How Livius Prep Can Help

Livius Prep college counselors and admissions experts mentor you to help you create a comprehensive and personalized application packet that tells your unique story to the colleges and universities of your choice.

With an average caseload of 500 students, high school guidance counselors are faced with many daily priorities that create challenges to working with each student more deeply on the college process. Your Livius Prep college counselor’s sole purpose, on the other hand, is to provide a customized approach to YOUR college application process.

Our counselors provide in-depth advice on various aspects of the college application process including, but not limited to:

  • Crafting your personal college essay
  • Developing and refining a college list
  • Applying for financial aid
  • Identifying scholarships
  • Completing college applications directly and through The Common Application
  • Organizing a schedule for school visits and interviews
  • Strategically building an impressive resume and activity list

This individual focus on the college counseling process can help reduce the stress and anxiety felt by both students and their families.

Summer College Bootcamps

Livius Prep also offers intensive college counseling bootcamps that welcome you into the journey of the college process and take you through an A to Z of college admission and financial aid preparation.

Our goal is to empower you with the tools and resources you can use to continue learning, growing, strategizing and revising long after your bootcamp ends.

We believe that college admission is best understood and learned if you have the opportunity to step inside the mind of an admissions officer. Every “lesson” begins with multiple real-world case studies through which you will get a better sense of how your application will be perceived.

Lessons will be heavily interactive; in fact, we dedicate the entire fifth day to workshopping your specific application one-on-one with a counselor. Livius Prep Bootcamps cover all key components of the admissions process, including:

  • Academics and standardized testing
  • Common Application essay
  • Supplemental essays
  • Extracurricular activities list
  • Honors and awards list
  • Teacher recommendation letters
  • Counselor recommendation letters
  • Interview preparation
  • Application timelines (Early Decision vs. Regular Decision)
  • College admissions FAQ
  • Scholarships and financial aid
