What is Application Positioning™?

practiceApplication Positioning™ is a service provided only by The Ivy Dean™. It is the art of identifying a particular strength, talent or experience that would be most valued by a specific college and presenting it in a manner that maximizes the chances of admission. Colleges are not looking for the most well-rounded students, but rather the most well-rounded class.

Admissions decisions are based upon what unique contribution your child is able to make that will add to the diversity of the entering class.Only the most experienced college admissions professional who has headed an Admissions Office understands how the priorities of the university are considered in the decision-making process.

This insider insight of the process enables the identification of traits that will most help a student stand out. A guidance counselor from either a public or private setting does not have the depth of understanding to accomplish this successfully.
