My professional experience in admissions at an Ivy League university, decades of admissions consulting to individual applicants and institutions, and my personal experience working with my own children (my toughest clients yet!) have given me the insider information, organizational strategy, and perspective needed as you embark upon this journey.
I know why some students get into their top choice school while comparable applicants are rejected. And I know how important “fit” is to a student's academic experience.
If you or your child attends a school that is a poor fit, or gets rejected from schools that are a better fit, much can be lost. I have seen students lose confidence, become desperately unhappy (even clinically depressed), and transfer to another school. Transferring to another school, or switching programs partway through, can necessitate additional years of study, time and money.
My goal is to help you navigate the admissions process with the greatest of ease and the best of outcomes. No one knows you or your child like you do, and no one knows more about admissions than I do. Working together, we can be formidable.
It’s never too early to start. Contact me now so we can work together to prepare you and yours for a joyful and fruitful educational experience and a bright future!

I have known Debra Felix for almost 30 years, beginning when she was the Director of MBA admissions at Columbia University’s Business School and I was in admissions at Wharton. I can say with confidence that Deb is one of the most conscientious, fair, kind-hearted people I know. She is testament to the philosophy that giving the best of yourself can be the most effective way to help others be their best, too. Deb’s client-centered approach serves applicants extraordinarily well.
