Charlie Duffy, College Counselor

Charlie has spent over ten years in the world of college admissions. Splitting his time as an admissions officer at several universities on the East and West Coasts and as a college counselor in high school settings, Charlie has seen the college process unfold from “both sides of the desk.” At UC San Diego’s admissions office, he recruited students to UCSD and served as an application reader in the review process. Additionally, Charlie was an Associate Director of College Counseling at highly regarded private schools in Florida and California before joining Collegewise. During that time, he provided individualized guidance to each of his students going through the college process- from brainstorming essay ideas to helping students form their college lists and everything in between.

When working with students and their families, Charlie’s main objective is to have open and clear communication while tailoring his counseling to the goals, abilities, and aspirations of each of the students he is working with. With his deep experience, he is familiar with nearly all scenarios and nuances and enjoys guiding each and every student to their “home.” Through small, achievable action items after meetings, he successfully works with students who are everything from anxious to procrastinators to the most ambitious aiming for Ivies.

When he’s not in the office, you’ll likely find Charlie out for a run or spending time at the beach with family and friends. Whether hiking in the mountains or swimming in the ocean, you can find this outdoor enthusiast exploring nature when he’s taking a screen break.
