Brian Gu

Johns Hopkins University
Hi! My name is Brian and I graduated from Johns Hopkins University in 2021 with a BA in Public Health Studies. While at Hopkins, I was a Pre-Med and heavily involved in medical-related extracurriculars such as biochemistry and immunology research, clinical volunteering, and being Editor-In-Chief of a medical news journal. I also interned in the field of public health, completing internships in tobacco policy research and mental health research. I spent one gap year working as a medical assistant at an orthopedic clinic and will attend the University of Iowa for medical school in Fall 2022.I previously worked as an Applications Consultant at CollegeVine for two years, guiding clients through all aspects of the college applications process including school list creation, essay editing, and interview prep. In particular, I have a thorough understanding of how to write successful college essays from my own experiences of applying to college and medical school as well as editing my clients' essays. My clients have achieved acceptances to schools like Duke and Dartmouth, as well as the Brown Program in Liberal Medical Education.

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!
