Lily Xu
I'm an incoming PhD student at Stanford University studying Microbiology and Immunology. I graduated from Washington University in St. Louis (accepted ED) in 2020 with a B.S. in Biomedical Engineering, minor in Computer Science, and B.A. in Biology: Genomics and Computational Biology. I've specialized in college applications for the past 4 years and have 2 years of work experience as an applications consultant. I've worked with students interested in all areas, from engineering to liberal arts to pre-medicine, and have helped students gain admission to Stanford, Duke, NYU, and more. I absolutely love reading and revising college essays and being a part of the college application journey. In my free time, I code, draw, and play music.
