      Our Online Team

      We want you to have access to top notch admissions advice even if the closest Collegewise office is hundreds (or thousands) of miles from where you live. Our online counselors conduct meetings with students from across the country using platforms like Skype and Zoom. The best part? You won't have to leave home to get expert admissions advice and a customized college application plan. 

      Working with Collegewise online means that you'll be meeting with an admissions expert. Our online counselors have worked in admissions offices across the country at universities like Stanford, Colorado College, Harvard, USC, and Columbia. As long as you have a working computer and a willing student, our online counselors will partner with you to take care of the rest. 

      And don't worry—meeting with your counselor online won't make the process any less human. Our online counselors create personal bonds with their students over the course of many meetings (and texts, emails, and phone calls). Your counselor will work closely with your family to ensure that your college questions never go unanswered. 

      We think you'll find your perfect fit by taking a look at our counselors' bios below. We can't wait to hear from you.
