Christopher Yoon
Brandeis University
Coming from a low-income background and being the first in my family to attend college, I am thankful for the opportunities afforded to me and would love to give back through sharing my knowledge and experience. From applying to 35 different schools in high school to volunteering at the Brandeis admission's office in college, I was able to experience both sides of the college application process and fully understand how to put one's best foot forward.

Zach Wehrli
University of Chicago
Hey there! My name is Zach, and I'm a 2018 graduate of the University of Chicago. After graduating with honors in Political Science, I moved to Washington, DC to work as a Policy Associate at a nonprofit, where I worked on issues related to national security and foreign policy. Currently, I'm pursuing an MPP at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University; after graduation, I'll be joining the U.S. Foreign Service as a diplomat. I also have more than three years of professional experience in college admissions, including a fellowship in a top 10 undergraduate admissions office and two years as a part-time admissions consultant.

Sally Kim
Boston University
Hi! My name is Sally, and I'm from the San Francisco Bay Area. I studied at Boston University as a first-generation Presidential Scholar, where I realized through my studies and professional experiences my true passion: transforming education (especially higher education) on a global scale to make opportunities more equitable and accessible for all. During my time as an undergraduate, I also worked extensively at the Office of Admissions as a Student Admissions Representative. In my free time, you can find me either working out/teaching fitness classes, binging Netflix, spending quality time with the people who matter most, or raising my sweet new Italian Greyhound pup, Birdie!

Jahan Mirchandani
Johns Hopkins University
Hello! I graduated from Johns Hopkins a year early with an honors degree in International Studies. During my time on campus I was on the volleyball team, Class President, in a fraternity, on the Admissions team, and part of the Model UN + Mock Trial teams. I joined Deloitte Consulting after graduating and have loved my 5 years there. I enjoy all things NY sports, biking, volleyball, politics, scrabble, chess, and discovering new music! As the first person to attend college in my extended family, I thoroughly enjoy sharing my advice, experience, and tips & tricks that I had to pick up by myself but can now help others :)

Jae Chang
Cornell University
I am a senior at Cornell University, studying Government and China & Asia-Pacific Studies. My main interests are international relations, primarily US foreign policy in East Asia. During my time at Cornell, I have written for a foreign policy magazine, researched with a professor, and studied off-campus in Washington DC while interning with an NGO. Since my freshman year, I have helped students with college applications through all parts of the admissions process, from researching schools to applying for financial aid. Through my experience, I have talked to a vast range of students about their own experience and how to bring out the most of it in their essays.

Lara Van Rooyen
Harvard University
Hi! My name is Lara, and I'm currently a sophomore at Harvard College studying Molecular and Cellular Biology with a minor in Psychology. I grew up in a small town in South Africa, with a graduating class of only 25 people (including myself!) and know firsthand how difficult it can be to navigate the college application process without the help of an academic advisor. Because of this, I am passionate about helping students from under-resourced high schools aim high and succeed in gaining admission to the colleges of their dreams! I am also excited to share my experience of being on a pre-med track at college, pursuing research at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, being a STEM major, and engaging in various forms of volunteerism.

Caroline Hutton
University of Chicago
Hello! I'm Caroline, a lifelong Midwesterner and 2018 graduate of the University of Chicago. Most of my four years at UChicago were spent reading in campus coffee shops, running civic engagement programming at the Institute of Politics, and (weather permitting) enjoying time along the shores of Lake Michigan with my friends. After college, I spent an amazing year teaching English on a Fulbright scholarship in Madrid, Spain. This past year, I had the incredible privilege of organizing for Elizabeth Warren's campaign in Iowa and Arkansas. I know how confusing and anxiety-inducing the college application process can be, and I'm here to tell you: it's all going to turn out okay, I promise. I'm so excited to help you find your dream school!

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.

Laila Rahbari
Cornell

I worked with Pam and she completely saved my application! I’m extremely satisfied with my results and would definitely recommend college advisor to someone else. We worked on individual essays and she truly cared about my application. I’m so grateful to get accepted to Cornell and it wouldn’t have been without college advisor.

Jan Marie Borromeo
Stony Brook University

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!
