Admission Counselor

Territory: Virginia, as well as all transfer students younger than 23

We define a transfer student as one who has earned a high school diploma or equivalency and has not graduated college but has taken college-level courses for credit. I work with transfer students who are 23 and younger from across the United States. (Students age 23 or older, please visit the Continuing Education page.)

"The greatest thing you can do as an applicant is put forth your best effort. Dig deep. I am speaking particularly to the population of applicants that aren't able to present the most eye-catching GPA. What are you doing to counteract this? Write me the most creative essay I have ever read, show me what you are doing outside the classroom that drives and motivates you and that you are passionate about, go above and beyond with curating your test optional portfolio."
