Fewer Acceptances

As applications have skyrocketed, schools have become more selective.   For perspective, the 2013 admission rates at Duke and Vanderbilt (11.6% and 12.0%) were essentially the same as the 2003 rates at Yale and Columbia (11.4% and 12.0%)!

The Right Partner

 

Practical Expertise

I first taught SAT prep at The Princeton Review way, way back in 1987, when I was a sophomore at Columbia College in New York. John Katzman, the founder of the Princeton Review, was one of my instructors. So I’ve been doing this for a very long time.

I graduated from Abington HS, earned my BA from Columbia and was admitted to the Wharton MBA program the following year. As an application and essay coach and tutor for the SAT, ACT, PSAT, SSAT, LSAT, GMAT, GRE and other exams, I have helped thousands of students to achieve their academic dreams.
