Jeb

Bio

Jeb grew up on a beautiful, bucolic island near Seattle. Long commutes into the city to attend school gave him ample time to read and write, and he became a lover of books and developed an interest in English grammar and language at an early age. He received his B.A. in international relations from Brown University, graduating magna cum laude. At Brown, he also received an Undergraduate Teaching and Research Award and he was a national finalist for the Rhodes Fellowship.

In 2012, Jeb was the winner of the Craig Cambridge Fellowship, which finances a graduate degree at Cambridge University, and he soon purchased a robe and moved overseas to the Harry Potter-like halls of Cambridge. He completed an MPhil in Political Thought and Intellectual History in 2013, writing his thesis on the intersection between linguistics and political philosophy.

Jeb has worked as an admissions coach for every type of college and graduate program for over five years with great success. His clients have been accepted into top UK and US universities as well as highly competitive graduate programs. He derives great joy out of working with students to develop applications that are memorable and intelligent, and that most effectively channel their unique voices and stories.

In his spare time these days, Jeb reads books on science (physics and biology are his favorite fields) and studies Arabic.

Testimonials

    "Jeb is a complete pro-- he had perfect advice regarding every matter. He is a very good writer and did wonders for editing my writing. He always responded quickly, and researched each college I was applying to, to get an even better handle on what they were looking for. I applied to three schools and have received one interview thus far. I expect at least one more, and believe that without Jeb's help I would not have been as successful so far."

    ""I worked with Jeb just for secondaries and interview prep and he was great at accommodating my crazy work schedule so we could still get everything submitted in a timely manner. I appreciated that he took the time to get to know me up front as it made the whole process easier and helped me say what I wanted to say in my essays without it ever feeling fake. That extended to the interview prep as well. I feel like Jeb helped me decide how I wanted to present myself to schools and really stick to that narrative for both interviews and essays. Jeb was awesome!"
