Nicole Pilar, College Counselor

Nicole graduated from Pitzer College in Claremont, CA where she also worked as an outreach coordinator for the Claremont Colleges Debate Union, overseeing hundreds of tournaments across the LA metro area and tabulating middle and high school national championships. She took her love of debate with her to Bulgaria on a Fulbright Scholarship. For two years, she taught English, explored Europe, and counselled many of her 400 students through the college application process to universities in Bulgaria, the UK, Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, and the US. Her students have gone on to attend, among others, Purdue, UCLA, University of Washington, SMU, Wake Forest, Princeton University, and the University of Southern California.

Originally from NorCal, Nicole loves her SoCal residency and frequently takes advantage of all it has to offer, including such important highlights as In-N-Out’s shakes, discounted Disneyland annual passes, the beach, and—of course—Costco. In her free time, Nicole will be found reading The Economist, smelling bath bombs at LUSH, judging contestants on “The Bachelor/ette” and geeking out about all things college.
