Theodore Longlois
Harvard
Hi, y'all! I grew up in Corpus Christi, Texas and graduated magna cum laude from Harvard College. At Harvard, I majored in Folklore and Mythology with a minor in Spanish and Global Health and Health Policy. I was president of Response Peer Counseling, vice president of Harvard College Debate Union, and treasurer of Advocating Success for Kids. I was also a supervisor at Harvard Square Summer Homeless Shelter. I have ten years of experience as a teacher and tutor, including serving as a peer tutor and library educator at Harvard. After graduation, I taught high school debate and was a college advisor with Impact America, an AmeriCorps program. I also taught debate for Smith College. I then went on to teach debate at Success Academy Harlem North Central Middle School, one of New York City's top charter schools. I am currently a rape crisis advocate in Tuscaloosa, Alabama and am a member of the ACLU of Alabama's Smart Justice Organizing School. In my free time, I volunteer as a mentor with Trans Mentor Project, work on mutual aid projects across Alabama, and go hiking.

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!

Adrian Ruiz
University of Texas – Austin
Hello! My name is Adrian Ruiz and I am a former first-generation college student who has a passion for helping students of all walks of life achieve their collegiate dreams. Over the years, I have helped students achieve acceptance to universities of all shapes and sizes across the country like UT Austin, Stanford, Emory, Duke, University of Chicago, and many others. Everyone has a college that is right for them and I know what it is like to be lost on the path to higher education. I am here to help you on that journey through all of the twists and turns until you walk on the college campus of your choice and realize you are home.
Lisa Lozano
Massachusetts Institute of Technology
In the fall of 2012, I started applying to numerous colleges alone. As a first-generation, low-income student with a single parent, I learned everything independently. Eventually, my hard work in high school paid off and I was accepted to MIT. I completed my degree and my pre-med requirements in 2017 but decided to fulfill another passion: helping student access and succeed in college. I have served as a first-year college advisor for a cohort of nearly 80 students in the Greater Boston Area helping students apply to and get through college. As an advisor, I took a holistic approach, ensuring that students' academic, financial, professional, and personal needs were all considered. Then, I worked as a college readiness teacher for approximately 215 9th and 10th graders in San Antonio, TX and helped students practice their resume writing, drafting personal statements, and providing psychoeducational curricula (e.g., the importance of grit, coping during stressful times, finding support).  I now utilize my experiences so that other students do not need to go through the same challenging experience of applying to colleges on their own.

College Testimonials from Clients Who Were Accepted to University of Texas – Austin

Jennifer Lawrence
Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Gabe was absolutely wonderful as an advisor. He was very thorough with both grammatical and content edits in my essays, as well as very knowledgeable whenever I had questions about the process. I primarily needed CollegeAdvisor for assistance in crafting my essays and activity descriptions and didn’t really make use of any of the offered webinars/workshops; I also had my college list already picked out when I came to CollegeAdvisor, so I didn’t receive much help there either, but Gabe did help me do some research on schools that I was applying.

Jonathan Wu
University of Pennsylvania

My advisor (Phillip) was very responsive and always gave me great tips about my essays and application strategies. Moreover, the access to the whole advisor network was a game changer, as I was able to talk to an alumni of my dream school, University of Pennsylvania, which I believe was a big factor of my acceptance to the school during the regular decision round!

Aliye Kocak
Texas A&M University

Very informative and warm people. All the advisors were open for personal, one-on-one sessions and you can literally connect with all kinds of students from all kinds of schools: Coca Cola Scholarship Scholars, Ivy League students, and national award winners. They are willing to guide you wherever you’d like to go. I especially liked it when I found myself talking with all kinds of students from different backgrounds, who are also interested in the same field as me, as they gave me good advice on how they got to where they are.
