Work Experience: Now in my third year at CollegeVine, I have helped dozens of students gain acceptance to their top-choice schools and have also advised and mentored hundreds more through my livestreams. I am also a professional conductor and a multi-instrumentalist, and I currently serve as the music director of the Apollo Ensemble of Boston and as Opera Saratoga's assistant conductor. I have led symphonic concerts and operatic productions throughout the United States, and I'm looking forward to making my international conducting debut in Vienna this fall.
My Admissions Story: Initially interested in pursuing a career as a performing cellist, I applied almost exclusively to music schools with dual and double degree options and ultimately enrolled in the Tufts University/New England Conservatory Dual Degree Program. Unhappy with the combined program and worried I'd never feel like I was fully a student at either school, I logged back into CommonApp.org in October of my freshman year. I can't say I went about the transfer process in the smartest way (I only applied to two schools!), but Harvard miraculously accepted me (or 'excepted me' as I wrote in a celebratory Facebook post that day - no one ever let me live that one down), and the rest was history.
