We also consider factors such as preferred location, climate, and budget to create a best fit list for each student and determine if the student should apply Early Decision, Early Action, or Regular Decision. Our unique process ensures a 100% guaranteed success rate.

Sage’s consultants have helped students with thousands of applications for universities in the US, UK, Canada, Europe, and Asia, and they will help you avoid common pitfalls filling out every application and make sure that you complete them before deadlines.
