The cost is based on the number of colleges that you select. Discounted packages are available. For more information, please see How It Works.

Based on our experience and analysis, your chances of being accepted are not significantly affected by applying early. While the statistics for many colleges show higher percentages of acceptance for early admission when compared to regular admission, this statistic must be put in perspective. The early admissions pool includes a significantly higher percentage of applicants whose chances of admission are higher than those of the average applicant; these students have outstanding credentials. In addition, most legacies and major donors apply for early admissions and are accepted. Likewise, recruited athletes who apply early are pre-selected by coaches and, therefore, more likely to be admitted. In short, when the differences between the early admission pool and the regular admissions pool are taken into account, a student's chances of admission are not significantly affected by applying early. An exception is in borderline cases in which applying early may make a difference because it shows the applicant's interest in the college.
Yes. Transfer students should input their background and achievements from high school including all standardized test scores, since colleges rely heavily on a transfer student’s high school record. However, because admissions officers also consider transfer students’ college record, instead of entering a high school GPA, transfer students should enter their college or community college GPA. Please note that the money back guarantee does not apply to transfer students.
While Go4Ivy's algorithms are not specifically designed for international applicants, students can get a ballpark idea of their chances of admission by using our service. Please note that the money back guarantee does not apply to international applicants.
