Peter, a graduate of Syracuse University, is a former ranked tennis player and instructor who is an avid student of the game. A problem solver by nature, Peter made the decision to enter the college admissions consulting field after helping his daughter, a junior tennis player, successfully navigate the college admissions and scholarship process while being recruited by a number of top academic programs. Peter discovered that identifying and getting admitted to the best school for her required taking a long-term view while considering a multitude of variables. Peter also realized that in an increasingly competitive admissions environment, tennis would be a great hook for her.
