Introduction: 🎓📚I consult with students through the college planning and admissions process—preparing competitive college applicants ✏️📆. ⬇️LEARN MORE⬇️ Hi: I'm Dr. Leslie Tucker, owner of Virtual College Consulting and an associate member of the Independent Educational Consulting Association. I’ve toured hundreds of colleges, networked with admissions reps from across the country, and edited every type of college essay you can imagine. I absolutely love being a college planning consultant! I hope you’ll give me the opportunity to guide you through the college planning process. I use a "holistic approach" lens when working with students. Today’s college admissions are not just centered around grades and standardized test scores, but rather a “holistic approach” is used in the selection process. Academic rigor, intellectual curiosity, depth in activities lists, and a commitment to learning are all significant factors. Through a systematic approach, we will work together to ensure you are as competitive of an applicant as you want to be. Strong college essays that demonstrate something about character, values, and life that align with the culture and values of an institution offer a compelling edge. —A favorite part of my work! We will work together to brainstorm, build and refine your college essays. Our work together will ensure a list of colleges that you would love to attend—a balanced list of varying probabilities to leverage buying power. Secure as much money in scholarships as possible and sign the dotted line of your future college home. Interested in major and career exploration? Another favorite part of my work! These pieces are a part of my comprehensive packages. Goals always reside with the student. I work with students that are laser focused in getting into highly selective schools, our work together reflects this. Other students' focus is on getting into the best school for the best price, our work together is reflective. Regardless of students' goals, my goal is to support students earned merit scholarships. The depth of students' overall applications is a direct reflection of merit scholarship opportunities. I never underestimate the value of fit. How students FEEL when on campus, academic opportunities, study abroad experiences, and overall fit are all extremely important for graduation rates. My greatest satisfaction is to watch my students start college filled with confidence. They’ve gone through the college planning process, they know their strengths and interests, and are excited about their future.

Dr. Tucker has been an amazing college consultant! I have been working with Dr. Tucker for over a year now and have communicated with her via Zoom meetings, emails and text messages. She has helped me write and edit my personal statement and supplemental essays for college. She responds quickly and gives me the detailed feedback I need to improve my essays. Whenever I have a question I can contact Dr. Tucker and she always gets back to me. I am so thankful to have her as my college consultant. Dr. Tucker makes sure to keep in contact and check up on her clients after they graduate high school and have now entered college. 😁

Dr. Tucker’s services are well worth the investment! Helped my daughter earn acceptances to her top 3 schools: NYU, BU, and Bentley. Went with Bentley, couldn’t pass up the $120,000 scholarship. Thank you for helping our family through the madness of college admissions.

I first got in touch with Dr. Tucker this summer when looking for an advisor to get me through PA school application process. She has been so incredible throughout this entire journey. She is so helpful, so organized and so thorough. She always makes time to speak and touch base with me, and a great person to bounce ideas off of. Very reassuring, incredibly resourceful, and makes sure to be on top of deadlines. The application process can be so stressful, but Dr. Tucker makes it easier and plays to your unique strengths. She goes above and beyond for her students and you can tell she truly wants to see her clients succeed. I can not say enough great things about my experience with her. Would highly recommend!!
