Parents FAQ’s

ObiCoach was founded by parents who went through this process and observed just how challenging, competitive and convoluted it has become. We felt there needed to be an option somewhere between - "just figure it all out yourself" and "pay a fortune to a private college coach". We now have that solution.

ObiCoach is an easily affordable college coaching solution that will:
- enable work from home on your schedule
- save time
- reduce stress
- make sure you don't miss a key step or decision
- help craft incredible essays
- offer a surprising depth of information and the guidance needed.

Our program breaks down the entire college application process into easily digestible assignments.

We use Google Classroom to deliver an effective, convenient program you can do from home on your own schedule.

Every two weeks you will get new assignments - varying from a few minutes to an hour

We provide the research and resources to get the work done, for example: the best tools to determine your major; to identify new colleges to consider; to assess likelihood of admittance; and to assess fit.

We will help you craft incredible essays that will get you in.

We provide detailed advice, direction, worksheets and tip-sheets to assist with all the college decisions.

ObiCoach is really unique in the marketplace at under $200.

The closest comparison is hiring a private college coach for a few thousand to $10,000+.

ObiCoach was founded on the principle of using technology to level the playing field, allowing everyone to enjoy the same advantage as those hiring a best-in-class private coach.

Some students start with ObiCoach to reduce the overall cost of private coaching.

If your student is a Junior in high school, now is the time to start. The college application process is a bigger undertaking than most realize and getting started now means less stress for everyone, and better results in the end.
The reality is that admission to many selective schools is extremely challenging.

Let’s take UCLA as an example: 135,000+ applications for about 6000 spots. 30,000 to 40,000 of those applying were academically qualified – had the grades and test scores to get in. The unfortunate reality is that every year many 4.0 students with great SAT scores don't get into their UC of choice.

We can help you separate yourself from the crowd to maximize your chance of gaining admission. We can also help you find alternatives that may be equally as compelling and similar in cost but less intensely competitive.

Yes, that is a factor, but there are also, in fact, more students applying for fewer slots at the top schools.

Example Top School Admit Rate changes in last decade:
Stanford: 2007 11%, dropped to 5%
Duke: 2007 24%, dropped to 11%
Northwestern: 2007 30%, dropped to 13%
UC Berkeley: 2007 27%, dropped to 16%
UCLA: 2007 24%, dropped to 14%
University of Chicago: 2007 40%, dropped to 9%

We have more students due to: demographics (26MM 18-24yr olds vs 20MM), more high school seniors going to college (68% vs 60%) and more foreign students (15-20% of admits at many top schools up from 2%).

The UC schools have an added dimension - which is that they hold a certain number of slots for the full-tuition out-of-state students, further intensifying competition for the in-state students.

ObiCoach can be a cost-effective alternative to a private coach, or can serve as an excellent supplement. We can help a student be better prepared to efficiently use the expensive time with a private coach. Some students welcome the opportunity to focus their time with a coach on particular area of expertise like essay-writing.
