Just wanted to raise awareness of this non-profit that was founded by vets and is fully vet operated. The group helps veterans by providing complete free college admissions advice/counselling. The organization has directly help veterans gain admission to every Ivy League school, Stanford, MIT, Cal, UChicago etc etc
google: 'service to school' and reach out and you can get free personalized help from a fellow vet at one of your target schools. I've personally mentored around 25 applicants to admission at Stanford and ever Ivy including Harvard/Yale/Princeton. There's also help if you are aiming for schools like UMD, or UNC or anything in between.
Stanford grad myself, and was admitted to 9 of the 11 schools I applied to. Happy to help as well just PM me
