Hello, my name is Jillian Jolly and I'm currently a rising junior at Yale University! I am a prospective Psychology major, a pre-med student and I also plan to receive a certificate in Education Studies. On-campus, I have served as the City Chair for the Yale College Council City Team and as a finance manager for the YCC UOFC team, as well as a member of a number of other student organizations. I am very passionate about health disparities, societal injustices, and increasing educational access for students in socioeconomically depressed areas.

I am really excited to work with, guide, and help you all find your dream schools!

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 :)
