Dozens of prospective college and graduate students
Aviva Hirschfeld Legatt draws on her experience in admissions at The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania for her admissions consulting work.

Aviva advises students who are seeking admission to selective colleges and graduate schools – her students range from prospective bachelor degree students to prospective masters degree students who seek degrees such as the MBA, MPA, MA, and MS.
