About Me

Founder, IvyCollegeAdmit

My name is Eric Eng, and I live and breathe college admissions. I understand college admissions inside and out – especially when it comes to getting into the top universities like the Ivy League, Stanford, UChicago, MIT, and Caltech.

Building a strong academic and extracurricular profile is an important factor when it comes to college admissions, whether it means strong GPA, test scores, regional and national academic competitions or powerful extracurricular activities to present a “hook” in your application. But that’s not the whole story. Why does a student with a low GPA sometimes get admitted, while another student with a 4.0 and 1600 SAT get rejected? The answer lies in the application.

By working closely one on one with me, you will craft the most powerful and thought-provoking application that demonstrates your personal qualities, leadership, intellectual curiosity, and contribution to your community. With a stellar track record that is unmatched, I provide unparalleled expertise in the college application process, in particular personal statements, extracurricular involvement, academic guidance, summer programs, and interview preparation.

I graduated from Princeton University with a B.A. in Mathematical Economics and have a decade of experience helping students gain entrance into the world’s most competitive academic institutions. Many of my students have won awards in national competitions (USAMO, Siemens, Intel) under my guidance.
