Kristen founded Moon Prep after spending over a decade as an SAT tutor and instructor. She saw her students scoring in the top percentiles, yet they still weren’t being accepted to their top-choice colleges.
At first glance, it wasn’t apparent what went wrong. The students had high GPAs, top SAT scores, and impressive extracurricular activities. After closer examination, it became clear what the issue was: THE APPLICATION.
The application did not set the student apart from the pack. It failed to convey what they had to offer the college and why they were a great fit.
By utilizing the valuable branding and marketing strategies she learned while getting her MBA from Emory University and drawing from her experience working with students over the years, Kristen created a series of detailed action items that help applicants go the extra mile, communicate their value, and stand out from the masses. The Moon Prep team is trained in this unique methodology and are always finding new ways for their students to create college applications that will jump out to college admissions officers, landing students in the college of their choice.
