About this livestream

Description

Now that you've probably submitted the bulk of your college applications the next step for a lot of elite schools is to do an alumni interview. These interviews can feel like a big deal since they are usually the only face-to-face interaction an applicant will have with someone who has a say in their admissions decision. Alex will cover what to expect in an alumni interview, the weight they hold, and how to best prepare for one.

Undergrad College: Georgetown University '21

Major: History; Minors in French and Russian

Work Experience: The college applications process is all about responding to one question: who are you? I am passionate about helping students craft a creative answer. I have been helping students gain admission to the T25 schools of their dreams since 2018, when I first started working for CollegeVine as an Applications Consultant, and later, blog writer. Soon after graduating from Georgetown, I started my own company to make college advising my career. I currently mentor students through one-on-one consulting sessions and essay editing.

My Admissions Story: My admissions journey began with a desire to dive into the humanities and have an adventure of self-discovery. I applied to East Coast liberal arts schools that value creativity and specialize in teaching languages, history, and international affairs. One thin deferral letter came in the fall, a thicker envelope came in the spring, and with that, I was accepted to my dream school — Georgetown University!
