Wow Neha, this is a lot of value. I loved watching the personal one-on-one interviews you did with students for us to learn more about the colleges more in-depth. I know I wouldn’t have gotten that from online websites or blogs - and that to me was priceless.


Honestly, most of the admissions counselors and our guidance counselor are older and less exciting. My teen really loved your videos and felt that they could do all of their work in half the time. My teen was procrastinating ALL summer, and now has all their essays done.


Not going to college here but being super hard-working, I binge watch UNICORN in literally a weekend. I felt like I had the shortcut to helping my child and it was amazing. I went step by step and it is clear that you took everything you knew and gave it to us. The course should have been $5,000. You are so giving!

These News Outlets Call College Shortcuts The #1 Expert For Parents To Hire For College Admissions


  • Will I get access to the course indefinitely?

    Yes! Because many families who signed up have students with earlier grades, we are making sure you have access to watch it as needed.

  • When does the course start?

    It starts when you sign up and we sprinkle in our live calls. It is completely designed for your family to do it at their own pace for a reason.

  • What if I am unhappy with the course?

    I never want families to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, all you have to do is submit the workbook filled out of the course to us within 30 days, and we will review it for a refund as we want to know that you have done the work first, and if we feel it is filled out well, we will process a refund. We believe our students must first put the effort, and if they put 100% effort and it doesn't work after doing the work, and we review it.

  • Who is this for?

    This is for parents with high school students who are high achieving and are looking to apply to a top 50 university to get the competitive edge they need to stand out like a UNICORN. This is also for teens to do as well. This is a course for families who like to take action, are resourceful, and decide they want the best for their family.

  • Why wouldn’t I just hire a consultant?

    You totally can. Let me tell you why this is more cost effective. If you work with a consultant - they typically charge A LOT more money than the value within this course. Also you wouldn’t have access to the secrets that REAL live students share from top schools like Harvard, Stanford, Rice, etc. that we interviewed to talk about their admissions process.

  • My child isn’t a senior, should I join?

    Absolutely - your child is applying to college within the next 3 years, and if you want to be ahead, BE AHEAD of the curve.
