Christopher LaBounty, College Counselor

Chris is a former MIT admissions counselor, and he also wrote for and managed their mighty admissions blog (read his entries—and see the blog’s cartoon likeness of Chris—here). During his tenure at MIT, Chris read and evaluated international applications from seven countries and made admissions recommendations as a voting member of the committee. A graduate of the University of Oregon and a fanatical fan of Oregon Duck football, Chris has also earned an MBA from Boston University and a master’s degree in teaching from Northeastern University. He regularly gives workshops on admission to US colleges and universities and is the author of “The College Rankings Takedown.” When he’s not counseling or public speaking, Chris enjoys playing FIFA Soccer on the Playstation, and he is an enthusiastic practitioner in the art of glassblowing.
