SOS Admissions is a team of seasoned admissions consultants who have worked at many colleges and universities across the United States. Our admissions consultants understand the unique problems faced by international applicants to American colleges and graduate schools. With our diverse team, you are guaranteed to have an expert who has several years of experience dealing with cases similar to yours.
Our team works full time to set up appointments that fit your schedule so you don’t have to miss out on important meetings. Our appointment schedule is flexible to accommodate the needs of international applicants to American universities. However, please plan ahead because we become very busy near admissions deadlines.
Your consultant will offer you a customized college or graduate school application plan, detailed deadlines, and constant communication. We will ensure that you are fully aware of what needs to be done and when. We have received many testimonials informing us about how helpful our services have been for college and graduate school applicants. We have helped clients save time, reduce stress, and fit the entire process into their tight schedule.
Your initial consultation with our college and graduate school admissions experts is free. During this twenty-minute initial meeting, our admissions experts will make recommendations on the perfect approach for you based on your goals, professional experience, and educational background. If you continue with the process after this meeting, you will need to select a package.
The earlier you start, the better we can help you plan your entire application and the more likely you are to get admitted to the college or graduate school of your choice. With regards to college applications, SOS Admissions starts assisting students as early as the ninth grade to ensure there is no rush in the college application process. We also help clients starting in their senior year of high school. For graduate school, including business school and medical school, we suggest starting two years before your application, but we also help applicants starting just a few weeks before the application deadlines.
We do more than just editing essays. The truth is, most of the essay editors out there have never had the opportunity to sit on the admissions committee of any college or university. It shouldn’t be a surprise that most essay editors don’t have the insider knowledge of how to properly package the strengths of an applicant and maximize their chances of admission. We identify the strengths and weaknesses of our college and graduate school application clients and work hard to reduce their weaknesses and amplify their strengths. We will help you choose a compelling essay topic and write the essay, as well as assist in the creation of supplemental essays that place emphasis on the exact things that each institution looks out for in its applicants. We will also assist your reference writer in producing a letter of recommendation that is outstanding.

Certainly not! We understand that not everyone wants to go to an Ivy League university. We help applicants find the perfect college or university for their needs. We have helped students get into over six hundred American colleges and universities in the last ten years.

We have assisted applicants from eighty countries spread across the entire world gain admission into the top American college and universities. Past clients of our admissions consulting services include many high school students, college students, recent graduates seeking to go to graduate school, and experienced professionals returning to college or graduate school after years of working.
It’s never too early to start preparing for admission to a competitive college or graduate school. For college applications, SOS Admissions starts assisting students as early as the ninth grade to ensure there is no rush in the college application process. We also help clients starting in their senior year of high school. We have created an accelerated program especially for seniors applying to college. With regards to graduate school, we start helping students plan their medical school or professional school applications as early as freshman year of college. Of course, we can also help applicants applying shortly before the application deadline.
Those who purchase packages and then request refunds are billed the hourly rate for the services rendered and then refunded the balance (if any) of their package cost.
