General Questions

Squired is a platform that connects students applying to university with students who’ve attended or graduated from some of the most competitive schools in the US and internationally. Mentors provide one-on-one advice from first-hand experience applying to and studying at your dream universities.

Mentors provide one-on-one help and guidance throughout the college application process. Whether you’re looking for advice on school selection, essay editing or first hand insights on the college experience, Squired mentors are here to help.

As we focus on providing up-to-date, first-hand experience on the university experience and application process, mentors must be enrolled or have graduated within the past five years from an accredited university. To ensure a quality experience for all our students, we also require that mentors complete training to familiarize themselves with common student questions and how to assist them.

To be verified as a Mentor, you must fill out your profile and complete the training session with a member of our training team.
