Brandon Kang
Stanford University
Hi All! My name is Brandon, and I'm currently a 4th year at Stanford pursuing a B.A. in Economics and an M.S. in Computer Science. I applied to universities with an arts portfolio and with a strong volunteering background so happy to answer any questions about that or about the college application process in general! I've spent the last 4 years offering college consulting services to high school seniors and have experience in both private tutoring for SAT and cello. Given that I've held roles in both the Finance and Tech industries, I'm also happy to chat about how those opportunities have linked with my college experience!

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!

Ayotunde Adeyinka

Right off the bat, my advisor Julia identified my uniqueness and helped me express that, as well as my most beautiful life experiences, on paper. By believing in me every step of the way, she drew out the best in my writing ability and itemized the whole process into simple and more approachable pieces. Through the entire process, I truly felt supported as a distinct individual, and not just as a random applicant by everyone I met from CollegeAdvisor. It was an unforgettable experience for me! I couldn’t have asked for a better advisor.
