My name is Daniel Pastan, and I am a Former Admission Fellow at Amherst College, from where I also received my B.A. in English, concentrating on literary theory and contemporary literature.
Since moving on from the world of admission, I have mentored over a hundred students from all around the globe through their college application processes. In particular, I enjoy the challenge of helping my students express themselves genuinely and professionally in their college essays. Despite the inherent stress and uncertainty, I believe that applying to college can and should be a tremendously exciting time.
When I’m not working, I am an avid solver of crossword puzzles, an amateur runner, and a devoted fan of Led Zeppelin.
