In one way or another, Jazzmin has spent the entirety of her career guiding students through the college admissions process. Her career in admissions started at Yale, where she worked as both a Summer Recruitment Coordinator and as a Summer Residential Counselor. In these roles, Jazzmin answered students’ (and parents’) questions about Yale’s admissions process and mentored a group of incoming Yale first-years. She then accepted a position as a College Access Fellow at 12+, where she worked closely with high school juniors and seniors, helping them interpret financial aid packages and guiding them through the often difficult college search and selection process. In 2015, she made her way to California, working as an admissions officer and later as Assistant Dean of Admissions at Pomona College.
Jazzmin’s extensive career in admissions makes her the perfect person to guide students through the intricacies of the college application process, and her personality allows her to make the process fun (seriously!). Her yearbook superlative award was for “Silliest Staff Member,” and you can often find her listening (and singing and dancing along) to her favorite musicals.

What are people saying about Collegewise?
I absolutely loved Collegewise! They were extremely helpful, and I felt really good about my application. I would have never known where or how to apply without Collegewise. They made the application process much easier to understand. It was a fantastic decision to go with Collegewise!

Collegewise helped me find the dream school I didn’t even know existed, and then gave me the tools to create my best application possible.
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!

I had a wonderful experience with Collegewise! Collegewise made the college application process so much less stressful, and thanks to their help, I know I will be attending the school that’s right for me next year!
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!

Audrey found the perfect fit for her and received enough scholarship money to make the school affordable for us. We highly recommend Collegewise for busy families like ours.
