Squired is a community for college students where you can get help on college applications from mentors who have been through it before.

The community works through three simple steps:

1. Choose an advisor: There are over 50 advisors from top universities ready to help you. They have studied at Princeton, Harvard, Stanford, and other well-known universities. Choosing an advisor from the university you'd like to study at will help you get specific tips for applying.

2. Choose a time: Once you choose an advisor, you need to check his/her time availability.

3. Book a call: Once you pay, you will access a one-on-one video call with your chosen advisor. This is the perfect place to ask questions about college applications and essays.

You can choose among three one-time purchases to use Squired. The difference is in the number of sessions you get. The first option is $49 (one-hour session), the second one is $139 (three one-hour sessions), and the last one is $249 (six one-hour sessions).

The first option allows you unlimited messaging with your advisor, which will help you clear additional questions. On the other hand, by choosing the last two options you will get unlimited access to all advisors' profiles and resources, as well as the opportunity to work with mentors from multiple universities.

Lastly, the community also has a discussion forum where mentors organize live Q&A and students can interact with each other.

"It was a great experience for me! Eesha went through the application process with thorough consideration of the stage I am at right now. Getting advice from Eesha was very helpful. She addressed parts of the application I was unclear about such as the letters of recommendation, and gave in-depth feedback on my application plans and how to relate my interests to the application." -Stacey S.
