What people say

about us

What people say

about us

"LumiSource is amazing. All my friends had college counselors, but I used LumiSource because it was much more affordable, and I couldn't be happier with my decision. I saved so much money, and in my opinion, the guidance and help were much better than what my friends received from counselors they spent thousands on. Would definitely recommend to everyone who is applying to college next year."

student

Admitted to MIT ('28)

"I really can't thank LumiSource enough for how much it helped me through the process. Without it, I don't think I would have gotten into Harvard. All the tools, especially the guidance from the roadmap and essay tools, really helped me through the process and helped me craft essays that I would say were the best part of my application. I can't stress enough how helpful it was, and I would recommend it to any junior or senior who wants to get into a good college."

student

Eric Lee

Admitted to Harvard University ('28)

"I really wish I had something like LumiSource. Every feature would have definitely made my life so much easier. I especially love the Roadmap — it would have been amazing having something guiding me as a confused high schooler helping me understand what I need to do to stand out in the college app process. The best part is how affordable it is... I could have saved thousands on college counselors. Having LumiSource would have definitely been a huge help in my journey to landing a full-ride at Vandy (where I currently go)."

"LumiSource was probably the best thing for college apps that I've used. The Application Evaluation tool really helped me gain a sense of what I need to improve my application and what was expected from my dream school (Cornell), and its tools overall made the process a lot less stressful. Not sure what I would do without the Lumi chat everytime I had a question or was worried about something."

student

Dillon H-Williams

Admitted to Cornell University ('28)

"I was skeptical at first, but LumiSource truly delivered. Its tools, especially the Roadmap, made the process so much easier for me. The college tracker & essay manager helped me stay organized & the essay tools really helped me write amazing essays. Honestly, I didn't expect it, but I genuinely believe it played a big role in my acceptance to my dream school Columbia :)."
