Mikey graduated magna cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania with a B.A. in English and a minor in theatre arts. At Penn, he served as a Peer Advisor, helping to facilitate the academic as well as social transition of freshmen in the College of Arts & Sciences, and was also selected from his writing seminar to tutor peers in the undergraduate writing center. Since graduating, he has worked as a college advisor, guiding students in both STEM and the humanities to admission at schools such as Harvard, Princeton, Columbia, Penn, Williams, Johns Hopkins, Emory, Middlebury, WashU, and NYU Stern, among many others. Mikey’s hands-on, collaborative approach to the college admissions process and his prior experiences as a tutor, professional actor, and freelance journalist allow him to form depth and excitement in each advising relationship, as well as in each student’s unique admissions narrative.
