Vignesh Namasivayam
Yale University
Hi there! I'm Vig Namasivayam, a 2020 grad of Yale. I strongly believe that every student has a path to a great school if they embrace who they are. For me, delving into my extracurriculars is what put me in a great position to succeed. For others, it's their academic or athletic passions. I'm really excited to help you navigate a tough and scary process and make it as stress-free as possible; I was a psychology major at school, which I loved because it has given me the tools to to dig into how other people think, which helps me help them. Beyond that, I really love entertainment, any kind. Since high school, I've been really involved in theater, culminating in my being the treasurer for the Yale Dramatic Association. I also was the Sports Director for our school's radio, getting the opportunity to travel and broadcast sports games. I was also the Treasurer for the Class of 2020. I would also be remiss to mention that I've definitely seen more TV shows than anyone I know.

Hi! I'm Sophie, a rising senior at Harvard studying Integrative Biology with a minor in Earth & Planetary Sciences. I’ve worked as an undergraduate researcher in a variety of areas (from neuroscience to biochemistry to climate change!), and I’m currently writing my senior thesis on urban ecology. Outside of class and the lab, I love singing a cappella, making theatre, and writing satire for the campus comedy publication. I’ve tutored and mentored many high school students, so I know all the excitement and nerves that come with applying to college. I’m looking forward to working with you to craft a stellar essay, shore up your candidate profile, and find the perfect fit!
