Introduction: Thank you for visiting my profile! Why hire me? I love helping students through each step of the college application journey, and hope I can help you too! For the past 11 years, I have guided high school students through the college admissions process. My students have been accepted into top tier programs, both private and public universities. My professional background is in recruiting and sales. Guiding others through big life decisions and, writing and sharing a compelling story are my talents and what I love to do. What I do: (1) Determine where to apply to school: Figuring out what you want to do for the rest of your life and what school is best to support your dreams is no small task. Before we do anything, I first get to know you, learn your short and long-term goals and understand what you want to achieve during and after college. From there, we determine your college application list and our game plan together. (2) Craft your story: As a small child and young adult, you have lived through many wonderful learning experiences. It is my job to help you figure out what stories are most important to you, most relevant to your story and most important to share with colleges. (3) Write your essays: Writing compelling stories is my one of my biggest strength. Once we finalize your story, we will apply it across all of the essays you need to write - both long and short. We will work together to both create an outline, as well as edit and fine tune the final versions. (4) Interview preparation: If you apply to colleges with an interview, I will help you prep! My professional background is in Human Resources and Recruiting and I am well-versed in preparing for an interview. (5) Create your resume: From figuring out the order of your activities, to writing the short blurbs under each activity, I am here to help you create your college application resume. Why am I qualified: (1) I have worked with high school students throughout the college preparation process for the past 11 years. My students have gotten into both top tier schools, both private and public schools. (2) Professionally, my background is in recruiting and sales. Guiding others, and writing a compelling story are my talents and what I love to do. (3) I have a B.S. in Communication from Cornell University and an MBA from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. My degrees are great, but really, you want to hire me because I will work tirelessly to help you get into the school of your dreams. I promise, I won't let you down. I look forward to working with you.

Sami is extremely helpful during the college admissions process. She encouraged me to persevere during stressful times and helped me create my college essay in just a few days. I highly recommend her to anybody who needs extra help applying to college.

Sami's willingness to share her skills, knowledge, and expertise of the college application process with me got me into an amazing college. I was very fortunate to have such an amazing mentor who provided me with so much support and encouragement. Who gave me feedback on my progress by meeting with me regularly and kept me on task. Applying to college is stressful, but with the support of a mentor like Sami, it will feel like a breeze.

Sami is incredibly organized and strategic in her approach to college applications. She takes a holistic approach to the process, and works to highlight each applicants’ strengths. She truly goes above and beyond in making sure any essays are well crafted and intentional. Her knowledge of student life at top competitive colleges is so helpful in terms of figuring out what schools will be the best fit for different personalities and learning styles. Sami is top of the line!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I provide a custom quote for every customer that works with me. We first figure out what you need and then determine the right package for you.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Typically, I like to understand where the student is in the college application process, and what his or her goals are in working with me. Then, we game plan together and determine the process that works for both of us.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have a BS in Communication from Cornell University (and an MBA from the Kellogg School of Management). I also have many years of experience working in recruiting and sales, and fully understand how to create compelling stories.
