Greetings! I am Fareine Suarez and I am an experienced higher education admissions officer with many years of experience at both the University of Virginia Undergraduate Admissions and the Darden School of Business.
As an undergraduate admissions officer, I advised high school students about the college application process and preparation for college life. I also evaluated both in and out-of-state applicants, including applicants from China. As a former Assistant Director of Marketing and Admissions, I provided individual counseling to prospective MBA students, evaluated applications, and contributed to decisions made by the admissions committee.
I received my Masters in Higher Education Administration from the University of Virginia, spending many years advising and mentoring undergraduate and graduate students, and have the rare opportunity to see students go through the whole cycle of higher education, from college to graduate school. I understand what it takes to be admitted by highly selective institutions like University of Virginia, and am especially familiar with the experiences students should pursue if they are interested in business school in the future. I enjoy working with students and look forward to helping you find your own voice.
Outside of working with students, I am an active volunteer for groups focused on public education and arts advocacy, and am particularly involved in a nonprofit arts organization in Chicago.
