Having worked with over 400+ students privately, I consistently help students outperform expectations within the admissions process. Due to overwhelming demand from the Reddit community, I have decided to put up my consultation information on this website. Email me to get started on consultation: william.g.reader@gmail.com

FAQ

How long does it take to edit and evaluate my Common Application?

Typically 45 minutes to an hour.

How are consultation sessions usually conducted?

Sessions are conducted through phone calls, Google Hangout, Skype etc.

Why should I NOT hire you?

I specialize in the very top U.S. Colleges (Ivy League Plus), Cambridge/Oxford/UCL, and the University of California system. I prefer not to work with students who are exclusively aiming for universities that are outside of the USNEWS Top 40.

I’m interested in transfer admissions, specialized programs (B.S./M.D. or other dual-degree), and/or I have an untraditional background, can you help?

If you’re aiming for any of the above, you should almost always seek out a professional with admissions office experience. Every year, I help students receive acceptances to prestigious programs such as Brown PLME, UPenn’s dual-degree Huntsman program, and more.

What payment method(s) do you currently accept?

PayPal.

Why did you make this website?

I’m against the idea of marketing myself. However, I receive dozens of messages a day and think it’s much easier to have my information listed in one place.

I appreciate all your work for the Reddit community, can I tip you or send you a Venmo?

I was surprised to receive many of these messages, but I’d prefer that students donate to a worthy cause or charity organization. Here’s a list of some awesome ones!

Due to student demand, I am unable to take new students for the 2022-2023 admissions cycle unless you are referred to me by a former student OR are a transfer/graduate school applicant.
