OVER 50 STUDENTS ADMITTED              

Do you want to get into UBC Commerce (Sauder)?

With around 10k applicants and only 800 spots available per year, UBC Commerce is the pre-eminent business program in Western Canada.

With so many students with strong averages, the supplemental Personal Profile and video interview is a critical way for you to stand out, gain an edge, and show who you are as a student.

 

Spend less time stressing and second-guessing

Grades can only take you so far. Your Personal Profile and video interview are a huge difference-maker in your application. Doing a high-quality job takes time that you don’t have, given all of your other commitments.

Stop scrambling for feedback and answers. Get clear, proven advice from a professional you can trust.

Trusted by parents. Loved by students.

“Joel helped me with my Personal Profile for my application for UBC Sauder. He knows what he's doing.

Without his help, I would have been very stressed about my personal profile since it was so essential to my acceptance at UBC and it wouldn't have turned out half as good. I would recommend him to anyone applying to UBC Sauder.”

Listen for Yourself

Anonymous Client Student — Burnaby, BC

Working with Joel has been a pleasure. He offers a creative, academic and persuasive writing style. Through phone calls, he has helped me put my thoughts into words and place information through my essays to optimize my chances of acceptance.

And through about two months of working together, Joel’s helped me with multiple applications to which I'm submitting very confidently. I'd recommend this program for any student applying to university.”

Listen for Yourself

Anonymous Client Student — Toronto, ON

“As parents, we were really impressed with Joel's service when he helped our son navigate his way through the overwhelming university application process…

All I can say is after the first conversation with Joel we had a huge sigh of relief. His knowledge is current relevant. He demystified the process and it was a true pleasure dealing with such a professional. I highly recommend Joel service to any applicant on their journey through the university application process.”

Listen for Yourself

Anonymous Client Parent — Oakville, ON

“During Joel's process, it was thorough, detailed, organized, never rushed and it was clear he wanted me to create the best possible product to my applications. I looked forward to the sessions and I feel I completed all of the steps in the application with quality and focus.

Joel has an excellent process and approach to his client's applications starting with discovering his client’s personalities through professional surveys, step-by-step essay completion, and his advice towards his clients when they're working with their personal achievements.”

Frequently Asked Questions

How does this all work?

Our expertly trained Youth Coaches offer monthly coaching to high school students, utilizing a proven coaching methodology that's been refined over 10+ years. Sign up for a free consultation with our Student Success Team and we will take the time to learn about your goals and match you with a coach who can help you accomplish them. Our coaches work with students over several months to help them develop an authentic 'identity' that stands out with the admissions committee.

We also help students accomplish audacious goals that align to that identity, including obtaining internships/jobs, launching independent leadership projects, pursuing contests/competitions, winning scholarships, and much more. 

Our Youth Coaches combine all the roles a high school student needs during this pivotal point in their lives: a career coach, an admissions consultant, a mentor, a guidance counsellor, an academic adviser, a performance coach, and more. We like to think of it as 'executive coaching' for youth.
