Welcome, and thank you for visiting.
My name is Craig Meister, and over the last fifteen years, I’ve helped thousands of students and parents master the American undergraduate admissions process. Now it’s your turn.
How have I become one of the world’s most trusted sources of expert and unfiltered undergraduate admissions guidance? The answer is quite simple: my results.
I understand that individuals who are in the process of determining and pursuing their post-secondary goals have a variety of guidance and support options from which to choose; yet, I confidently assert that the quality and professionalism of my one-on-one college admissions coaching and consulting services are unsurpassed by anyone, anywhere. I give you more than a helping hand; when working with me you gain a committed, innovative, and insightful advocate. My mission is simple: meet students where they are in order to take them where they want to go.
My students earn acceptance into the most selective colleges and universities in the world, and these same students are annually awarded millions of dollars in merit-based scholarships. With an intense focus on return on investment, I also work extremely hard to ensure that all of my clients end up in post-secondary environments that are as attractive for their educational efficacy as they are for their likelihood to be deemed financial and experiential assets for the duration of clients’ lives.
As Seen In
Whether determining where a student’s passion lies or advising a student who is choosing between several letters of acceptance, I provide on-going strategic counsel to students and families throughout the transition from high school to what comes next.
Best of all, working with me is as easy as 1-2-3:
STEP 1: ENGAGE IN COMPREHENSIVE STUDENT ANALYSIS
My initial review process assesses each student’s post-secondary prospects based on his or her academic, standardized test, extracurricular, and personal history to date while also addressing areas of potential improvement. By developing a personalized game plan and basing college list formation on the interests and needs of the individual student, I maximize the chances that each student will ultimately reach his or her goals and meet with the most happiness and success.
STEP 2: ACQUIRE THE KNOWLEDGE YOU WANT – WHEN YOU WANT IT!
I offer both laser and comprehensive college admissions coaching services that work around your busy lifestyle and ever-changing schedule.

STEP 3: RELAX
I’ve got you covered! No high school counselor, academic teacher, or ACT or SAT prep tutor can provide anything close to the personalized attention, determined effort, and comprehensive guidance that define my college admissions coaching services. The process of determining your path after high school can be incredibly time-consuming and stressful, but it does not have to be when you have the right support; I guide clients through the self-discovery, search, and post-secondary selection process by giving students the attention, consideration, and confidence they need to make the right choices for themselves.
