All about Working with College Admissions and Finance Counselors

Getting In A College Coach Conversation
Admissions Consultant Sally Ganga

Written by Sally Gangaon May 8th, 2024

I started my career as an assistant director of admission at Reed College, my alma mater, where I ran the transfer program. From there, I went to Whittier College as an associate director, and then moved on to The University of Chicago, again as associate director, where I was in charge of the application reading process and the awarding of our top merit scholarships. The diversity of my experience was very helpful when I transferred to the high school side, where I assisted students applying to colleges at all levels of selectivity.
