STAND OUT from a sea of applicants in Competitive College Admissions!
College Admissions and Applications have evolved beyond just essays and test scores. It's holistic! But what does that mean?
Contact me to find out what "holistic" translates to in college admissions; what "the right fit" means, the "secrets/insights" are AND work with me to increase your chances exponentially for getting ACCEPTED to your first choice!
1. PERSONALIZED ESSAYS (Holistically Engineered around YOU - Main Essays, Supplemental Essays, COVID-19 Essay, Optional Section)
2. Customized APPLICATIONS (Common App/Coalition/UC/MIT/Apply Texas/etc.)
3.. College SELECTION (Early Decision (ED) I and EDII/Restrictive Early Action/EA/RD)
4. Admissions BRANDING Strategy
5. INTERVIEW PREP
All Admissions Committees are laser-focused on one aspect of your application above all else. And that is deciphering the WHY of what you have done in school and life. This is the reason why all the essays exist, why an interview is conducted and why the common application allows you to write ten activities and choose their hierarchy. Figuring out the WHY is the key to securing acceptances.
If admissions never gets to know the real YOU, how can they ever understand you? And if they don't understand your uniqueness, how are they supposed to admit you?

The Secret to College Admissions Revealed:
Your candidacy for admissions is as UNIQUE as a fingerprint. Admissions officers look for YOUR story above any other factor in your application. My skills, expertise and experience are UNMATCHED in defining your story to create your brand and to show your value-add to the most competitive colleges and universities.
Competitive Colleges are reporting that up to 50% of seats are allocated by mid-December through the Early Decision I (including Restrictive+Single-Choice EA) and Early Action Process. That means applying early is a must! Which means getting started now is key to a winning application, essays, resume, common application and interviews.
