Bethany's story

I grew up in Louisville, Kentucky. Being a first-generation college applicant, I was alone in college research, writing essays, and gathering materials. Luckily, I was a good writer, winning several essay contests throughout high school. Leading up to my University of Chicago acceptance, I spent many Saturdays at the library, reading every admissions guidebook to help me craft a stellar application. Motivated by this experience, I want to make sure that students have the guidance they need for college admissions and financial aid. As such, I founded Stand Out College Prep in 2012. Since then, I have helped hundreds of students get admitted into their top-choice colleges and secure millions in free money to pay for it.
