Hola! I am a Barcelona-based independent university admissions advisor. My personal academic journey includes a BA in English from University of Pennsylvania, an MBA from UCLA, an MPP (Master in Public Policy) from Princeton University, and a Certificate in College Counseling from UCLA.
I believe that there are several colleges and universities that are a perfect fit for each student. My job is to support the student applicant and his/her family through the application process, making it a fun exploration of finding the university where the student belongs and will grow and thrive.
I work with students and families both in-person and virtual. In order to provide the best and most responsive service and support possible, I only take a limited number of clients.
Why Hire an Independent Education Counselor?
The university admissions process can be overwhelming. It may be even more daunting for students outside the United States who do not know where to begin the process. There are over 2400 4-year colleges and universities in the United States. Colleges have different strengths and areas of focus, different entrance and test requirements, and different application processes and deadlines.
As a high school student, you must decide what kind of college or university experience you are seeking. Are you looking for the “traditional” big university experience, with a culture that revolves around Fraternities and Sororities, and big sporting events? Are you looking for intimate seminar-type classes, where you are on a first-name basis with your professor? Do you want early access to research opportunities? Do you want to be in a big city, or do you prefer to have access to mountains and outdoor activities (or both!)? Do you want to be in an international environment?
Universitú will help you navigate through the entire application process, from preparing yourself as a college candidate, to identifying the “best fit” colleges and universities, assisting completion of the application process, and reviewing the offers of admissions.
