Q & A
What’s your top piece of advice for admissions candidates?
Too often, otherwise great candidates come off as one-dimensional, or as less impressive than they are, because the admissions committees see the same couple of experiences repeated throughout the application. Rise above the rest by making sure your essays and recommendations (and resume and data sheets) highlight different aspects of your story. You want the admissions committee to feel like they know all of you. That doesn’t happen by being too one-note.
Why are you passionate about coaching?
I love the privilege – and it is a privilege – of getting to know young rising stars and helping them tell their stories and present their best selves. There is a method to it. One that isn't always clear when you haven't done it before or don't have good advice from those who know.
