Classes and Camps

 

Education is an enormous investment, and professional advice can make all the difference. But you don’t want this advice to cost a fortune, either. I have designed these group experiences as an efficient and enjoyable way to learn the things you need to know. At my seminars and camps we teach you about education and college at critical turning points in the process, at an affordable cost.

Comments From Students

I just wanted to give you an update on my plans for next year and to thank you again for all your wonderful help and advice. I ended up getting accepted straight out to University of Washington and getting interviews at Caltech and UCSF. Fortunately it looks like UCSF is the best fit for me (great synthetic biology research, close ties to emerging biotech industry and a vibe that I really liked). Thanks again for your help! Your input was invaluable in helping me get into a great program that I really like.
