About Becky LeichtlingCollege Admissions Consultant

My Background

I got my start in admissions as an undergrad at Carleton, first as a tour guide and admissions volunteer, then as a senior interviewer of prospective students. As assistant director of admissions at Tufts, I oversaw campus tours and open houses as the outreach coordinator, thus continuing to focus on the prospective student experience and how to make the most of campus visits. In addition to recruiting and reviewing applicants from a geographically diverse territory that included parts of New England, the Midwest, and the Southwest, I served as a regional interview coordinator, varsity athletic liaison, and club sports coach.

Why I Joined Bright Horizons College Coach

Despite the mass media hype and overwhelming misinformation surrounding the college admissions process, I believe it should be a personal, reflective, and empowering time for students. I joined College Coach so I could help students figure out what sort of learning opportunities best fit their individual goals (whether or not those goals are clearly in focus!), and support them through developing an application that is representative of their best selves. I love making families feel like the student is driving the process, not the other way around, and that all decisions are informed and proactive.

Some of my Favorite Pastimes

Playing Ultimate Frisbee and roller derby, hiking and camping (loving the state parks right now), and becoming addicted to various HBO series
