Hi there! My name is Ishaani, and I'm a senior in Brown University's Program in Liberal Medical Education (PLME), where I study Computational Biology. Outside of class, I play in a jazz ensemble, write and edit for the [email protected] magazine, advise freshman at Brown, and research at the Center for Computational Molecular Biology. I've been working as a college advisor for 2+ years, and I look forward to supporting you all throughout the college admissions process!

I'm currently a graduate student at MIT working on my Masters Degree in Cybersecurity. I received my Bachelor's degree from MIT in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. I've had 7 different internships including Machine Learning, AI Research, Consulting, Software Engineering, Product Management, and Cybersecurity. I've held many different leadership positions at MIT (too many to count) and participated in 2 of MIT's formal leadership programs. I also studied abroad in Switzerland during my undergraduate years at MIT. During my free time, I enjoy skiing and seeing Broadway musicals, and I always enjoy mentoring and coaching younger students to help them achieve their dreams.

College Testimonials from Clients Who Were Accepted to Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute

Nico Gentile
Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences

Throughout my time applying to colleges my advisor was always there to look over and essay and provide me with amazing feedback! I am so grateful for all the work and advice that my advisors gave me when applying to college!

Loren Stillman
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute

Phillip was a wonderful advisor for my son, guiding and pushing him along weekly. We are very happy for his patience and communication skills, which helped get my son to talk and write which is very challenging. His last session about choosing schools and negotiating for more scholarships and grants was informative and helped us pursue appeals with positive outcomes. Thanks a lot for the superb service!

I found about Bullseye (now CollegeAdvisor) from an affiliate link in a college admission YouTube video. At first, I didn’t think much of it since there are plenty of college advising services, and I wasn’t sure what I would get out of them. However, after doing more research, making some goals, and discussing with my parents, I decided that CollegeAdvisor would make me feel more confident about my applications and decrease my stress about the process. It made me accountable and constantly want to improve. I learned a ton from this process. This investment is worth the money, from having a network of advisors from multiple universities to the essay suggestions, activity list edits, and interview preparation. And the most important thing: having a personal mentor. To my advisor Lily, Thank you for all your support and for answering my countless questions! This college advising experience has been invaluable to me. You are so skilled and passionate in this field. I wish you all the best in Grad school and beyond!
