"Debbie took the time to get to know Lydia, suggest colleges based on who she really is, and to help her structure herself to get the applications done. The essay was great and Lydia got into all of the colleges she applied to!"

about debbie schwartz
As a college consultant, I will support you and your family throughout the admissions process. My years of experience working in admissions at Yale -- interviewing both U.S. and international applicants, reviewing applications, and participating in admissions committee meetings -- give me an insider’s edge in understanding how you will be viewed as an applicant. I use this knowledge as we work together to strengthen your application and find your "best fit" colleges based on your academic profile, personal preferences, learning style, and areas of interest.
Prior to college consulting, I worked for non-profit organizations and in the adoption community. In 2010 I was a recipient of the Congressional Coalition on Adoption “Angel in Adoption Award" for my work with pre- and post-adoptive families.
I am the parent of two children, one currently attending college in Ohio and the other currently in high school. With offices in New Jersey and Connecticut, I can meet with clients either locally in person or worldwide via the internet.
Over the last five years, the students I've worked with have been accepted to these schools.
