Meet the Teacher

Taylor Reneau, Harvard College (BA Economics '16)

Hi there! So a little about me...

I'm Taylor, and it would be a pleasure to coach you through the process of applying to the Ivy League schools. Born in Wisconsin and raised in Ohio, I know the struggle of applying from a school district where few students get into the Ivies. In fact, in my high-school district... only about one kid gets into Harvard every 10 years!

Through revising Ivy-bound essays and publishing Ivy-related videos on my YouTube channel with nearly 200,000 subscribers, I've helped thousands of high-school students around the world get into the colleges of their choice... including some of my younger Harvard classmates! So whether you're hopeful for Harvard, pining for Princeton, or brooding over Brown, I'm set to make that dream become a reality.

How Much Does Ivy Advise Cost?

Here's the thing:

When you get into an Ivy League school, the university wants you to come.

Here's the second thing:

Ivy League schools are some of the most well-endowed universities in the United States.

If you put two and two together, it's clear you shouldn't let financial need keep you from applying. The upside of getting into one of the Ivies is worth more than its weight in gold.

Not only do Ivy League graduates make $40,000 more per year, on average, immediately after graduation than students who graduate from all other 4-year US colleges... but they also benefit from receiving a world-class education, joining a network of future global leaders, and gaining access to renowned professors and cutting-edge resources.

If you get into an Ivy, you are set for life. Those four years instill a lifelong confidence in you, ensuring you that you can accomplish your wildest dreams. You'll walk the halls that Nobel laureates and US presidents roamed, and you'll carry the name of your alma mater for the rest of your life. Having an Ivy on your resume truly opens doors for you in a way that very few other schools in this world can do.

Getting accepted to an Ivy League school is nothing short of life changing.

An experience like that? Is invaluable. It's truly priceless.

That's why the true value of the course is $10,000. That's the base of what most Ivy League consultants charge. Just thinking logically for a second:

If all this course did was correct one mistake to get you accepted into your top Ivy, would it be worth it?

Don't worry though, the course isn't going to cost you $10,000. It only costs a couple hundred dollars. But you must act now before the countdown runs out, otherwise you'll miss a HUGE discount.

Just imagine what it will feel like sitting in class next to children of presidents and prime ministers. When you have the professor who WROTE the textbook. When your fellow classmates are famous mathematicians or child actors. Or when you realize you 100% belong to be around this level of world achievers. Just imagine.

So click on the enroll button below, and you'll be taken to a secure order form. After you put in your credit card information, you'll be taken to a private members' area where you'll get immediate access to the first week of the course, even if it's 3:00AM!

For those of you already signing up, this is what's going to happen next... the rest of the course content will be dripped out to you weekly, until the 6 weeks is over. After that, you will have access to the material forever.

And for those of you hesitating to make a decision... know that you're still making a decision. This might sound brutally honest, but it's true: it won't make a difference to Ivy Advise whether you sign up or not. The company will still go about its daily business, helping students get into Ivy League schools. However, without Ivy Advise's help, you'll always be working harder than you need to, and you'll risk making mistakes that could get you rejected. If you're honest, deep down, you know this is true.

So, it's up to you... what's your decision going to be?

Who is the course for?

The course is for high-school students applying for undergraduate studies at any of the Ivy League schools (i.e. Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Columbia, Brown, Dartmouth, Cornell, and the University of Pennsylvania). It may also be useful for students applying to other top-tier liberal arts colleges in the US (e.g. Stanford). There is advice for everyone from freshman to senior year (and middle school students will find it helpful for early preparation). The earlier you start, the more time you'll have to get all your ducks in a row...

How does the course work?

The course lasts 6 weeks and has 48 video modules that will be released week by week. In addition to videos, there are also PDF summaries, "homework" assignments, checklist items, examples of successful Ivy League essays, and timelines. 

How long will the course take to complete?

While all the course videos will be released over 6 weeks, the time needed to implement the advice will depend on you! There are over 7 hours of video content, so you should expect to budget around 1-4 hours of work per week. Of course, executing on everything that is learned will take the entirety of your high-school career.

When is this course available?

Right now! As soon as you enroll, you will have access to the first week of course material.

Will I be guaranteed acceptance to an Ivy?

As admissions officers make the final decision, your admissions decision cannot be guaranteed. In fact, anybody who tells you they can guarantee your acceptance is running a scam, and you should not trust them.

How long will I have access to the course?

How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you will have unlimited access to the course for as long as you like, across any and all devices you own.

"Hoofta! The Ivy League application process can seem like a monster, huh? From somebody who has gone through it before with close to zero guidance, I get it. My goal is to be like an older sister who has 'been there, done that'. It would be my pleasure to guide you through every single step of the admissions process. So let's get this show on the road and illuminate the oh-so-secretive path to the Ivy League!"
