish

I met one-on-one with a counselor to boost my activities section, as well as had editing to my personal statement. It worked and I got into my top choice!

Sarah

I came to my mentor struggling with coming up with a concrete essay topic. After the 1st ZOOM meeting, I had a solid essay outline. He offered great advice and was very honest about your essay and the college process in general. I've seen a large improvement in myself.

Rob

My mentor and I accomplished so much in the one session. I would recommend this to anyone

Katie

College Contact introduced me to the college process. Through this, I was able to remain on top of all of my applications while I was still submitting them. Now, it has helped me in calming my nerves as I began to receive my college decisions.

Samantha

The edits that Angel left me on my essay were very professional and gave me some great constructive criticism! I needed that push to really write a good essay and i am so glad i submitted my draft to this business! thank you!

Jessica

Loved working with these individuals!! Great experience and would HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

Cambyll

Immel

Rohan was amazing! He made very helpful edits and has great insight on my topic..

Jaylin

Your review of my essays and suggestions really helped me elevate my story and stand out. I believe my essays were the reason I got into schools like UC Davis and UC Irvine when so many were rejected this year.

Elan

College Contact has taken away 80% of the stress in our household. I have to say this has been one of the best things that we have offered our son during this process.

Susan

Anya Gupta was the BEST!!! She was so nice to work with and provided me with so much guidance while keeping things positive and helped me get into my schools!

Meleni

Diya was super fast and helpful, almost every comment was meaningful and there were so many in a good way. I also really appreciated the positive reinforcment.

Avery

My mentor Thomas helped me shorten my essay and effectively combine sentences. He gave me great insight into what college admissions counselors look for in essays and told me how I could use examples of my impacts to make them more interested. He was great!

Caity

I got into my first choice program and school! I was accepted, and committed, to Sacred Heart University in the MSPAS physician assistant program. They only accept 42 students and I will go right through without having to apply for grad school. Thank you so much for thinking of me and for your help!

Jillian

 Isabella was incredibly helpful in editing and revising both my Common App essay and Cornell supplements. Her unique perspective as an English major at Cornell really enhanced the quality of all pieces of writing submitted for review.

Alexander

I got into my top choice at Washington University in St Louis (WashU) for a premed track. Thanks so much for your help with the application process I really appreciate it.

Chhavi

Every mentor I worked with was absolutely amazing and provided me with unique and wonderful advice. I truly learned so much from each and every mentor and they made such an impact on my journey.
