Rejection Letter Appeals
How to appeal a rejection letter.
First, we’ll evaluate the application you submitted to your colleges, discuss your appeal argument, and determine how likely your chances of succeeding are. Then, if your chances are good, we can help you develop your most compelling appeal argument.
Determining if You Have a Chance:
Not everyone has a chance of submitting a successful appeal. Typically, we can tell students if they’ve got a chance in about 30 minutes (usually less). We do this by evaluating the application you submitted the exact same way that an admissions officer would have done.
Submitting Your Best Appeal:
If there is a valid case you can make for reconsideration, we’ll outline what your appeal letter needs to say. We can also help you refine and finish your letter.

Our most impressive win: in 2010 we helped a UCLA freshman applicant with 3.8 GPA and 1900 SAT score reverse his rejection letter. Only 4.64% of admitted applicants had a GPA comparable to his. The average GPA and SAT score for admitted students was 4.35 and 2029, respectively.
Equally notable: in 2012, three out of the three students we helped appeal their USC rejection letters were successfully admitted on appeal. Based on historical figures, USC only accepts 17-25 appeals per year (out of 900+ appellants).
