Harvard College, BA, 2001
Harvard University, Admissions Officer, covering recruiting and
admissions for students from Pennsylvania
PGSS exposed me to a caliber of student, teacher and coursework that I did not and could not have experienced in my rural PA publicschool. It opened my eyes to a much bigger world, and showed me to aim high in my college application process. Out of 90 students in myPGSS class, 9 of us were in the same freshman class at Harvard the next year. I come from a single-parent family in rural Pennsylvania, where Harvard is not usually on anyone’s radar. PGSS changed that for me and now I’m excited to be recruiting students from Pennsylvania for Harvard.
