how do you stand ouT?
You've heard that highly selective universities—like Stanford, MIT, Yale, and more—received record-breaking numbers of applicants last year. Already-low acceptance rates plummeted.
You wonder how you can even compete.
Marcella can help
Marcella graduated from the University of Chicago with a Bachelor of Arts in English and from Stanford University with a Masters of Arts in Communications.
She was an Alumna Interviewer and Admissions Reader for the University of Chicago, where she used the university's secret alphanumeric ranking system to help accept 8% of applicants.
She was an Admissions Reader for UC Berkeley's Management, Entrepreneurship, & Technology Program, which had a 2% acceptance rate.
She works with a former Stanford Admissions Reader to give her students an extra edge.

WHAT OTHER STUDENTS SAY
KATHERINE, EXPANDING HORIZONS EDUCATIONAL CONSULTING
You are a wonderful presenter, Marcella; you have a gift! I have been eager to try to help 'every' student, but now I see the benefits to focusing on what kind of student would be a good match for me. I need to reflect on the kinds of students I want to attract and update my website to attract those types of families.
ELLEN, SOUTH BAY EDUCATIONAL CONSULTANTS
I am in year 7 and am busting at the seams with prospects and clients. But I do not have former admissions experience, so I feel I cannot charge more than what test prep companies are charging per hour... I feel empowered to increase my rates because I have a strong niche with a certain high school in an affluent community. Thank you so much for sharing your wealth of knowledge!
MARGE, ENGINEERING NEXT
Marcella encouraged me to: rethink how I present my niche (women in engineering is my specialty and should be "front and center"), re-evaluate my use of "we" vs "me" (clients want to know and trust *me*), and rethink my pricing. Great talk, timely content, helpful case studies!
