Greetings! My name is Donald and am a corporate attorney in San Francisco. As for my educational background, I attained my bachelors degree in Individualized Study (with a concentration in political science) from New York University, my masters in educational policy from Harvard University and my law degree from Northwestern University.

Although I am a lawyer, I have always had an underlying passion for education and helping people achieve their educational goals. While my diverse educational background includes expertise in the area of law, political science and education, I am also very adept and skilled in assisting students with the entire college and graduate school application process, as I gained admission to some of the world's leading universities including, Harvard, The London School of Economics, New York University and Northwestern.

If you would like to know more about me, I am happy to share. Feel free to contact me with questions if you would like to know more. I look forward to hearing from you!

College Counseling

Greetings! My name is Donald and I look forward to assisting you in the college counseling process. I am an attorney at San Francisco's leading law firm, but I have a strong background in education. I received my B.A. in Policy Studies from NYU, my masters in Educational Policy from Harvard and my law degree from Northwestern. Additionally, I have either worked in or for the admissions office at NYU, Harvard and Northwestern at varying points. My experience in this regard has allowed me to get a keen sense of what elite schools are looking for in a candidate's application and how we can best express who you are in your application.

I am willing to assist you with all aspects of the college admissions process, including editing your personal statement, revising your resume and organizing your application generally. I am happy to provide additional details about my credentials upon request and look forward to working with you in the future!
