Vince Ricci – College & Grad School Counselor
Since 1990, I have built on my Stanford improv training to coach hundreds of successful applicants, authors, and entrepreneurs.
VincePrep turned 15 in 2022

I also expanded my counseling service to help high school students and their families gain admission to highly-selective admissions to US colleges and universities.
