Brandon Kang

Hi All! My name is Brandon, and I'm currently a 4th year at Stanford pursuing a B.A. in Economics and an M.S. in Computer Science. I applied to universities with an arts portfolio and with a strong volunteering background so happy to answer any questions about that or about the college application process in general! I've spent the last 4 years offering college consulting services to high school seniors and have experience in both private tutoring for SAT and cello. Given that I've held roles in both the Finance and Tech industries, I'm also happy to chat about how those opportunities have linked with my college experience!

Mika Simoncelli
Harvard University
Hi! My name is Mika and I'm a sophomore (currently on a leave of absence) at Harvard University majoring in Art, Film, and Visual Studies. I know the college application process can be overwhelming, and the idea of finding the perfect school for you can be even more so! My journey to Harvard took some twists and turns (including a gap year and some transfer applications), so I've spent a lot of time thinking about what exactly I want out of my college experience and what makes a school a good match for me. I applied to college with intended majors that ranged from art and art history, to math, to english, and was particularly interested in interdisciplinary programs that would bridge my art practice with my other interests. I also applied to most schools with an art portfolio, and am here to support fellow artists in finding a place that will nurture you and help you grow. Outside of being a college advisor, I also work as a creative writing teacher, and I DJ for Harvard's student-run radio station.

College Testimonials from Clients Who Were Accepted to Brown University

Sofia Vaca Narvaja
Brown University

As an international student who was not very familiar with the whole American universities system in terms of expectations and rules of the college admission “game” in general, having the advisor team made me feel confident in the work I was aiming for and the essays I ended up submitting. They helped me put my best self forward, both on paper and with my interviews. Lastly, a distinctive feature of CollegeAdvisor is the opportunity to chat with students that attend the universities I was planning to apply to. I found this aspect to be very helpful.

Navneet Raam
University of Michigan

Excellent service with over the top commitment to ensuring the student succeeds and reaches their goals. Couldn’t be happier with the process! Best investment of my life.

Iyanuloluwa Dare

When I reached out to CollegeAdvisor, they supported me with their program and helped me through the signup step-by-step. I was matched with my mentor. She helped me realize my best fit and find my authentic voice through my passions, experiences and challenges. She encouraged me to weave these experiences into my essays which made them stand out. She went above and beyond to support me through the stressful time of college applications and I am so appreciative of how this program supported me into getting into some amazing schools.

Francesco Efrem Bonetti
Harvard University

When I started the application process as an international student, nobody around me knew what it consisted of. The time we had available was short and I immediately got along with Genevieve. I was able to portray the full picture of my personality and interests. The application process for colleges in the US is very specific and as an international student with no experience in the USA, getting advice from “insiders” was very helpful. What I loved about CollegeAdvisor is that I was always at the center of the creative process as the only one writing my application.
