Prepped for Admissions

About a decade ago, I began my journey as an educational consultant. During that time, I visited over 50 schools. joined three prestigious professional educational placement organizations, and worked one to one with students to help get them into schools. It was an incredible as well as fulfilling experience.

Now back then, I was mainly known as a test prep tutor. However, my clients often express a strong need for comprehensive guidance. With limited hours in a day, I decided to focus on test prep and partner with local educational consultants to fulfill the admissions needs of my clients.

Fast forward to today, and I’m grateful to say we’ve grown tremendously, serviced hundreds of students and families, and so has our capacity for supporting additional educational services. This growth is a positive sign, and we are ready to embrace it. Our amazing staff commit to our one-to-one approach, custom tailoring our services, setting goals, and also treating each student as an individual. This philosophy translates perfectly into the emission space, and we’re thrilled to dive back into it.

Now, sadly in the past decade, the anxiety around college admissions has skyrocketed. Everyone seems to be aiming for Harvard and Yale, along with other Ivy League institutions. Now, while we can certainly help students gain admission to these prestigious schools, I also want to point out that there’s countless colleges out there that could be the perfect fit for your child.

On the Prepped and Polished podcast, I’ve had the privilege of interviewing New York Times bestselling authors Frank Bruni and Julie Lythcott-Haims. While Ivy League schools are phenomenal, Bruni and Lythcott-Haims’s insights reinforce a crucial message: brand colleges don’t necessarily guarantee happiness and success.

At Prepped for Admissions, we help all students find the best-fit college for them. Our ultimate goal is to foster a community of happy, healthy, and successful young adults.
