Founder & President
Kevin McMullin is the founder & president of Collegewise, the nation’s largest college counseling company. Since launching the business in 1999 when he drove to seven families’ homes to work with students at their kitchen tables, Collegewise has grown to over 30 locations domestically and internationally, and helped over 8,000 families enjoy less stressful, more successful, college application processes. He is also the author of If the U Fits: Expert Advice on Finding the Right College and Getting Accepted, and writes every day sharing free advice on his blog. A sought-after public speaker, Kevin has given over 700 presentations at high schools, colleges, conferences, and student-parent events to share his advice on smarter, saner college planning. As long as those presentations never require Kevin to do any math problems, he always does a bang up job. A graduate of UC Irvine with majors in English and history where he answered, “What are you going to do with those majors?“ approximately 783 times, Kevin also holds a college counseling certification from UCLA. When he’s not speaking, writing, and penning bios about himself in the third person, Kevin enjoys running half-marathons, using half-marathon running as an excuse to enjoy beer and pizza, and spending time with his wife, Rosie, and young son, Ryan.
