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!

Serving as the primary onboarding and compliance officer for PharmD clinical experiences and rotations at the University of Washington School of Pharmacy, David understands the importance of meeting deadlines, maintaining internal program compliance, and meeting thresholds for external program clearance; supporting students as they obtain educational goals and aspirations.
Before UW and Collegewise, David served as a student worker in the Admission Office of Colorado College before graduating in 2012 where he then went on to serve as the primary Colorado College Admission Counselor for recruitment in Alaska, Washington state, Oregon, part of Northern California and the international territories of Canada and Latin America. After traversing the longitudes of the western hemisphere for another 4 years, David relocated to Seattle - working first for a couple years outside higher education with WeWork and then as a Director of Enrollment Management for a Chilean exchange semester high school.
David experienced first-hand the incredible opportunities and communities that a best-fit college can open doors to. Having dove head-on into the college search process and finding an awesome fit for himself, he works to emulate this rewarding experience and is excited to support others find these in their own personal college searches, now as a Collegewise counselor.
