Hi there! I'm Vig Namasivayam, a 2020 grad of Yale. I strongly believe that every student has a path to a great school if they embrace who they are. For me, delving into my extracurriculars is what put me in a great position to succeed. For others, it's their academic or athletic passions. I'm really excited to help you navigate a tough and scary process and make it as stress-free as possible; I was a psychology major at school, which I loved because it has given me the tools to to dig into how other people think, which helps me help them. Beyond that, I really love entertainment, any kind. Since high school, I've been really involved in theater, culminating in my being the treasurer for the Yale Dramatic Association. I also was the Sports Director for our school's radio, getting the opportunity to travel and broadcast sports games. I was also the Treasurer for the Class of 2020. I would also be remiss to mention that I've definitely seen more TV shows than anyone I know.

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.
University of Pennsylvania
Hello! I am student at The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania studying Finance and Entrepreneurship Management. In high school, I was heavily involved with the start-up space as a founder, and I would especially like to share my experiences crafting my college application with business school applicants. I also can help you shine through your essays and identify your unique theme. At Penn, I am involved with two consulting clubs, the Students Federal Credit Union, a Venture Capital Diligence Team, and the Wharton Undergraduate Cohorts System. I'm super excited to work with you to help you get into the college of your dreams!
I graduated Cum Laude from Phillips Academy Andover and am an incoming undergraduate student at Princeton University (having just taken a gap year). I plan on pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Neuroscience as well as certificates in Music Performance and Music Theater. I have three years of formal experience tutoring and mentoring high school students. I am extremely passionate about helping students achieve their scholastic goals!

Hi there! My name's Austin, and I'm a Computer Science major at Stanford University -- go, card! As a relatively typical applicant (i.e. one who didn't cure cancer by age 5), the prospect of attending a top school didn't seem like even a remote possibility for me. After hours-upon-hours of work, however, I discovered that with a little bit of editing, my relatively-simple extracurriculars could actually be worth talking about. I've been in your shoes, and I want to help you turn daily life into extraordinary essays; because, frankly, you're a lot more interesting than you may realize!
