The College Essay Guy Podcast
After hours spent interviewing some of the most brilliant minds in the college admissions world, I’m excited to bring you 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.
What others have said about the podcast:
"This is quite possibly the most helpful podcast I have ever listened to. I've only listened to about two and a half and already college and applying to college seems way less scary. I am certainly making my parents listen to these as well as we embark on the college process!"
"Really can't express enough how life-changing your podcast has been for my students as we've driven throughout the east cost visiting schools the past 2 weeks... We've been listening to you the whole time; critically thinking about college choice and gearing up for the fall."
-Sam, College Counselor
"I am applying to top schools as a veteran. I never thought these schools would be an option, let alone college admissions officers starting to seek me out for being a qualified veteran candidate for their undergrad admissions to fulfill their veteran quotas. The whole process is very strange transition, the interviews are different from anything I've been able to prepare for, and despite my GPA, test scores, and advanced military experience I can't shake this feeling of impostor syndrome...Your resources have been a huge help. I've been addicted to your podcast, and I wish I found out about you earlier. I just wanted to let you know that your work probably helps more populations than you initially sought out for."
