It felt like we sent Blake on a journey in a faraway land, and he got a tour guide who told him what paths to try and which to turn away from. Not having been in this strange land ourselves, as parents, our greatest fear was we would give wrong directions. Great experience, comfortable for Blake from start to finish!

Collegewise helped make my daughter’s college application process smooth and painless. In the end, my daughter was accepted to and will be attending her first choice school, USD. I could not be more thrilled for Alana, and I owe so much to Collegewise for making my daughter’s dream school a reality!

Collegewise provided me with a better understanding of the college application and decision process than I thought possible. Collegewise’s guidance throughout the process allowed me to really figure out what I was looking for in a college, while also maximizing my options.

I would often be stressed about what I needed to get done or about how things were turning out, but every time I walked out of the office, I was so at ease. I think the most important part about being at Collegewise was how personalized the process was, and how much care and time and effort went into me specifically.

Going to my meetings at Collegewise never felt like a chore, but more as something to look forward to! Everyone in the office is so friendly, willing to help, and made for such great motivators and supporters when it came time to fill in apps and write essays. 10/10!

The college application process is confusing and tedious, and Collegewise really helped with that process. It was reassuring to go over my application with my counselor so that we could make sure that I had a better chance of getting in!

Aaron has been involved in multiple facets of education for over eight years, with most of it spent as a college counselor. His experiences at a CBO, a public charter school, and, most recently, at a highly regarded private school, combined with being a first-generation college student himself, have honed a strong student-centered college counseling approach. While masterful at the mechanics and systems of applying to college, Aaron seeks to treat each student as an individual and meet them where they are as he guides them through the process and to their goals. His students have attended schools ranging from the most selective of the Ivies to small liberal arts colleges to large public institutions. He’s seen and done it all.
He has worked with students from over 20 countries and is adept at connecting with each student individually, whether it’s nerding out about history, music, sports, gaming, or anything else they’re passionate about. Through hard work (and laughter), Aaron focuses on the guidance they need to meet their dreams and aspirations. When he’s not in the office, you will find him hanging with his pup Darla, catching a sporting event (Go Steelers!), or traveling.
