Rachel Collins is a college admissions/applications reader at Berkeley and Stanford. She is also a college consultant who helps students get admitted to their top choice schools, thus she is able to view the applications/admissions process from both sides of the table.

After making thousands of decisions on who got in and who did not, she reverse-engineered how to help students get accepted. Rachel Collins was recognized by US News & World Report as one of the Top 10 College Consultants in the US.

Come learn from Rachel about what top schools call ‘‘points of excellence’’, how to arrive at topics that best reveal intellectual curiosity, and what it takes to create a project that reflects your student’s passions in order to land a spot at a dream school. Students and counselors also welcome.

All lunch and learns are $10 at the door.
