David Querusio
Boston College
Hi there! I have been working as an admissions counselor at NYU for the past four years. While at NYU, I also earned my master's degree in Higher Education and Student Affairs. As a first-generation student, I was excited but also very intimidated by the college application process. I ended up staying close to home at Boston College and loved it. So much of being successful in the application process depends on knowing how to navigate the requirements and expectations of universities, and I am happy to help you every step of the way!

I'm passionate about the arts, and while on campus I was involved in theater, music, and dance groups. I also worked as an official tour guide and a sales associate, so I interacted with a lot of prospective students visiting campus.

I had a wonderful experience with CollegeAdvisor. My advisor worked many hours with me and did a great job helping and supporting me through the whole application process; this included everything from the essays, to the interviews, and finally the decision process as well.

Kalyani Valiyaveettil
Columbia University

CollegeAdvisor’s tremendous resources and committed advisors helped make the application process stress-free. I was able to customize the service and create an environment in which I work best. Through hours of essay editing, not only did I grow as a writer but I became more self-aware, learning the value of my experiences. As a look back, I am proud of all the work my advisor, Zoe, and I were able to accomplish together.

Jan Marie Borromeo

CollegeAdvisor guided me and my family with a process that we were unfamiliar with. I felt comfortable asking questions and received advice that aided me every step of the way. With every session, I left with new information that allowed me to evaluate my school choices and essays. I also greatly relied on the webinars which were helpful. My overall experience was great!
