Jillian Jolly
Yale University
Hello, my name is Jillian Jolly and I'm currently a rising junior at Yale University! I am a prospective Psychology major, a pre-med student and I also plan to receive a certificate in Education Studies. On-campus, I have served as the City Chair for the Yale College Council City Team and as a finance manager for the YCC UOFC team, as well as a member of a number of other student organizations. I am very passionate about health disparities, societal injustices, and increasing educational access for students in socioeconomically depressed areas. I plan to either become a doctor or an attorney and one day start an organization that focuses on researching disorders/issues that affect minority groups and finding ways to combat them. I am really excited to work with, guide, and help you all find your dream schools!

Kevin Kim
Northwestern University
Hi everyone! My name's Kevin, and I plan on double majoring in political science and economics at Northwestern University. Even without super unique extracurriculars or experiences (finding the cure to cancer or starting a million dollar business at the age of two), I know that each applicant has the potential to present a unique story to the admission officers! As your advisor, I will work to help highlight the unique parts of your application in your essays. I'm excited to share the tips and tricks of the college process that I learned while applying for colleges and advising other students. I can't wait to help make these polar opposite terms (fun and the college process) seem like synonyms :)

Accepted to:

Feven Alemu
Duke University
Hi! My name is Feven, and I graduated in 2018 from Duke University with a Bachelor's degree in Public Policy and Global Health. I'm an Atlanta native and prospective law student at Emory University. I'm so excited to start working with you on your admissions journey!

Brandon Kang
Stanford University
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!

Accepted to:

Lisa Lozano
Massachusetts Institute of Technology
In the fall of 2012, I started applying to numerous colleges alone. As a first-generation, low-income student with a single parent, I learned everything independently. Eventually, my hard work in high school paid off and I was accepted to MIT. I completed my degree and my pre-med requirements in 2017 but decided to fulfill another passion: helping student access and succeed in college. I have served as a first-year college advisor for a cohort of nearly 80 students in the Greater Boston Area helping students apply to and get through college. As an advisor, I took a holistic approach, ensuring that students' academic, financial, professional, and personal needs were all considered. Then, I worked as a college readiness teacher for approximately 215 9th and 10th graders in San Antonio, TX and helped students practice their resume writing, drafting personal statements, and providing psychoeducational curricula (e.g., the importance of grit, coping during stressful times, finding support).  I now utilize my experiences so that other students do not need to go through the same challenging experience of applying to colleges on their own.

Bailee Peralto
Brown University
Hi! My name is Bailee Peralto and I'm in my seventh semester at Brown University, where I study Public Policy. I have two years of experience working with high school students on college applications. I specialize in advising on scholarships and financial aid, staying on track with deadlines, deciding on a school list, and crafting strong college essays. As a first-generation college student myself, I love being able to support other first-generation students in their college application journey. At Brown I'm involved in Model United Nations, I'm a Writing Fellow, and I'm a Co-Programmer for the Multiracial Heritage Series at the Brown Center for Students of Color where I'm involved in activism and community organizing. I also work as a Policy Intern for the Mental Health Association of Rhode Island. I really enjoy working with students on crafting their applications to make their college dreams come true!

Accepted to:

John Unser
Emory University
Hi there! I am a recent graduate from Emory University and I have over two years of college advising experience that spans the entirety of the application process. I am excited to help you find the best college fit for you by creating a comprehensive school list and competitive applications for those schools. As a philosophy major at Emory, I was able to hone my skills in reading and writing, and I am confident in my ability to help you construct meaningful and clear essays that elucidate your character and interests.

Accepted to:

Moshan Guo
Columbia University
Hi! My name is Moshan and I am a graduating senior at Columbia University. I transferred to Columbia as a first-semester sophomore from Colby College in order to pursue a BA in Human Evolutionary Biology. For my first three years of college, I was on the pre-medical track and did everything from conducting research on drosophila fruitflies to working as a medical assistant at a gastroenterology center. In my senior year at Columbia, I made the transition to consulting and I'll be starting as a full-time analyst at a media and entertainment consulting firm in LA later this year. Having gone through the college application process three times - first as a Questbridge scholar, then as a Regular Decision applicant, and finally as a transfer applicant - I hope to help students craft unique college applications that stand out every step of the way.

Accepted to:

I'm a currently undecided student at Princeton University, thinking of majoring in Public Policy/Health or Neuroscience! I have years of English tutoring experience, love to write, and love working with college applicants. I want to help you tell your story in a way that's authentic, stress-free for you, and in a way that will make admissions officers want you on campus ASAP! In my free time, I love TV, cooking, stand-up comedy and a good book.

Sami Elrazky
Yale University
Hi ! I'm Sami - I'm a junior at Yale, admitted through Questbridge Regular Decision. I'm a first generation, low-income student from Tacoma, Washington and I'm happy to help you get through the college process! I'm double majoring in Molecular, Cellular, & Developmental Biology and History of Science, Healthcare & Medicine. I am an undergraduate student researcher studying Parkinson's disease, and I'm passionate about undergraduate research and have organized several large-scale research-oriented events and initiatives as vice-president of the Yale Undergraduate Research Association. I am applying for MD/PhD programs, and aside from helping students craft a winning application to their choice colleges, I'm willing and eager to answer any questions about scientific research or premedical studies!

Nick Sawicki
Brown University
Hi there! I'm currently in Brown's 8-year BS/MD program called the Program in Liberal Medical Education (PLME) and am undecided between a concentration in Biomedical Engineering or a Biology/Economics double concentration. In high school I was the captain of our Science Olympiad team as well as the editor-in-chief of our school newspaper. In college I help run Brown's annual Science Olympiad Tournament and am a staff writer for the Brown Political Review. I know how much the college process meant to me while I was in high school, so I'm excited to help you on your college application journey as well!

Harvard University
I'm a senior at Harvard studying computer science and economics. While at Harvard, I have been on the board of Harvard Ventures and the Harvard South Asian Men's Collective. I am also a tenor saxophonist in the Harvard Monday Jazz Band. Before Harvard, I had no background in CS or economics, but Harvard gave me the opportunity to explore new fields of study I hadn't previously considered. I look forward to working with you to gain admission to your top choice schools so you can take full advantage of all they have to offer.
