About this livestream


If your teen is applying to college, the fall of senior year is crunch time, and your student is likely feeling the pressure.

But college applicants aren’t the only ones under stress during application season; the stress can rub off on the entire family—especially you, the parents. The nature of college admissions is constantly changing, and helping your high school student keep track of everything could be its own part-time job.

Join Alex as he guides you through the admissions process, so that you can best provide your student with the support that they'll need during this stressful time.

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!
