Gohar Khan and Mahad Khan came together to found Next Admit in 2019 with one mission: to help high school students navigate the college application process and get into their dream schools. Both brothers graduated as valedictorians from the same, small public high school in Connecticut. Gohar went on to study at MIT, and two years later, Mahad ended up down the river at Harvard. They had no outside support during the application process, finding that most counseling firms were overpriced and outdated. The two founded Next Admit to provide affordable and premium college counseling services to students around the world.
The Ivy League isn’t looking for sports team captains, science olympiad medalists, debate team champions, classical pianists, or perfect scorers. Rather, the nation’s top colleges want students with compelling stories—people who will effect change within their college communities and beyond.
The crux of getting into a top college depends on developing your hook—a strong and nuanced theme by which the admissions officers will remember your application.
Most students and parents do what they think the admissions officers want to see. We’re told that colleges want students who excel academically, join lots of clubs, take the hardest classes, and volunteer in their communities. This is not the approach you want to take.
You want to build a story—a narrative that ties together things you do, the classes you take, and the application you build. You should exude humility, intellectual curiosity, thoughtfulness, self-awareness, leadership, and ambition. We'll help you do that.
