9th, 10th and 11th Grade Students Targeting US, UK, or Canadian Universities
You may find yourself asking some of these questions:
- What are college admissions officers really looking for?
- What kinds of grades and test scores do I need to qualify for my dream school?
- Do I need to join more clubs or play a sport to get into a good university?
- How should I be thinking about my summer activities?
- When should I start preparing for my applications?
Working with former admissions officers from Ivy League universities and Top Ten Liberal Art Colleges, Pasifik Consultants take the guesswork out of preparing for colleges. In what can be a stressful and confusing process, we assess your admissions chances and explain everything you need to know to reach your goals. We set specific academic and extracurricular goals for you to work towards and help you map out a timeline to keep you on the right track. We do not give cookie-cutter advice but work to develop and highlight your unique circumstances, interests, and passions.
Research shows that the implementation of strategies is increased many-fold when coupled with one-on-one coaching. We at Pasifik Consultants emphasize the importance of coaching not only because we believe that you will be more likely to accomplish your goals with it but also because you might have pressing questions that are important to address along the way. Work on summer program applications, plan your testing timeline, get help securing internships and volunteer opportunities, and ask any question that comes up with one of our fantastic counselors. If you sign up for coaching, you will meet regularly with a Pasifik Consultants counselor experienced in relating to high school students (and their parents) to make sure that you are meeting deadlines and following through on suggestions outlined in your Roadmap to Admissions.
We at Pasifik Consultants will work with your specific preferences and even personality type to compile a strategic college list. Each college list includes a well-researched list of schools with descriptions of how each school matches your educational goals. We will also direct you to institutions similar to your favorite schools, ensuring that you will be satisfied at even your “safety” schools.

When you work with Pasifik Consultants on your college essays, you will not only walk out with clean and polished essays, you will also grow in confidence as a writer, further preparing you for your studies in English academic environments. We firmly believe that every student has an interesting story to tell, and we will work with you to make sure you present yourself in your best light.
Essay consulting usually starts in the summer when you will complete at least 2 essays and also finalize most of your Common, OUAC, or UCAS Application before the school year even starts. Work on essays continues through December with weekly Essay Workshops led by expert instructors. You can attend as many Essay Workshops as you need to in order to finish the package you’ve signed up for.
In addition to an outstanding application, applicants to many universities also need to learn how to shine in admissions interviews. Increasingly, interviews are playing a larger role in admissions, as more colleges have started offering interviews abroad and every point of personal contact takes on more significance.
Every year, students also need assistance with dealing with deferral or wait-list decisions. Rest assured, we at Pasifik Consultants will be with you every step of the way, helping you navigate these obstacles and opportunities.

Our counselors also work with you to set do-able deadlines and help you manage your work load so that your applications are submitted in time and so that you still have time for your school work and other activities! Each application and essay is submitted only after careful review from one of our counselors, and you can breathe easy knowing that you are not alone in this application process.
