“H&C’s commitment and diligence to making sure that their students get accepted into their dream schools is exceptional. I credit Ian’s approach to building the most compelling and concise personal narrative and Pierre’s focus on creating the most persuasive resume with my acceptance to my dream school. I was able to become the first student from my school to get into an Ivy League school since 1992. Ian’s and Pierre’s combined efforts offer a unique perspective into the admissions process that ensures their students have the best chance of getting accepted.”

At H&C, we know that great grades and test scores aren’t enough when it comes to applying to highly selective colleges. This is why we’ve developed a unique method to help students identify their talents and passions, and harness their entrepreneurial spirit to take on ambitious and impactful projects outside the classroom—projects that make a real difference in the college admissions process.
We have hands-on experience in setting up impactful organizations, in editing, in storytelling, and in educating. We don’t just know a good applicant when we see one; we can help you become one.
We’ll help you build a strong CV in the years preceding your applications to Master's and Ph.D. programs, or provide guidance in writing your statements of purpose and supplemental essays. We’ll help you put together a comprehensive list of schools, prepare for faculty interviews and campus visits, and reach out to faculty early on to make sure you’ve got someone on your side at your favorite graduate programs. Ace your graduate apps, just like we did.
