Graduate Admissions | Methodology
From the moment that you decide to apply to graduate school until you accept an offer from the school of your choice, Stratus Prep guides you through every step of the admissions process.
In order to maximize the probability that you will be admitted to your dream school, our talented and experienced admissions counselors prefer to guide you throughout every step of the graduate admissions process: school selection, introspection, crafting your personal story, essay outlining, essay editing, resume and short answer editing, interview preparation and financial aid negotiation. This is most efficiently done through one of our all-inclusive packages which are based on the number of schools to which you are applying and each school’s requirements.
If you prefer, we also offer hourly admissions counseling focused just on one aspect of the aforementioned process.
