About

Over the past two years, Pascale has helped over a dozen students with every aspect of the college application process, from crafting a comprehensive list of schools to editing and polishing Common Application and school-specific supplemental essays. She graduated from Yale University with a Bachelor of Arts in English and French this past spring. Pascale worked as a tutor in both high school and college, and after graduation, she realized that she missed working with students. Having loved her own college experience, she is excited to help each of her clients apply to the best schools for their unique set of goals. While she enjoys working with clients with a diverse range of dream schools, she is especially familiar with the Ivy League admissions process, as she reviewed her own admissions file with a member of the Yale Admissions Office.

My process

My clients have grown up across the U.S. and have come from a variety of ethnic, cultural, and academic backgrounds. I have worked with students who required considerable help with the entire application process, from start to finish, as well as with clients who were hoping to attend elite institutions and wanted to refine their essays. With every student, my first step is to understand how their academic, extracurricular, and personal background intersects with their goals for the college process. Next, we pinpoint the parts of the application process they need help with. Finally, we determine the best ways to communicate exactly why their dream schools should want them and what they would contribute to those schools.
