  • By the 24th of December: All regular universities’ essays and relevant material are finalized. (Sometimes if the student desires, or if there are circumstances that justify the application to more than 12 Universities, we work together until 1stJanuary to assist our students).

 CLC’s Team Uniqueness

  • We have 24 years experience in mentoring students to get into their dream schools worldwide, for all levels of studies, taking out the anxiety of the application process.
  • Keeping in mind that almost all U.S.A Universities will take a number of Greek students or maybe none, we at CLC know the competition from almost all schools and athletes, so we devise a strategy plan for each of our student to make a difference among the competition.

Most importantly

The dedicated Team of the CLC Family, which helps our students to sail safely in uncharted waters.

  • Throughout this process CLC Mentors are available 24/7 to the students and their parents.
  • Interview Preparation: Conduct multiple mock interviews with our expert team and help from our alumni.
  • Help with defer and waitlist letters so to increase the chances of turning the university’s decision around.
  • Assist with portal openings for each university after the application, should any documents be needed.
  • Mentor, guide and financially support our students to carry out volunteering drives and projects www.clcengage.com mentored by our unique network of students, friends and parents.
