  • The fundamental components of Ivy and Top 20 admissions

  • The essential planning and preparation process to succeed

  • The most important strategies and secrets to stand out

  • The keys to ace admissions interviews

Whether you are a student or a parent whose student is aiming at top schools, we highly encourage you to attend this webinar and grasp the code to crack elite college admissions. 



Born and raised in Palo Alto, California, Luke ventured to the East Coast for two years at Harvard College before transferring to Stanford University, where he earned his B.A. in English. Since 2003, he has helped hundreds of students achieve academic excellence. A seasoned college counselor, he is particularly proud of the many students he’s helped gain admission to colleges which they thought were beyond their reach, including Stanford, UC Berkeley, Brown, MIT, and many others. He believes studying and college planning should feel empowering and efficient, and works hard to give his students a sense of personal mastery and independence.
