The Gold Standard In College Admissions Expertise


Our College Admissions Consulting Team Supports Both Students and Parents On This Journey

Dr. Aviva Legatt, founder of Ivy Insight, is the author of Get Real and Get In (St. Martin’s Press) and is passionate about helping students to achieve their potential. Dr. Legatt wrote the book to inspire a mindset shift about the college admissions process, changing the journey from a series of box-checking exercises to one that helps students to identify and elevate their unique strengths toward successful admission.  

At Ivy Insight, we assist students in discovering their College Admissions X-Factor™ – their unique differentiator that sets them apart and showcases their expertise and exponential impact. Our approach blends data-driven analysis with the collective wisdom from our Ivy League admissions committee experience, higher education expertise, as well as insights from Dr. Legatt’s extensive interviews with accomplished thought leaders such as Adam Grant, Henry Louis Gates Jr., and Dorie Clark.

When you work with our team, you have the opportunity to receive executive function coaching and hands-on support for the whole college application process, including our full essay service. The Emerging Leader Program pairs your student with a one-to-one research mentorship with someone from our network of 95+ professors. Our goal is to ensure that your student not only has a clear vision for their college goals but also has the tools and support to achieve them.

Our proven process maximizes the best predictors of college acceptance while supporting the student to achieve their greatest potential. As a result, our students have enviable acceptance results. Along with their parents, they experience clarity, guidance, and greater ease throughout this high-stakes journey.

The value we add at Ivy Insight is lifelong.

We help parents gain more time and energy during the hectic teen years.

We partner with the whole family to facilitate success in college admissions and in life.

Don’t go this alone.
