Bay Area College Consulting is a San Francisco Bay Area- based college consulting company. It has offices in Cupertino, San Ramon, and San Mateo, allowing it to tap into the wealthy Northern California market. It also works with clients overseas, particularly in Canada and the Middle East. It was founded in 2008 by Trung Le, who has 14 years of experience in the college counseling industry. Its approach is to try to build up candidates by emphasizing their leadership background, extra-curricular background, and academic background (during grades 9, 10, and 11), and crafting the ideal college application essay (in grade 12).
Bay Area College Consulting seeks to provide clarity to an increasingly fierce college admissions process. It offers resume building, graduate admissions consulting, STEM tutoring, test prep, undergraduate consulting, and other personalized assistance. It emphasizes that students and parents focus on the college admissions process as early as possible to build their resumes and look to the future. Because its team remains relatively small, it is able to offer a “boutique-like” experience for its predominantly wealthy Bay Area clientele. It has also partnered with several local organizations to maximize assistance to students, including AJ Tutoring (offering test prep), the Russian School of Mathematics, and the Elite Educational Institute (SAT/ACT tutoring). Bay Area College Consulting claims over seventy percent of clients ultimately will be admitted to their top choices.
