How can I help?

While I am willing to help clients apply anywhere, I like to specialize

  • For MBA, I am most passionate about covering what I call The Magnificent Nine
    • Harvard, Stanford, Wharton, Columbia, MIT, Chicago Booth, Kellogg, LBS, INSEAD

I also have deep expertise helping people get admitted to and attending MBA programs at

  • MIT Sloan Fellows, Berkeley Haas, Yale SOM, Dartmouth Tuck, UCLA Anderson, Michigan Ross, and Duke Fuqua

While I was admitted to Harvard, and Columbia (full scholarship plus a 50,000 USD annual stipend), I chose to pursue my Education Masters degree (Digital Media Design for Learning) at NYU

  • I was also admitted to the highly competitive NYU Tisch ITP program
  • At the end of the day, I wanted to learn hands on video and web production with fellow educators

Over the years,

  • I have helped clients get admitted to public policy programs at Harvard Kennedy School and other leading programs
  • I also love helping people get admitted to educations master programs at places like Harvard, Columbia, Penn, NYU and others
  • On the law side, I have helped clients get admitted to LLM programs at Stanford, Berkeley, UPenn, Columbia and others
  • Perhaps my favorite clients are those pursuing design degrees; I helped the first Japanese admitted to Stanford d.school and MIT IDM
  • I have helped clients get admitted to other top programs including the prestigious Masters in Design program at Chicago's IIT Institute of Design
  • If you are interested in design programs, please contact me. I am happy to refer former clients who secured admissions offers to these programs with my assistance

As for college admissions, I feel most confident helping people apply to the schools that admitted me

Those include

  • Harvard, Stanford, Yale, Princeton, Brown, UC Berkeley (with a full scholarship), UW Seattle, and Wesleyan

I also feel confident helping people apply to schools I have visited, know well, and where I have helped family and friends get admitted

Those include

  • MIT, Williams, UCLA, Smith, Vassar, and Cambridge (UK)

If you don't see your dream school on the above or below lists, please don't worry

  • I consider myself to be a student of schools
  • I love digging deep to helping clients find their match and make their best fit with a wide range of distinguished, highly-competitive undergraduate and graduate programs around the world
