Graduate School Admissions Consulting

UPDATE: I will be on maternity leave October – December 2020 and won’t be taking on any new clients at this time. Please reach out to me in January 2021 if you’re interested in working with me. 

For over ten years, I have helped countless individuals apply and get into top master’s and PhD programs in humanities, social science, and STEM fields. I specialize in tailoring to the needs of low-income, first-generation, and underrepresented students, which means that in addition to providing guidance on the process and reviewing application documents, I also demystify graduate school. I believe that everyone should have access to the knowledge and resources necessary to get into a top program that will lead them to a career of their dreams.

My coaching/consulting services will guide you on every step of the application process, including:

  • Creating a timeline and application checklist
  • Building a graduate school list
  • Making the ask—requesting recommendation letters
  • Identifying competitive GRE and GPA scores, and what to do if your scores aren’t strong
  • Preparing for an interview and conducting mock interviews
  • Negotiating funding packages

I also offer editing services where I will review application documents, such as the ones below:

  • Statement of Purpose
  • Personal Statement
  • Diversity Statement
  • CV

Additionally, I am willing to discuss anything that is part of the hidden curriculum in graduate school, such as:

  • Defining graduate school terminology
  • Debunking common graduate school myths
  • Overcoming imposter syndrome
  • Managing microaggressions
  • Dealing with family achievement guilt
  • Working with faculty mentors, postdocs, and PIs

If you’re in need of graduate school consulting and are interested in my services, please fill out my contact form. In my response, I will share with you my rates for services and follow-up on scheduling a free half-hour consultation via phone, Skype, or Zoom.
