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

    @thestandard Thanks for the post. I've seen the S2S program but haven't tried it out. In all honesty, it's due to fear of rejection/failure.

    How would you say that the services helps veterans get accepted into these colleges?

    I like to consider myself a hard worker but don't see myself as anything special/extraordinary aside from my veteran status.

    @Mangorind86 the program provides mentorship from veterans that have managed to transfer into these schools that seem out of reach. Literally a non-profit built by veterans, for veterans, that helps share the knowledge folks have accrued over the years in navigating this process. There's no downside to partaking so I wouldnt worry about rejection as a part of S2S. I've known many hard working vets that didn't see themselves as remarkable that have since graduated from Ivy League and their peer type schools like Stanford, MIT, Duke, Georgetown etc etc along with big state schools like Michigan and UNC. The point of the org is to help vets not sell themselves short in this process
