Luckily, the admissions landscape is starting to reward student applicants that show authenticity and an awareness of privilege.

Student Testimonials

“It was good to have a mentor who would monitor my college applications and deadlines, as I was so busy at school. Alex's resources and advice helped me a lot in getting a head start on my essays. Even when I was waitlisted at 12 colleges, Alex and I tried our best to get me off the waitlist, writing the appeal letters and starting a new research project. Overall, it was very satisfying and helpful for my overall college process.”

"Alex helped me tremendously during the college app process by being involved in each step leading to completion. Based off of my academic interests and extracurricular activities, he gave me a theme of “social entrepreneurship” for my college application. Setting a clear theme was important in writing the Common App essay and portraying what I wanted to pursue after high school. In terms of the essay, he helped me out starting from the idea generation process to writing drafts to making revisions for each draft. He was extremely meticulous in pointing out what I should work on and continuously gave me suggestions to improve the essay. I remember that I wrote A LOT of drafts for my final essay until we were both satisfied. Outside of essays, he helped me decide on what courses to take and proposed new extracurricular activities that would strengthen my application. In retrospect, Alex was not only a consultant but also a mentor that supported me throughout the whole college application process that can be stressful and pressuring. He communicates well with his students and is always willing to help - he even (recently) helped me revise my application for a dual degree with Wharton at Penn."

“Alex helped me in pretty much all aspects of student career building and college application. To list several of many many things he has done for me, he counseled me in building my extracurriculars such as club activities, guided me through writing research papers, ... helped me get into a summer camp at UPenn, and reviewed all of the essays I have written for my college application. I'm sure I couldn't have gone through all the complicated process without Alex's guidance.”

“Alex gave constructive feedback on how to improve my essays in light of the theme that I was writing for. My sentences tend to be verbose and Alex also helped me cut a lot of unnecessary sentences and keep the essay very compact and right to the point. We held weekly Skype meetings to discuss more about my essays' revision and further steps; he provided great help in my college application.”
