Proven Expertise

I graduated from the University of Chicago with a Bachelor of Arts in English and from Stanford University with a Masters of Arts in Communications.

I was an Alumna Interviewer and Admissions Reader for the University of Chicago, where I used the university's secret alphanumeric ranking system to help accept 8% of applicants.

I was an Admissions Reader for UC Berkeley's Management, Entrepreneurship, & Technology Program—a dual business and engineering program with a 2% acceptance rate. 

I was an Admissions Reader for LaunchX, a prestigious, selective entrepreneurship program.

I work closely with a former Stanford Admissions Reader, who gives my students an extra edge.

Testimonials

“In August, when the idea of college applications became a serious task, I was stressed and intimidated. However, Marcella's incredible help throughout the whole process made the seemingly impossible into a completely manageable process. I thank her so incredibly much for being so real and supportive with my college endeavors. I just found out that I was accepted early to Yale—thanks to all her help and guidance.

– Daniel, Yale class of 2022
