New York, NY, December 08, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Pinnacle Educational Center formally announces its Ivy League Admissions Advisors (ILAA) division.
The new division is just for high school students who are interested in applying to or college students who are interested in transferring to Ivy League and highly selective colleges and universities.
“An Ivy League degree is the most coveted educational degree in the world,” said Dr. Paul Lowe, President and CEO of Pinnacle Educational Center, LLC and co-managing director of Ivy League Admissions Advisors. “We are seeing an increase in the number of international students applying to Ivy League schools specifically because of the degree's long-term value. Applications to Ivy League colleges and universities continue to reach new heights and are breaking records. I predict that the numbers will be even higher this fall.”
As a record number of U.S. as well as international students apply for a limited number of spots at Ivy League colleges and the most selective American colleges, the chance of acceptance is decreasing and rejection rates increasing. This year, Harvard accepted a record low 6.17 percent of applicants to the class of 2015, Brown 7.15 percent, Columbia 5.65 percent. This means that over 90 percent of the applicants who apply to these elite schools are rejected.

“I find top-students and their families still ill-prepared for this extraordinarily competitive and complex process,” said Lowe.
“Successful college admissions advising is part intuition, statistical analysis, psychology, timing, strategy development and lot's of experience. You have to feel the rhythm of what's going on,” said Lowe, who is also a musician, ping-pong and avid chess player.
“At Pinnacle, we are constantly in tuned to insider knowledge and have the experience about Ivy League college admissions that parents, guidance or college counselors, other independent educational consultants and foreign education agents don't have,” said Veronica Hanley, co-managing director of Ivy League Admissions Advisors and a graduate of Brown University. “Helping our clients gain a competitive edge with our insight and knowledge is what sets us apart.”
“Dr. Lowe is detailed oriented and leaves no stone unturned,” stated Sue Rosenblatt, a former client and a mother of two students who are graduates of Ivy League schools.
Melody Zhang hired Dr. Lowe to help her son who was recently accepted to Columbia. “My son will return home [China] with the status and career advantage of an Ivy League degree, said Mrs. Zhang. Mrs. Zhang sees the fee [$18,000] that Pinnacle charged as a long-term investment in her son's future and social status. “My son's future is worth every penny,” she said.
Why Ivy League universities? A recent study in the journal, Research in Social Stratification and Mobility, confirms suspicions that the best route to a top job on Wall Street is to attend an Ivy League school. According to Dr. Lauren Rivera, the author of the study, "Elite professional service employers rely more on academic pedigree more than any other factor. Where you went to school rather than what you did there makes the difference."
