WE HAVE PERFECTED
I have known Rabih personally for many years. I consulted with him for both my undergraduate and graduate admissions processes. I was always impressed by his encyclopedic knowledge of colleges and universities, and as a result I was able to understand the strengths and weaknesses, pros and cons, of so many programs across the country in my field. I believe he would be a valuable resource for anyone regardless of his or her stage in pursuing higher education.
Rabih does an excellent job of listening, creating a plan and bringing that plan to fruition in the real world. He has the experience necessary not only to help you get to the program you want to be in but also plays a wicked smart devil's advocate and in doing so assures you of your own path. He has helped me continuously grow along my journey.
Guiding my hand with unceasing dedication, passion and encouragement, Nada & Rabih truly made the application process more organized, simpler and easier. Whether it be reviewing my personal statement or putting together a college list, they were there every step of the way.
CCI has helped me all throughout my academic career, from tailoring essay, to giving me advice during my degree. I felt heard and supported through the application process and when voicing my concerns. Rabih and Nada’s help has been invaluable. All their suggestions and changes made my essays stronger and were greatly tailored to the programs I was applying to. He made the process easier and significantly clearer.
Rabih pointed me in the exact direction I needed specifically when I needed it. Rabih introduced me to the Southern California Institute of Architecture, (SCI-Arc) a totally unconventional university and a school that I could only dream of attending. He shaped me and my application in such detail and without him I wouldn’t have felt like a strong candidate for this university. Rabih is a true scholar and professional, he is very critical and pays extreme attentional to detail and because of that I am very grateful. I guarantee that no matter what you choose to study Rabih has got your back.
The college application process can be pretty overwhelming. Under The guidance of CCI, I was able to organize and approach each aspect more effectively.
With CCI’s mentorship, I was able to portray myself in an exciting and truthful manner. Their advice does not only pertain to the college application process, but also allowed me to evaluate my own strengths and career goals.
CCI was instrumental in helping me polish the essays that I used when applying to Georgetown and U Chicago. I truly believe the message I was trying to get across was clarified and made more powerful using their suggestions. They are friendly, professional, and unbelievably canny when it comes to knowing what admissions officers are looking for. I was accepted early to Georgetown and Chicago.
Nada invested hours in helping me learn how to effectively tell my story, and helped me dig deep to find what qualities and skills I had that I needed to develop and describe in both my undergraduate and law school application journeys. I truly have CCI to thank for helping me get this far.
