Peter Van Buskirk, the former Dean of Admission at Franklin & Marshall College, has been where you are sheparding his own children through the college admission process. He understands the planning and decision-making that goes into finding the perfect college for your child. As a 25-year veteran of the selective admission process, including nearly a decade as Dean of Admission at Franklin & Marshall College, he also has a thorough behind the scenes understanding of the pressures that influence admission committees as they decide whom to admit.

Winning The College Admission Game has been presented to more than 500 high school, summer camp, and corporate audiences worldwide totaling nearly 60,000 people.

 

Peter s expertise is often cited in the national media and his articles on the college-admission process have appeared in numerous professional journals.
