Grant Cushman, College Counselor

With his ten years admissions and candidate management experience, Grant provides his students with holistic counseling. Grant earned his M.Ed. in Education from Chapman University and took on the role of Assistant Director of Undergraduate Admissions, where he devised and implemented student engagement strategy. He then went on to manage all recruitment and counseling as Senior Assistant Director of Admission for University of Richmond’s Western-US Region.

As a recruiter and internship program manager for Riot Games, a video game developer, he was responsible for attracting some of tech’s best and brightest as well as creating a complete training curriculum. But he couldn’t stay away from admissions for long—he soon found himself at Pomona College, where he was once again guiding students through the admissions process. During his time at Collegewise, he has also evaluated applicants for admission to the University of California, San Diego.

With his strong admissions and tech knowledge, Grant offers a balanced approach to counseling: he is data-driven while also offering individualized support to students searching for their best-fit school. In his spare time, Grant enjoys rock-climbing, escape rooms, and reciting Hamilton in its entirety.
