Marilu Duque
New York University
Hello! In 2019 I earned my B.S in Integrated Digital Media from New York University (NYU) Tandon School of Engineering. In 2021 I completed my M.S. in Information (Data Science & Security Concentration) at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor -- School of Information (UMSI). This fall, I will pursue a second master's at Technological University Dublin as part of the prestigious George J. Mitchell Scholarship Program by the US-Ireland Alliance. Apart from my academic pursuits, I have worked for NYU’s Office of Undergraduate Admissions, UMSI’s Office of Graduate Admissions and have 11 years of freelance college and scholarship application advising experience. Additionally, I was accepted to 15+ schools and won over $1,000,000 in scholarships (including Gates Millennium and Buicks Achievers) which have enabled me to graduate debt-free. As your college advisor, I will help you make your students' college goals a reality, let's connect!

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!

My advisor has been more than able to work with me on whatever I needed help with, be that: organizing my applications, searching for scholarships, or finding financial aid. Video meetings went smoothly and I was able to make a college choice I can be confident in as a result of my advisor.
