Mollie Reznick, College Counselor

College counseling is in Mollie’s DNA. A third-generation educational consultant, Mollie knew terms like yield, retention rate, and institutional priorities before even applying to college herself. The minute she got her driver’s license, she began driving her mother all over the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic visiting colleges and meeting admissions folks. Having her mother as her college consultant made the application process exceptionally easy, and she loves to find ways to make the process as fun and painless as possible for her students and their families. She believes strongly in the value of higher education, academically and socially, and thinks that finding those best fit colleges can make all of the difference in the trajectory of a young person’s life.

Throughout college and graduate school, Mollie continued to accompany her mother on college visits, so that by the time she decided to join her mother in business, she had a strong sense of the process, and had already been on dozens of campuses. As a new, young college counselor, she made the process hers, developing her own ways of approaching the essays and relating to the students. She went on to design and implement a college essay bootcamp that she ran for clients and at a local tutoring company. Between her private counseling and working/volunteering at multiple schools and organizations in New York City, Mollie has probably read approximately 6,547 college essays and is still just as excited about starting the college process with each new student!

Outside of counseling, Mollie loves playing nerdy board games, does the New York Times Crossword Puzzle daily (yes, even Saturday!), and recently completed her first novel (well except all that pesky editing!)
