“I didn’t even know I had a passion when I started, but now I don’t just have a passion, I have a future I’m excited about.”
– Arun Sethi

Arun’s Story

Arun started working with Command Education as a freshman attending a private school outside of Philadelphia. He was broadly interested in creative writing, sports, and medicine. Despite being a top student with a 4.0 GPA, he struggled with his confidence and decision-making abilities. While Arun dreamt of attending a top university, he struggled to develop a clear academic interest or passion.

Arun’s mentor emphasized the importance of honing in on one clear interest and using it to make an impact in his community. His mentor knew the first step towards identifying his passions would be exploring his options both in and out of the classroom, so he suggested that Arun apply to a writing program the summer after his freshman year of high school. He attended the Kenyon Review Young Writers Workshop, and while he enjoyed learning about how to strengthen his writing abilities through different literary works, Arun ultimately decided that he was not passionate enough about literature and writing to pursue it in college.

After his AP Biology course sparked Arun’s interest during sophomore year, Arun’s mentor decided to find opportunities for him to delve deeper into his interest in the medical field. Arun completed a collegiate clinical internship program the following summer. Afterwards, he and his mentor decided that instead of pursuing a pre-med track in college, Arun would work towards combining his love of cooking, fitness, and science to become a nutritionist. His mentor helped him develop a blog where he posted recipes of low budget, healthy nutritious recipes. He also worked with a Command Education tutor to improve his ACT score from a 31 to a 34. Arun eventually applied to and was accepted at Stanford, where he will be majoring in Nutrition Sciences.

Is a Senior Mentor the same as a college consultant?

Yes and no! Our college consultants are more than just college counselors, they’re near-peer mentors who connect to their students as they guide them through every step of the process, helping them find the best approach for standing out. Command Education counselors provide comprehensive mentorship; they incubate student’s passions and take their interests and passions to the next level. As a result, our students aren’t just class presidents — they are award-winning nonprofit founders, community organizers, political activists, and entrepreneurs whose applications wow college admissions officers.

How will you match my student with a Senior Mentor?

Each student is matched with a college consultant who is uniquely equipped to help them explore their individual interests and develop their strengths. We begin our process by asking students and parents to complete a questionnaire. Based on the answers, we prioritize personality fit in pairing each student with a hand-selected mentor.

How often will my student meet with his or her college admissions expert?

Students have unlimited access to their full-time Senior Mentor. Mentors and students meet via video chat, and additionally communicate frequently over email and text. Students typically meet with their Senior Mentors once weekly, though meeting frequency increases periodically depending on what the student is working on.

Who are your Senior Mentors?

Our Senior Mentors are recent Ivy League and top college graduates. Each of them is trained in our specialized near-peer approach. Our mentors have an incredible ability to relate to their students. They focus on unique extracurricular endeavors beyond the classroom and help craft successful college applications when the time comes.

Will my student work with more than one college consultant?

Each student works with one college consultant on an unlimited 1-to-1 basis from start to finish. All of our Senior Mentors work together as a team to develop personalized strategies designed to help each student gain admission to top colleges. One or more additional college consultants with specialized skill sets and knowledge bases may join a meeting to help a student develop certain aspects of their passion project. Students also have access to our in-house marketing team as they develop stand-out passion projects.

Do you offer SAT and ACT tutoring?

Yes, we offer standardized test tutoring in addition to our college consulting services. Students begin the tutoring process by taking SAT and ACT diagnostic exams. Our tutors then assess students’ academic strengths and weaknesses based on diagnostic test results and create personalized learning plans designed to help students reach their standardized testing score goals.
