It’s HERE! After hours spent interviewing some of the most brilliant minds in the college admissions world, I’m excited to launch the College Essay Guy podcast.
What is it? Practical, up-to-date interviews with experts in college admissions, financial aid, personal statements, test prep and more. I interview deans of admission, financial aid experts, and veterans of the admissions field to extract, then distill their advice into practical steps for students and those guiding them through the process. From creating an awesome college list to appealing a financial aid letter, I skip the general advice and get right to the action items, all in an effort to bring more ease, joy and purpose into the college admissions process.
