Our Mission:

Helping students realize their dreams

Our comprehensive approach equips candidates with the tools they need to navigate their own unique admissions experience.

Located in New York City since 2006, Stratus Prep is a premier admissions counseling firm committed to helping clients achieve their dreams of going to college, business school, law school and graduate school. Stratus Prep has served thousands of clients from over 3 dozen countries.

Our three-pronged approach provides each candidate with a counselor who will be their “coach” throughout the process, a team of admission experts to help support the process and an account manager to provide the highest level of customer service in the industry. This approach has helped students gain admission into all of the top schools worldwide for undergraduate and graduate work including: Columbia University, UCLA, Harvard Business, Stanford, Wharton, The Sloane School, as well as dozens of others.

Our team of expert counselors are, themselves, graduates of top schools including Harvard, Stanford,  Columbia, Duke, MIT, and other top schools.  Many of our counselors have direct admissions experience from these top rated schools and all of our counselors have at least two years of teaching experience.

Numerous major publications have sought Stratus Prep’s expertise on admission to graduate schools and test prep, including The Wall Street Journal, The Financial Times, Fortune, and Bloomberg BusinessWeek and US News and World Report.

We believe that every student deserves a personalized approach, efficiently developed and strategically tailored to make their application stand out amongst the thousands of other applicants from around the globe. We are committed to helping every client present their best self in order to stand out amongst the crowd.

  Using Stratus Prep to assist with my applications was one of the best decisions I made all year! As someone from an atypical background and not many friends/coworkers with MBAs, it was critical that I had someone to guide me through the rigorous process. They just helped me portray who I am in a way that would resonate with Admissions Committee members!
