Hamilton Education’s College Applications
Class of 2018-2019 Early Acceptances!

The UCs are among the top desirable universities in the country! In 2018, UC Berkeley had a 14.9% admissions rate. Of students who worked with Hamilton in our College Applications Program, 80% were admitted to UC Berkeley!


The Regents Scholarship, based on academic excellence, is a prestigious scholarship awarded to UC undergraduate students. Regents Scholars receive an honorarium of up to $8,000, paid $2,000 in each of their 4 or 2 undergraduate years (for freshmen or transfer students), plus special privileges.

Ivy+ Acceptance Rates

Hamilton students get into the Ivy League and other top schools at higher rates than through any other college consultants.
Ivy League acceptance rates range from 4.5% (Harvard) to 10% (Cornell). Collectively, 41% of Hamilton students were admitted into at least one ivy league school. Hamilton students were also 4 times more likely to gain admissions into Harvard.

Hamilton Education worked with more than half of all the students in San Diego who were admitted to Harvard Early in 2018.

Mr. Hamilton has personally worked with more than 130 students who have gained admissions into Harvard!

Hamilton students also earned more than $5 million dollars in merit-based financial aid including full-ride scholarships and research stipends.


“Just like how their students are more than a score, Hamilton is more than its record Harvard acceptances and perfect scores. It’s a support system that will cheer students on when they are feeling frustrated about their initial scores and do all they can to help students meet their goals. Before I joined HCC’s college essay program, I didn’t think the schools I got into would be a possibility. But after helping me find my voice and giving me confidence in writing my essays, those competitive schools seemed possible.”

“… I have now accepted the offer at George Washington University, which was one of my dream universities, which was made better with a very generous and prestigious scholarship. I wanted to thank you all so very much to have helped me through this process.”

George Washington University, Class of 2023

Test Prep

See why Hamilton is the “#1 test prep service in the country” according to the Huffington Post.

Hamilton is the first premier test prep provider to offer a program that integrates a skills-based approach to test prep. Our H3 model teaches three tests at once – the SAT, ACT, and PSAT.

Score Improvements

1 out of every 8 students who enrolls in our 1600/36 Goal class earns a perfect score on the SAT or ACT, and 41% of them score in the top 1% on one or both exams.

Perfect Scores

Hamilton has helped more students than any other educational company achieve a perfect score on the SAT or ACT – 119 and counting.

Getting a perfect score on the SAT or ACT isn’t like acing an English test in school. On the SAT, only about 1 in 10,000 students get a perfect score of 1600. It’s slightly more common on the ACT, with about 1 in 1,000 students getting a perfect 36. This means that you’d expect about 1 student per high school to get a perfect score each year. At Hamilton, we pride ourselves in having 40+ of our students get a perfect score each year.  

Perfect ACT Scores in California

Hamilton students made up 6.5% of all the perfect ACT scores in California!

99th Percentile

Typically, out of a thousand students who take the ACT, only one of them ends up getting a perfect score (1 out of 1000):

Here’s how many of our 1600/36 Goal students you would need to ask before you found 1 perfect score (1 out of 8):

That’s why we believe we have the most effective test prep in the country.
