About this livestream

Description

In this stream, Alexander Oddo gives you the breakdown on extracurriculars! You'll learn how to enhance your extracurricular profile and receive advice on approaching extracurriculars, so that you can develop a "spike" rather than the all-too-common "renaissance" profile.

Alexander will give you a rundown on how to cultivate a strong narrative through your extracurriculars, and administer plenty of tips and tricks you'll need in order to find your spike and make your profile stand out to admissions officers.

You'll be able to drop all your admissions-related questions in the chat so that Alexander can give you personalized advice and direction on your ECs.

Bio
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. Soon after graduating from Georgetown University with a B.A. in History and minors in French and Russian (I also speak Portuguese), I made college advising my career.

I currently mentor students through one-on-one consulting sessions. I specialize in helping international applicants and college essay writing. I also have expertise in MBA applications, and helped an entrepreneur who did not finish undergrad gain admission to the Cambridge Judge MBA program. When I am not advising or hosting a CollegeVine livestream, you can find me taking a road trip or reading a novel in French.
