#2 Veritas Prep

Veritas Prep was originally founded in a dorm room by two Yale roommates and has since then expanded to provide SAT and ACT prep, GMAT prep, GRE prep, college admissions counseling, and MBA admissions counseling. From the first day to today, all Veritas Prep instructors have earned official scores above the 99th percentile of all test takers. Veritas Prep also constructed their practice tests, homework problems, and student support with the same mindset: focus only on the highest possible quality. The same went for Veritas Prep’s admissions consulting services – Veritas Prep pioneered the Specialist/Head Consultant model, where each Head Consultant actually served on the admissions committee of a top tier program and Veritas Prep Specialists attended the schools to which you were applying. That formula proved to be popular with students, and today Veritas Prep is the nation’s largest privately held test prep and admissions consulting company.
