Competitive Advantage:  Admissions is a competitive sport!  However, unlike grade school everyone does not receive medal.  Just look at the number of students who are rejected every year from each Ivy League school.  Quite simply, you want a COMPETITIVE APPLICATION ADVANTAGE!  We know, understand and embrace the ultra-competitive nature of college admissions!  We develop application advisory strategies personalized for our camp attendees that are not found on the internet, in blogs, books and publications so that they can get accepted into the school of their dreams!  Most importantly, we use valuable and useful information, our knowledge-intelligence and diversity to direct our camp attendees to make the right decisions on their applications with certainty to win!

Interview Prep Sessions: We have discovered that even top students do not realize that etiquette and manners matter in college admissions.   It's not what you say, it's how you say it, the etiquette and manners involved, and your personal delivery.   Sometimes what you say and how you say may be misinterpreted. We help our attendees with the proper etiquette and manners in college admissions.

Color:  We add color (ROYGBIV) to your application and essays......because colorless applications are boring to admissions officers and can be easily rejected!  Adding color, we make your application and student profile more interesting.  Color matters!

​​Difference Advantage:  The reason why top students get rejected: "They sound unique just like everyone else". They read the same books, read the same community websites, see the same videos, and take advice from people who are just like themselves.  At ILABC, we are different.  By understand cultural, ethnic and geographic differences, we know how to make you articulate your difference and be "convincingly unique", yourself and original so that admissions officers can pick you out of the crowd.​  As an admissions experts who also focus on public relations and personal branding within the context of college admissions, we help attendees identify and refine their personal image so that they can differentiate themselves from other qualified applicants! The cultural, intellectual, racial and professional diversity within our team helps us identify what makes our camp attendees stand out!

WOW-Factor  is that certain "je ne sais quoi" that adds extra flair to an application as well as everything you do in your college admissions journey. It's a sort of thing that is hard to name, but is easy to spot by an admissions officer/or committee. Your charisma, confidence, motivation, initial impression, appearance, communication skills, attitude, self-esteem, authenticity, presence, harmony, rhythm and vibe all contribute to your wow factor.  We help each attendee develop his/her wow factor so that our admissions strategies help applicants spotlight their unique characteristic(s) that make admissions officers say “Wow! We want this student!”
