What A Livius Student Has To Say…

“My daughter had such a good experience with the Livius SAT prep, that she decided it might be good to also have another point of view on the entire college application process. Livius then matched her with Jodi, an extraordinary college counselor who was able to additionally help my daughter make the most of the more qualitative aspects of her college application. My daughter knew that great SAT scores weren’t enough, and Jodi was an instrumental resource and coach for helping her identify and further articulate accomplishments/interests/passions into a holistic application that was even more compelling.

My daughter was grateful to be accepted to schools that were important to her, and most importantly to her top choices: Harvard and NYU. My daughter’s work with Livius was a very helpful component of all that she did to make compelling cases for her candidacy at the schools she was most interested in. “
