College Advising Curriculum

We created the blueprint to get students into their dream schools. Our courses cover expert,
data-driven strategies that have helped thousands of students.

  1. College Applications

    From start to finish, we help students build every aspect of their application to make them competitive applicants to any university.

  2. Personal Statement and Essay Writing

    Our students learn how to showcase their unique strengths through their college essays. They’ll clearly demonstrate the unmatched value they’ll bring to any college campus. 

  3. Extracurricular Leadership

    Admissions officers look for authentic commitment. We help students identify ways to gain leadership positions in activities and organizations that they feel connected to.

  4. Building a Hook

    To stand out from tens of thousands of other applicants, our students learn how to develop a coherent theme across their involvement that aligns with their interests and highlights their talent.

  5. College Lists and Selection

    Based on a detailed evaluation of goals and abilities, we work with students to create a personalized list of reach, match, and safety schools. Once they get their acceptances, we help weigh the different options and choose the perfect fit.

  6. Recommendation Letters

    Our advisors explain how to select the perfect recommender who can speak to a student’s strengths and character—whether it’s a teacher, mentor, manager, or coach.

  7. Interview Preparation

    We ensure that students are confident and prepared to go into their college interviews. Our advisors lead mock interviews and reveal the most commonly asked questions.

Our Process

Colleges are only getting more selective. The Amikka method offers
a smooth path to any university in the country.


Free Consultation

Advisor Matching

We pair each student with an advisor who attended Harvard, UPenn, or Duke. Our team breaks down every aspect of the college application to reveal what admissions officers are looking for.



Our advisors guide students through every step of the way, serving as experienced mentors and coaches. Whether it’s building a college list or editing essays, we’ve got you covered.



Our students feel confident pressing the submit button. After students get accepted to their target schools, we help them weigh their options and choose the best fit.
