I do not have any experience with them, so I apologize for the slight irrelevance of my posting.

I look at their name and I wonder: how much of a connection do they have with the real US Ivy League?

I think I already know the answer to that question.

Warm regards,

I am sure this company caters to other colleges. I mean they would have to. No real market in trying to get chinese student's into only ivy league schools. If I had Bill's Hot Dogs I would serve other things besides hot dogs hehehe

Do you have more info like a web site, home office location? How did you find them or vice versa. I can't find any commercial listing by that name and it sounds like a Chinese wannabe operation. Post some details we can hunt down.

Last month, there were a few Chinese consultants that claimed to have been from states on my campus. After a candid conversation with me on their first day in the school, one admitted that they were based in some small town in China. It was hard to get much out of them and the following few days they stayed they cooled off. They even closed their office door on me, when I was passing by. I know i should've knocked.

I guess they're well trained to address inquiries. But my students aren't. I'll ask the more honest people on the beginning of semester and share whatever's helpful. Perhaps, those friendly consultants were from the same "league" as OP's.
