Cialfo helped me understand that I needed to express myself clearly [in my essays]. [They] helped me strategise my college application [and helped me answer] every single question with new aspects of myself. This really helped admissions counselors diversify the different perspectives of looking at me and I think that really made a difference.

Cialfo mentors are very friendly, and this is what made me very comfortable in my interactions with them... the channels of communications were very effective, very open, and I think it was through this that I could really get down to the crux of the matter and work on the things that needed the most work... and I think this is one of the main things that sort of allow me to express myself more throughout my application.

CIALFO has helped me process my thoughts through personal conversations with very genuine and approachable mentors. These conversations were pivotal in helping me to develop a better understanding of myself, to really think about what I want and to decide on options that I might be suitable for.

I had no idea about the admissions process and juggling admissions work with IB prep was way too much. CIALFO taught me to systematically think about the process and encouraged me to build my portfolio\resume. I would not have been able to manage it on my own.

Just after my first session I had a very good idea of how to structure my application and write my essay. I didn't know what to write for my essay but Justin helped me realize that I was excited talking about theatre and that was my essay. The experience was really worth it.
- Yi Hai Su, Mechanical Engineering at Northwestern University
My very first version of the essay was a disaster. But Justin guided me on how to go about it, he gave me a lot of good feedback and helped me a lot, which was the most helpful part for me! I got the school I wanted to get into just because of the help from CIALFO.
- Faye Wang, Psychology at University of Washington
CIALFO was able to help me narrow down colleges to certain set that were tailored to my needs. They also helped me with my essays as I couldn't think of a unique topic to write about. CIALFO made the process a lot easier and that helped me get into one of my top choice college
- Saahil Koradia, Business Administration at Boston University
In one session I was exposed to 3 major blind spots that could have severely crippled my application. Unless you have a very clear idea of how you want to craft your profile in the eyes of the admissions board, I would say CIALFO’s consulting services are a worthy investment.
