About Charles

Founder and CEO of V2 Admissions and have been doing college admissions consulting for ~6 years now. Have helped over 100+ students get into a T20 ranked undergraduate program, and ~95% of my students get into 1 of their top 3 choice universities. Some fun facts: I've worked with students from 25+ states and 5+ countries. I started V2 when I was 17. I've had 4 students sweep all 8 Ivies. I've also designed a 8+ hour masterclass with 100+ videos, of which you may find in Leland+ ... go check it out! Outside of V2, I work in enterprise software private equity as an investor. Skipped investment banking and joined a mega-fund out of a semi-target undergraduate program. Previously, I sold a business in the marketing & advertising space for 7 figures.

Why do I coach?

I think the college admissions process is a fun process to game and play. I take a unique approach in differentiating my students with their applications, which makes the overall process engaging and exciting every time I work with a new student. I love building relationships with my students and ultimately optimizing them for long-term success, not just getting into their "dream" school. It's more than just getting into college -- I enjoy mentoring students towards a fulfilling academic and professional path.
