A Note from Our Founder

"What do I love about admissions consulting?

I've always been fascinated by people's life stories. Ever since I was a young child, I have loved reading biographies. And everyone – not just the famous – has a story. Discovering that story, and helping applicants articulate it, is a fascinating process.

Additionally, the editing process is a game to me. I was a writing tutor as an undergrad at UCLA and received excellent training there. I found then, and still find today, that figuring out the best way to express a phrase or tell a story is like solving a puzzle. Almost as good as Sudoku. Finally, I love hearing, ‘Thank you. I’m in!"

Client Feedback
Thank you again for your help with my essays.  Several of my interviewers commented on how polished they were and I think they really helped to off-set my lower score in the MCAT verbal.  I have been recommending you to others! I hope all is well!, SUNY Downstate, SUNY Upstate, Stonybrook, George Washington University and NYU. Read more
