Marco helped me focus my college search to make it more manageable. At our first meeting he helped me define my areas of interest and what campus environments I could see myself in for the next four years. The next time we met, Marco had created a personal binder for me with as many tabs as my English notebook, only better organized. He suggested schools that I had overlooked or never heard of, and helped me look deeper into what life at different campuses was really like, beyond just the academics. As I took this approach further, it gradually led me to the university that I am now really excited to attend.

I’d spent one semester at a college in Oregon that just didn’t fit my personality. After I came back to Boulder I met Marco. Together we investigated different programs that could help me define what I wanted to do professionally. I ended up picking the National Outdoor Leadership School, in Lander, Wyoming. NOLS helped me discover my leadership potential and my aptitude for working in challenging situations. I’m now at the University of Colorado, double majoring in film production and international relations. Through it all, Marco helped me to believe in myself and to figure out who I really wanted to be.

Marco's interview prep was immensely helpful for me. Like a real interviewer, Marco asks the difficult questions; unlike a real interviewer, he videotapes your practice sessions and gives you feedback on both your answers and your mannerisms. Definitely recommended, especially for those applying to schools with emphasis on the interview!
