Find your story

  • The key to a successful application is a cohesive story that aligns with the student’s interests, academic profile and future goals.
  • Through surveys and just chatting, I help my students to discover the best “admissions narrative” and a strategy for how to present their unique story through clubs and activities, community engagement, work, internships, summer study programs, essays, recommendations and interviews.
  • Taking time to build a strong personal relationship based on understanding each student’s strengths and weaknesses is a very important step, and it shows in their resumes and their results.

College List Selection

  • My visits with key admissions staff at boarding schools and colleges are a great advantage to students and their families. After creating a well balanced list of schools, then, we determine the best overall application strategy; whether you should apply Early Action(EA), Early Decision (ED),Rolling Admission (RA), or Regular Decision (RD).
