Welcome to Applying to College!

I teach students nationwide what I know and love – great writing, resume and interview skills. Students learn to master interview skills and transform their dreams, goals and experiences into memorable college and grad school application essays.

I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Cornell University and a Master of Science degree from Boston University’s College of Communication. After a 20 year career in television, which included a Writers Guild Award for All My Children and two Emmy® Award nominations, I founded First Impressions College Consulting.

What’s a soap opera writing doing teaching college application essays?

When I wrote for television, I had to create interesting and compelling stories that held the viewer’s attention. That’s exactly what a great college application essay needs to do.

I’m proud to say that college interviewers remember and compliment essays written by my students.

Among the schools my students have been accepted to are:
Cornell University, University of Pennsylvania, Wellesley, Georgetown, Barnard, Penn State, The George Washington University, University of Connecticut, University of Michigan, Colgate, Hamilton, Middlebury, Skidmore, Bard, Northeastern, The Taft School, Tufts, Tulane, University of Miami, University of Vermont, University of Michigan, Washington College, Villanova, University of Connecticut Medical School
