I’m Jennifer Schoen and I created this site to help students, parents, and high school staff, with the college admissions process, especially the college application itself.
I enjoy writing about and speaking to groups to demystify the college application process, showing students how to be authentic in their writing.
I have 30 years of experience working in colleges – 17 years of them doing admissions work. Head here for more information on me.
In addition to loving my work, I spend my free time bicycling, reading, and traveling. I recently applied and was accepted to a doctoral program, so believe me when I say I totally understand how hard it is to write an admissions essay!
I have been lucky enough to travel to England on a scholarship to study drama, and have enjoyed an amazing bicycle trip in France. I highly encourage my students to study abroad, too, in my work with amazing Boston and Torch scholars at Northeastern University. In my ideal job, I would travel the country by bicycle stopping to speak to students, families and high school staff about college.
I love hearing your questions and comments, so please feel free to email me with your thoughts and what you are struggling with. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’d love for you to join my email list for weekly Power Prompts to help you send in a standout college application and get ready for your first year in college.
