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.

Isabella Gayoso
Penn State University
Hey! My name is Isabella and I am a rising Junior Mechanical Engineering and Aerospace Engineering double major with a minor in Entrepreneurship at Penn State. At Penn State, I hold several distinctions, including being a member of the honors college(Scheyer), the honors engineering scholars program (Leonard Scholars), and a recipient of the Provost Award. Professionally, I worked at SpaceX as an intern for my gap semester in the spring. This summer I am interning for Lockheed Martin Space. During my senior year application cycle, I gained admittance to several top universities, listed on my profile. I also earned several national, regional, and local scholarships including the Lockheed Martin STEM Scholarship, and I have totaled over $150,000 in scholarship money to date. One of my areas of strength is scholarship applications and essays, both specific to a university or in a national or local application. I also thoroughly understand how to frame a college application in the best way possible by creating cohesive activity descriptions, essays, and short answer responses. I have worked with students in the Pittsburgh area and with International students. This is my first year with CollegeAdvisor, and I’m so excited to help students meet their goals!

College Testimonials from Clients Who Were Accepted to Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Jennifer Lawrence
Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Gabe was absolutely wonderful as an advisor. He was very thorough with both grammatical and content edits in my essays, as well as very knowledgeable whenever I had questions about the process. I primarily needed CollegeAdvisor for assistance in crafting my essays and activity descriptions and didn’t really make use of any of the offered webinars/workshops; I also had my college list already picked out when I came to CollegeAdvisor, so I didn’t receive much help there either, but Gabe did help me do some research on schools that I was applying.
