Magellan’s seniors have all received their college decisions, and the news is great!! The 50 students who worked with our team this year have been admitted to over 150 different colleges, including Ivy League, a variety of Top 25 universities and all nine UC campuses. Why is that number significant? Because our students don’t all apply to the same colleges! They each have unique college lists that are tailored to fit their strengths and interests. Congrats Class of 2017!
