Ka’Rin Long
University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill
Hello all, I am entering my 4th of year of working as a college advisor. I love building relationships with students and making their dreams come true. I was a Sports Admin major in college but soon after graduation I fell in love with this line of work. I believe in each of you.

Shannon Ross
University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill
I worked as a College Advisor for the National College Advising Corps for two years before pursuing my Masters Degree and beginning work full time at the collegiate level. During my time as a college advisor I was able to learn a great deal about the college admissions process (including the common application and coalition application), financial aid, scholarships, residency (if your state has that) and more.

Kevin Kim
Northwestern University
Hi everyone! My name's Kevin, and I plan on double majoring in political science and economics at Northwestern University. Even without super unique extracurriculars or experiences (finding the cure to cancer or starting a million dollar business at the age of two), I know that each applicant has the potential to present a unique story to the admission officers! As your advisor, I will work to help highlight the unique parts of your application in your essays. I'm excited to share the tips and tricks of the college process that I learned while applying for colleges and advising other students. I can't wait to help make these polar opposite terms (fun and the college process) seem like synonyms :)

Arbre’ya Lewis
Duke University
Hello, my name is Arbre'ya Lewis. As a first generation, low-income, minority student, I recognized early the incredible power that comes with the resources & knowledge of a college advisor. In 2018, after graduating from Duke University, I became an advisor at a high school in Durham, NC so I could be that much needed resource for local students. After serving as the advisor for over 800 junior & senior students from 2018-19, I left for graduate school. My time at Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University allowed me to pursue my other professional interests as I obtained my Master's in Public Health. I currently work full time as a Health Communications Specialist, with a focus in cancer prevention. I'm driven daily by my desire to pursue equitable health & education for all. On that note, I am the founder of P.O. Purpose, Inc. a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering minority students to pursue their purpose through higher education. I have found incredible value in being intentional and thoughtful throughout the college admissions journey to ensure you make the best choice for yourself. Over time, I developed a knack for mentoring and walking students through the best options considering their individual wants & needs. As a communications specialist, I'm pretty savvy with essay editing too ;)

Moshan Guo
Columbia University
Hi! My name is Moshan and I am a graduating senior at Columbia University. I transferred to Columbia as a first-semester sophomore from Colby College in order to pursue a BA in Human Evolutionary Biology. For my first three years of college, I was on the pre-medical track and did everything from conducting research on drosophila fruitflies to working as a medical assistant at a gastroenterology center. In my senior year at Columbia, I made the transition to consulting and I'll be starting as a full-time analyst at a media and entertainment consulting firm in LA later this year. Having gone through the college application process three times - first as a Questbridge scholar, then as a Regular Decision applicant, and finally as a transfer applicant - I hope to help students craft unique college applications that stand out every step of the way.

Jordan Williams
Elon University
Jordan has a Bachelor of Arts in English, with concentrations in Literature and Creative Writing and minors in Business Administration and Women's, Genders, and Sexualities Studies. Her academics were just as diverse as my extracurriculars, where she was involved in a number of activities from working as a tour guide and a Resident Assistant to doing research and volunteer work. After graduation she took what she learned and worked as a personal tutor and a Creative Writing teacher so writing and teaching are still huge passions of hers! In addition to working, she loves to read, write, and manage a relatively successful TikTok account where she teaches Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity content.

Jesper Ke
Harvard University
Nice to meet you! Growing up in a Midwestern town of 10,000 people and not having any national awards in high school, I've been in a position where I felt like I couldn't stand out in my college application. Despite this, I was able to receive full-tuition merit scholarships from University of Michigan and Vanderbilt University, in addition to an acceptance from Harvard. My experience showed me that how you craft your personal narrative in applications is key to success. I'd love to draw on my experience helping students gain acceptance to schools like University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, University of Michigan-Ann Arbor, Swarthmore, Wellesley and more to help you craft your personal story and stand out. And as an incoming medical student, I'm also happy to talk to you about what it's like to be a pre-medical student should that interest you!

Accepted to:

Shruthi Bharadwaj
Princeton University
I'm a currently undecided student at Princeton University, thinking of majoring in Public Policy/Health or Neuroscience! I have years of English tutoring experience, love to write, and love working with college applicants. I want to help you tell your story in a way that's authentic, stress-free for you, and in a way that will make admissions officers want you on campus ASAP! In my free time, I love TV, cooking, stand-up comedy and a good book.

Lara Van Rooyen
Harvard University
Hi! My name is Lara, and I'm currently a sophomore at Harvard College studying Molecular and Cellular Biology with a minor in Psychology. I grew up in a small town in South Africa, with a graduating class of only 25 people (including myself!) and know firsthand how difficult it can be to navigate the college application process without the help of an academic advisor. Because of this, I am passionate about helping students from under-resourced high schools aim high and succeed in gaining admission to the colleges of their dreams! I am also excited to share my experience of being on a pre-med track at college, pursuing research at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, being a STEM major, and engaging in various forms of volunteerism.

College Testimonials from Clients Who Were Accepted to University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill

Navneet Raam
University of Michigan

Excellent service with over the top commitment to ensuring the student succeeds and reaches their goals. Couldn’t be happier with the process! Best investment of my life.

Lucas McKamey
Cornell University

Going into the college application process, I didn’t even know what CommonApp was, much less who I was or what characteristics I wanted to present to these mysterious arbiters of my next four years. My experience with CollegeAdvisor and, specifically, my mentor, Julia, has equipped me with the confidence, supportive guidance, and sense of identity to slay that application dragon once and for all. I’m confident whoever is found underneath Julia’s congenial tutelage will embrace a similar triumph over this fire-breathing devil.

Hiya Shah
Stanford University

Great!

Allison Guo
University of Michigan

My advisor made a genuine effort to get to know me, which made the essays that we worked on together stronger and much more authentic. Working with CollegeAdvisor helped build my confidence in my college applications!
