My Approach

As a college admissions consultant, I can help you know yourself better – uncover what you really are as a person, and what activities and fields speak to your passions and strengths. I work with you on academic planning, activities planning, development of life skills, to help you “launch” your future. With respect to applying for colleges and prep schools, I will help make appropriate school lists, brainstorm and edit your personal statement for college and universities as well as finalize your college applications. Afterwards I advise you on your options and choices when you get your results.

Well in advance of the year applying to colleges and universities – I can help build a plan for:

Enjoy a smooth college application process

During the months of applying to colleges and universities – I can help:

  • Sit down with you and build your persona/profile – WHO YOU ARE
  • Find appropriate schools for you and build a realistic college application list
  • Manage timelines, tasks to complete, and get your app out the door, on time!

  • Help with the decision process once you have offers


Justin helped our son throughout the entire college application process.  He guided him from the very beginning with the essay writing, through the submission process, and continued to assist once the acceptances started rolling in. Thanks to Justin’s knowledge and guidance, my son had acceptances from the majority of the schools he applied to.    Subsequently, we had Justin coach our daughter through her college applications; knowing she was in great hands, our daughter owned the process and it went smoothly, with results that exceeded our expectations.  Thank you, Justin, for helping our kids get to where they needed to be.
