Community service is a great way to give back while demonstrating to colleges that you have the qualities necessary to be a good peer on campus and in the community.
In this stream, Alex will discuss the ins and outs of community service, and how you can enhance your current service profile. He'll offer tips on how to find good community service opportunities.
He'll also cover how community service has changed during the COVID era, and offer some advice for integrating your activities into your essays in order to present yourself in the best light possible to admissions officers!
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!
