Free, Remote, 1:1 Mentoring

The college admissions process is primarily about gaming the system, and almost everyone applying to college knows exactly what to do.

The Admit List is here to help the students that don't. We primarily operate by partnering with low-income or majority-minority districts, but if you think we can help you with your personal admissions journey, feel free to reach out!

We, as a collective community, have done it all -- gotten into Ivies, received full rides, written beautiful essays -- and now, we're working to help you do the same.

How do we accomplish all of this?


We pair students from selected districts with a highly accomplished mentor. Each week, they spend at least an hour remotely communicating and determining what steps the student should take to make their college dreams come true.

Check out some of our featured mentors below.

I was also heavily involved in student-led protests against school budget cuts in my hometown, as well as local anti-racism events. I'm also an ordained minister.
