This week we’d like to welcome our very first guest blogger, Patricia Krahnke. Patricia has over 15 years of inside college admissions experience at Rutgers University as the Assistant Director of Admissions and at Vermont State College as Dean of Admissions. Although she has worked with thousands of families from all disciplines and backgrounds, her heart is in the arts. She has a BA in creative writing and an MFA in playwriting. Her plays have been read in New York City and London, and her play Humid was a finalist in the Hinton Battle New Play Competition. She knows what it takes to succeed in the performing arts and in college admissions. And she wants to share that knowledge with you.
