Consultant Profile: Carol Drummer


Navigating the graduate admissions process can often feel like a daunting, overwhelming, and exhausting journey. As a former dean of graduate admissions, with over 20 years of higher education, marketing and copywriting experience, I know I can help to smooth your pathway.

I want to work with Carol!

I have, in fact, successfully advised, coached, and mentored thousands of prospective MBA, Ph.D, MFA, MA/MS, PA, and Pre-Med Post Baccalaureate graduate students through the application, admission, and enrollment process. I have helped students research “good fit” schools and programs, prepare for the GMAT/GRE exams, develop and edit engaging statements/essays, and role play for the “hoped for” interview.

During my over 10 years as the dean, I have reviewed and signed off on admissions decisions for over 4,500 applications per year. I know what graduate directors are looking for in candidates. With this knowledge, I can help you to highlight your strengths so that you can develop the best application package possible.

In addition to my work with Accepted, I am a professor of communication and rhetorical studies and am writing, with a colleague, an “Admissions 101” book designed for parents.

I currently reside on Long Island, New York with my husband and 2 pups.

I look forward to the opportunity to help you take this next, very exciting, step in your educational journey.
