Sarah Sculco
Duke University
I recently graduated cum laude with Highest Distinction from Duke University. I have a background in philosophy, public policy, ethics, science, and law. While in college, I interned in the Law and Policy section of the Environment and Natural Resource Division at the US Department of Justice. I also conducted research on political polarization. In 2019, I applied to philosophy PhD programs and law school; I was admitted to Harvard Law School, Columbia Law School, Duke Law School, Georgetown Law School, Cornell Law School, and Michigan Law School as a Darrow Scholar (full-tuition scholarship). I will be pursuing a fully-funded joint JD-PhD in philosophy at the University of Michigan. I specialize in pre-law tracks and programs, and I am able to advise those with the ultimate goal of attending law school. I also specialize in advising students interested in the humanities more generally. I'm passionate about helping students identify which colleges are a good fit and developing essay ideas, while guiding them through the tricky application and financial aid process.

Hi, nice to meet you! I'm a 2019 graduate from Cornell University where I studied Industrial and Labor Relations and minored in Business and Inequality Studies. As a student, I worked at my school's Office of Career Services where I reviewed resumes and cover letters, and conducted mock interviews. I thoroughly enjoyed helping my peers obtain their dream internships and full time jobs, and am looking forward to helping you in your college search!

College Testimonials from Clients Who Were Accepted to Villanova University

Avery Medina

My experience with CollegeAdvisor was excellent. My advisor, Carolyn, was always available for help and kept me on track with a well planned out timeline. She helped me refine my essay ideas and was fantastic when it came to editing and clarifying ideas in my writing. My college application experience would have been much tougher had it not been for CollegeAdvisor. I definitely recommend!
