BEST MONEY I’VE EVER SPENT
The best money I’ve EVER spent, period. I am attending U of M from out of state and did not want to risk not using every resource available to me.

DOWN TO A SCIENCE
Your process is truly individualized yet down to a science. I was wowed by your strategic approach in helping me put together my best possible application. The application process is daunting, and it was a HUGE relief to work with you. Thank you so much!

IMPOSSIBLE WITHOUT YOU
Thank you very much for all your help through the process. I genuinely think that without your guidance on my essays none of this would have been possible.
– New York University Student
You clearly know this process inside and out. You’re the best at what you do. I will be recommending you to all of my younger friends!
– Haas student
I know our son would not have gotten into USC without you. Your guidance was impeccable, and our son actually enjoyed the process and learned a lot about himself and his goals. Thank you!

You Are the Difference Maker
We truly believe you were the difference maker.

DON’T HESITATE TO HIRE
Good grades alone just don’t cut it anymore. I knew the essays were important and I’m SO glad we decided to hire The Application Authority. I know kids with similar credentials to my son and they didn’t get into U of M. Don’t hesitate to hire The Application Authority!
– University of Michigan parent
I was working with another company and was not satisfied with their services. Several friends mentioned having used The Application Authority, so I gave them a call. From the first call, I felt at ease and that I would be in good, knowledgeable hands. I could not get out of my other contract, but my family and I decided it was worth it to leave the other company behind and use The Application Authority; I am SO GLAD I did! The services exceeded my expectations, they helped so much, and I felt special and valued. Thanks to The Application Authority, I got into my dream school!
– University of Michigan Ross student
Thank you so much for all of your guidance. You helped me calm down and create a fantastic application. I never would have thought of the ideas you had.
