Matthew Yekell
Stanford University
Hello everyone! My name is Matthew, and I'm a member of Stanford's Class of 2025. When I was applying to colleges, I was told that attending an elite university would be impossible based on my test scores and low GPA. Thankfully, I didn’t let go of my dreams so easily. I realized early on that my essays were what could separate me from other applicants, and I worked hard to figure out for myself which stories to share and how to write my essays in a way that was both strategic and personable. I’m really excited to share my insights with you and to help you achieve your dreams in the admissions process. Outside of admissions consulting, you can find me involved in debate, advocacy, and community service.

Hello! My name is Mariko and I graduated from Yale University in 2021 with a double major in the History of Public Health and Ethnicity, Race, and Migration. I'm also enrolled in the dual BA/MPH program at Yale's School of Public Health, where I'm getting my Master's in Public Health through the Social and Behavioral Science department with a concentration in U.S. Racial Health Justice. Originally from Los Angeles, California, and I play water polo for Yale's women's team and conduct historical research on medicine and the slave trade. I also serve on the USA Water Polo Racial Equity Task Force and have been involved with Yale's Afro-American and Asian American Cultural Centers throughout my time in college. I was accepted regular decision with a "likely" letter to Yale, and was also a recruited two-sport athlete in high school.
