Cornell University graduate with 7+ years of experience in higher education and developing students

Annabel Campo

I am a Cornell University graduate with 7+ years of experience in higher education and developing students. I've held academic support positions with top U.S. universities, including Cornell, Stanford, Princeton, and Northwestern. Prior to joining Ivy Compass, I served as a senior writing consultant and application specialist at Cornell's Writing Center. I've coached hundreds of students and reviewed thousands of essays throughout my professional career. I am highly skilled and trained in college essay writing, student mentorship, and high school/college portfolio development.
Students I've worked with have earned admission to the most selective universities in the United States, including:
• Columbia University
• Duke University
• University of Chicago
• University of Michigan
• Carnegie Mellon University
• Johns Hopkins University
• New York University
• University of Southern California
• University of California, Berkeley
• ... and many more!

100% of the students I've coached have earned admission to at least one of their top-choice schools.
