Hello! My name is Andrew and I am a graduate student pursuing my Master's of Public Policy and Juris Doctorate. I have a bachelor’s degree in Global Economic Studies with a concentration in Latin American studies and a minor in P.P.E from UNC-Chapel Hill. After graduating with my B.A. in 2014, I accepted a position with the College Advising Corps where I spent four years working with students as they navigated the transition from high school to life after graduation. Afterwards, I worked at financial services firm before returning to graduate school. In my spare time you can find me working on my jump shot, hiking, exploring new food, or trying to convince myself to run a marathon.

Ruben Cuevas
Stanford University
Hey everyone! I'm Ruben, a Computer Science major at Stanford. I'm an entrepreneur, musician, political junkie, and someone who's determined to get you into the schools of your dreams. Selective colleges have so many qualified applicants, so it's necessary to craft an application that stands out to the reader. I believe that every student has something unique about them, whether it's an interest, perspective, or experience, but most don't end up highlighting it. As we work together, we'll discover what makes you unique and create an application that tells a great story, the quality that separates successful applications from the rest. The college application process can be a great time of discovery and reflection and doesn't have to be stressful. Let's make it that way together!

College Testimonials from Clients Who Were Accepted to Princeton University

Francesco Efrem Bonetti
Harvard University

When I started the application process as an international student, nobody around me knew what it consisted of. The time we had available was short and I immediately got along with Genevieve. I was able to portray the full picture of my personality and interests. The application process for colleges in the US is very specific and as an international student with no experience in the USA, getting advice from “insiders” was very helpful. What I loved about CollegeAdvisor is that I was always at the center of the creative process as the only one writing my application.
