We have been advising students our entire professional lives, Dr. Richardson as an anesthesiologist and patient advocate, and Dr. El Khashab as a brain surgeon and scientist. We joined forces because we love what we do and wanted to help students reach their highest potential and life-long goals.
No, Ivy Bound is NOT in any way affiliated with the Ivy League or any of their member schools. The founder of IvyBound, Dr. Michael Richardson is a proud Ivy League graduate, as are both of his sons. Ivy Bound does not intentionally or otherwise imply any direct or indirect association with the Ivy League or their members.
Ivy Bound is committed to forming a true partnership in which the client and consultant work together for the student’s benefit. We strive to continually re-think, re-build and re-engineer our world-class services to reach our highest potential and that of our clients. By accomplishing this, we aspire to become the destination of choice for high achieving students who aspire to attend premier, research universities and liberal arts colleges.
Your Comprehensive Package investment is $8800, while our a la carte fee is $350 per hour, a great investment when you consider the advantages of an elite institution’s education, resources and alumni network. We service eighth-graders to high school seniors.
A dream school is often a place you want to go “emotionally” as your first choice. But since you likely didn’t perform your due diligence, it is commonly a mismatch. A ‘best fit’ school is one where you first perform some soul searching and research. This is followed by logical thought and some common sense. Finally, you create or revise your college list not from naivete, but from personal insight that finds colleges that complements your preferences and goals better than the rest.
Our Central Mission is to honorably, respectfully, and professionally offer admissions advising for academically talented Americans, Far East Asians, South East Asians and Middle East students who aspire to attend to best institutions of higher learning in America, primarily medical schools and business schools.
We fundamentally believe, as did Socrates, that self-reflection is essential for students to understand their personality, interests, abilities, strengths so that they can discover their life’s purpose and to pursue careers and lives of no regret.
