Individualized Admissions Consulting

I specialize in helping business school and college candidates understand their individual strengths and weaknesses, what makes them unique, and how to strategically communicate this information to admissions teams. By limiting my client roster, I can devote personal attention and significant time to each candidate.

I have more than a decade of admissions experience, including my time as the Associate Director of Admissions at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth and on Dartmouth’s undergraduate admissions committee.  I was the lead diversity recruiter at Tuck and also served as a Trustee and Chair of the Executive Committee for the Consortium for Graduate School Management.

My clients are so successful because I understand why schools ask the questions they do, who to choose as recommenders, what anecdotes to share, how to articulate goals, how to address areas of concern, and how to shine in interviews. North Star offers a comprehensive selection of services to help you throughout the admissions process.

In 2013, 100% of North Star clients who signed on for comprehensive packages at least two months before the application deadline were admitted to more than one of their top choices, with substantial funding.
