As acceptance rates plummet, and scholarships are more competitive than ever, College Quo works behind the scenes for YOU.
We've helped many students to secure acceptances and huge scholarships to universities around the world — just like Leigha, pictured here, who received a scholarship worth USD $70,000 per year to Middlebury College, a top liberal arts college in Vermont, USA.
Leigha took a gap year after not receiving the acceptances that she wanted. She took the leap and signed up with College Quo. We helped her to revamp her essays, and curate her application in the most compelling way possible. The results paid off tenfold.
WHY COLLEGE QUO?
WE ARE GREAT AT WHAT WE DO, AND WE LOVE DOING IT.
