Episode 030: How to Get in to Stanford, Harvard, Berkeley or Yale Ft. Marcella De Laurentiis

Student-Tutor Mentor, Marcella De Laurentiis

Featuring: Marcella De Laurentiis, College Admissions Specialist

Mentor Bio:

Marcella started her career working in the admissions office at the University of Chicago, her alma mater. Later, she joined UC Berkeley’s Management, Entrepreneurship, and Technology program— an elite program that only accepts 2% of applicants. Now, she sits on the opposite side of the table, helping talented students realize their college dreams. She founded HelpWithApps.com to help students maximize their chances for admission to the nation’s top universities. Despite top universities’ single digit acceptance rates, four out of every five of her students are accepted to schools like Stanford, Harvard, Berkeley and Yale.
