Andrew Meyers has dedicated over 30 years to high school and college education.  He has counseled students in the college process for over 15 years, at The Fieldston School, Living City Project, and independently.

"Applying to college is about fit, not prestige. Students I have counseled think broadly and creatively about who they are and who they would like to become, developing a list of schools that reaches beyond the predictable, to find a college experience that truly serves and challenges them. My counselees, learn how to present themselves authentically and powerfully, successfully entering their top choice 85% of the time, and one their top three choices 98% of the time."
