The Founders

Our innovative consulting approach was created by three Mission San Jose High School siblings who were accepted to Yale, Stanford, Dartmouth, Duke, Caltech, Cornell, UPenn, Johns Hopkins, and every UC.


Amy graduated with highest honors from Dartmouth as a Presidential Scholar. Previously, Amy worked at Google for 10 years, specializing in education and knowledge management in her role as Global Product Lead.

Since 2003, she has helped over 200 students with college applications. 


Daniel graduated magna cum laude from Yale with a B.S. in Cognitive Science and Philosophy.

He was admitted to Yale, Duke, Dartmouth, UPenn, Johns Hopkins, and many other top universities.


James graduated from Stanford with a B.A. in Human Biology. He then achieved his J.D. (Doctor of Law) and worked at two of the world's most influential law firms.

He co-founded Perfect 1600, the Bay Area's leading SAT prep company, more than 13 years ago, and has served over 1,000 students since.
