I am fluent in the language of admissions and understand the politics, psychology, culture, rhythm and diplomacy (and bias) at particular schools and key decision-makers and key players.  Parents, no matter their skill sets in finance, business, healthcare, law, IT, marketing, investment banking, etc. will never understand these parameter and matrices and how it affects a child’s admissions process and outcome – I do!”Dr. Paul Lowe
