Admissions & Financial Aid Workshops

Getting into your dream college can feel daunting, but it’s less about secrets and more about understanding what colleges are looking for and how to present yourself in the best possible light. Join Erica Hernandez, a leading admissions consultant in the Bay Area, for a 4 part series to help you stand out. She has devoted 15+ years to education and nonprofit leadership, focusing on admissions and financial aid to get students into their dream colleges from Ivy League colleges, UCs, and CSUs and receive the scholarships and grants necessary to attend.

This series is geared for juniors and seniors in high school.
