For 10 years I’ve been helping students hear those four wonderful words, “Congratulations, you’ve been accepted…”

Columbia University, BA; Columbia School of the Arts, Master of Fine Arts I discovered my passion and talent for admissions consulting over a decade ago when I was a private writing tutor in New York City; my training in writing, theater, and film lends itself naturally to the creation of compelling and coherent narratives. Since then I have enjoyed coaching candidates to weave their attributes and accomplishments into honest essays that fit their target schools. Oh, and the first time I heard a college admissions client scream into the phone: “I got in!” I was hooked. Since then I have consulted with dozens of college and graduate school applicants on their choice of schools, personal essays, and overall application profiles.  I have been fortunate to meet and work with a very diverse group of domestic and international students in person and on Skype. The best part of my job is the knowledge that I am helping students who are going to change the world for the better, even if they don’t know exactly how to do it — yet.

A published author and longtime Creative Writing Instructor at the Columbia University Summer High School Program, I use my breadth of writing and teaching experience to support and guide applicants through a writing process that is expedient and effective. I engage all types and levels of writers in dynamic dialogues that result in vivid and well-crafted narratives that speak directly to admissions officers. I am also a member of AIGAC (Association of International Graduate Admissions Counselors AIGAC.ORG). Debra Resnicoff (646) 535.3815 Contact Me
