Martin Walsh is the former Assistant Dean of admissions at Stanford University and has worked as the Director of Admission at Santa Clara University, in addition to being a member of the University of Chicago’s Counselor Advisory Board. He has degrees in History, Education and Law. Mr Walsh has 12 years of experience as a student counselor and has trained international school counselors for more than 10 years.
“Over the years I am not certain how many applications I reviewed, perhaps 5,000, perhaps more? Trust me: the reading cycle is exhausting and a bit of a blur. Happily, many of my questions about the mysteries of the admission process were answered. Since leaving Stanford I have shared my knowledge with students, teachers and counselors at international schools in South Korea, Japan, China and Italy. And, I serve as an instructor each summer with the Counselor Training Center. I enjoy taking some of the mystery out of the college.” – says Martin.
