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!

Originally from New Jersey, Matt’s career in admissions has sent him all over the country. He started at his alma mater, Gonzaga University, where he scheduled campus visits for prospective students and evaluated applications. He then moved to Upstate New York, spending three years as an Assistant Dean of Admissions for Hamilton College. His territory included much of the west coast, and it was during these recruiting trips that he was exposed to the beauty of the mountains of Colorado. Matt answered the mountain’s call and moved to Denver, spending six years as a college counselor at Kent Denver School. During his time at Kent Denver, he helped redesign and implement a new college counseling model, including teaching a weekly college counseling class, coached soccer, and evaluated applications for a state-wide scholarship program.
When he is not helping students through the college search and application process, Matt likes to spend his time trying out New York Times Cooking recipes, trying not to break anything while skiing and playing soccer, adding to his vinyl collection, and, now that he is back on the east coast, staying up way too late to watch Gonzaga basketball games.
