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 :)

Lily Xu
I'm an incoming PhD student at Stanford University studying Microbiology and Immunology. I graduated from Washington University in St. Louis (accepted ED) in 2020 with a B.S. in Biomedical Engineering, minor in Computer Science, and B.A. in Biology: Genomics and Computational Biology. I've specialized in college applications for the past 4 years and have 2 years of work experience as an applications consultant. I've worked with students interested in all areas, from engineering to liberal arts to pre-medicine, and have helped students gain admission to Stanford, Duke, NYU, and more. I absolutely love reading and revising college essays and being a part of the college application journey. In my free time, I code, draw, and play music.
