Since 2010, Interview SOS has helped hundreds of applicants successfully navigate their way into the schools of their choice including Harvard, Columbia, Stanford, UC Berkeley, UCLA, USC, Loyola Marymount University, and Cal Poly Pomona.
From comprehensive application assistance to targeted support, we offer a variety of admissions consulting services to help you at all stages of your application process.
Comprehensive One-on-One Admissions Consulting
We will advise you on all aspects of the application process including choosing the right schools/programs, preparing for tests, getting ready for admissions interviews, writing application essays and personal statements, seeking great letters of recommendation, and creating resumes/CV. We can help you plan your entire application process in a logical and comprehensive way to maximize your chances of admission to the school of your choice.
Admissions Interview Preparation
This is what Interview SOS is famous for and an area that we have the foremost expertise. Our interview coaching services are designed to help applicants become quickly equipped for their all-important admissions interviews by learning how to effectively summarize their qualifications, demonstrate their passion for their chosen field, and showcase their past accomplishments and recognition.
Application Essay and Personal Statement Writing
Interview SOS will help you create application essays and personal statements that make a compelling case for your admission by highlighting your educational background, leadership activities, professional background, past accomplishments, and credentials. We can either critique your existing write-ups or develop these materials from scratch based on a one-on-one consultation session.
Letters of Recommendation Consulting and Writing
References are some of the some of the most important elements of your application. Interview SOS is experienced in working with recommenders to create the right reference letters that help increase our clients’ chances of admission. We can either collaborate with your references or write the letters on their behalf, all in a completely authentic way.
CV / Resume Creation
The resume for applying to colleges or graduate schools is not the same as a typical resume for job applications. You may also have difficulties figuring out what to include on your resume if you don’t have all that much professional experience. We can help you craft an accomplishments-focused resume or CV that maximizes your chances of admission.
Comprehensive Application Review and Feedback
Perhaps you’ve already completed your application and you’re wondering if you’ve made any potentially fatal mistakes. Our admissions experts are able to review all aspects of your application to suggest areas of improvement and help you ensure that you have the greatest chance of admission to the school of your choice.
School or Program Selection Consultation
No one can guarantee admission and sometimes even the best applicants have to settle for second tier schools, simply because they didn’t select the right mix of schools and programs to apply to. With our consultation service, we will help you come up with a complete list of lower-tier, mid-tier, and higher-tier target schools that are appropriate based upon your grades, test scores and professional background.
Test Requirement Navigation
Although Interview SOS does not provide test preparation services, we can help you plan your test preparation and advise you on how to select the right resources to best prepare for your upcoming tests.
Why You Should Choose Us
Our admissions consultants are all former admissions and career services professionals from highly selective universities. They will work one-on-one with you to address your particular needs and share their unparalleled expertise in navigating the entire application process with you.
With Interview SOS, that expertise will become yours — you will be able to have a competitive edge over other applicants and effectively demonstrate your all-around capabilities in the eyes of your target schools’ admissions officers.

I was driving and thinking about who else I need to thank for their help. I thought of you and said to myself I need to text or email Vijay tonight. So sorry I didn’t get to you earlier, but the answer is YES! And I have to admit that I give you HUGE credit for my acceptance. You helped me so much with the whole process and I am so incredibly thankful for all of your help. I’ll be starting this coming fall as a medical student at Indiana University School of Medicine!!!

I was intimidated by the MBA application process but Joe at SOS made it so much more manageable. He assisted me find clarity in the essays, came up with a sound strategic approach to improve my GMAT scores, and the interview instruction he provided me with…he literally knew exactly what they were going to ask! Thanks

I just wanted to thank you on how much you helped me prepare for the interview. I just got the letter from Columbia saying that I got accepted! I don’t know if I could’ve done it without you. I was prepared for the interview. thank to you and I truly appreciate everything you did for me!

Vijay was a awesome mentor to me when it came to assisting me write my college application essays. He patiently listened to my ideas and assisted me implement them in a professional manner. Thanks to his support I was able to get into the schools I wanted. I would strongly recommend to anyone who is going through the same college application process as me.
Radha (College) – Naperville, IL
I strongly recommend Interview SOS. I was desperate for a college coach because my twins have not started their college appsn and November is around the corner. I went to Angies list and saw and called this company. The same day Vijay called me and I told him about our problem. He gave us HOPE. He set up the appointment right away for my twins and went to our house, instead of us going to his office. He gave us a very reasonable rate that we could afford. For two weeks, he worked with my twins patiently; checking everything in details, until they finished the application and he made certain that it was all submitted before we went on our vacation, which we all deserve. He also made follow up calls to us, to make sure that all the documents are submitted like teachers recommendations, sat/act scores, and transcripts.
Vijay treated my twins like family and not just clients. He is very professional and he’ll tell you on what he can do, to the best of his ability for your child to be accepted in a great college or university. In my twin’s case, Stanford and UCLA are what we are all aiming for them. I think because of what SOS produced in the application, that I am confident the they’ll be accepted. I could not have done it without them because I did not go to college here.
So in behalf of my twins and I, we desire to thank you very much for all your help and we really appreciate it. We wish you and your staff a Happy Thanksgiving. May the Divine Mercy of Jesus Christ bless all of you!
