Applying for US schools requires a range of steps be taken. The 3 biggest mistakes people make are:

  • putting too much emphasis on grades
  • under-estimating the competition
  • leaving it until a few months before application deadline

No matter your level and the type of school you want to go to, ITS solves these by:

  • ensuring to max your potential SAT or ACT
  • ensuring you max your school grade potential
  • helping you realize all the other applicants will do the same

We then boost your chances and make you stand out by developing your personal journey and story and helping you write about it.
