About

Hello! My name is Alex Zotos and I've worked in the field of college admissions counseling for nearly a decade. Upon graduating from Providence College, I worked in the field of college admissions at three unique institutions across the New England area, including at the University of Rhode Island, Merrimack College, and Colby College. At Colby, I served as a Director of Admissions for Partnerships and Access where I helped to launch an early college readiness program with eighth grade students across the state of Maine. I've also had the opportunity to sit in on various admissions committees and have direct insight into the types of factors that selective colleges are weighing when crafting an incoming freshman class.

In 2020, I "hopped sides of the desk" and transitioned to a new role in college counseling in order to help students and families navigate the ever changing admissions landscape in the United States. In my current role, I serve as an Assistant Director of College Couns...

My process

As an advisor, my goal is to help my students and their families approach this process with a great level of organization and much ease (and some humor when needed!). This includes developing a list of "best fit" colleges for the student, creating an "early game plan" for Early Action and Early Decision, reviewing supplemental essays, and assisting with financial aid planning. Most importantly, my goal is to help students gain the confidence and tools needed to advocate for themselves during this transformative process.
