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 :)

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!
