I have worked in the college access world since 2014. In my time as a college counselor, I have worked with hundreds of students as they navigate their college applications. In my role as a college counselor, I strive to give my students the tools to be self-advocates, leaders, and life long learners who pursue incredible opportunities. I currently live in Chicago and serve as Program Manager for a national non-for profit.

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.

Bailee Peralto
Brown University
Hi! My name is Bailee Peralto and I'm in my seventh semester at Brown University, where I study Public Policy. I have two years of experience working with high school students on college applications. I specialize in advising on scholarships and financial aid, staying on track with deadlines, deciding on a school list, and crafting strong college essays. As a first-generation college student myself, I love being able to support other first-generation students in their college application journey. At Brown I'm involved in Model United Nations, I'm a Writing Fellow, and I'm a Co-Programmer for the Multiracial Heritage Series at the Brown Center for Students of Color where I'm involved in activism and community organizing. I also work as a Policy Intern for the Mental Health Association of Rhode Island. I really enjoy working with students on crafting their applications to make their college dreams come true!
