About Us

About Us

Our Former Admissions Officers

As individuals, we have evaluated and made decisions on thousands of applications. As a committee, we have evaluated tens of thousands. We hail from world-renowned universities, including Yale, Tufts, Duke, Northeastern, Williams, Northwestern and many more. We verify all former admissions officers’ work experience and are dedicated to giving helpful admissions assistance.

Our committee members have
  • An Average of 8 Years of Admissions Experience
  • Served as Directors, Assistant Directors and/or Associate Directors of Admissions
  • Recruited International Students and Evaluated their Applications

AdmissionsCheckup is 100% confidential. We won’t tell anyone that you used our service, but we hope you will. The student’s application will get three admissions reviews. In order to give the student the best feedback possible, each admissions officer works independently and evaluates the application based on his/her own admissions training and background. As admission officers, our evaluations are direct, straightforward and honest. We are not giving the student feedback to make him or her feel good, though it may. While we cannot guarantee admission, we can alert the student to aspects of the application that may lower admission chances.

Our Founder

Stephanie Klein Wassink graduated from Brown University in 1988. After Brown, Stephanie worked for Northwestern University as a member of the admissions committee. There she read and evaluated 2,000 applications annually, performed as many as 25 interviews per week, and made admit, deny, deferral and wait-list recommendations to the Director of Admissions.

Stephanie left Northwestern to earn her MBA at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School. Following graduation, she worked in sales and trading on Wall Street, yet continued informally helping students with the college and graduate school application process. In 2004, Stephanie started Winning Applications, LLC, and in 2012 added AdmissionsCheckup.com.

Stephanie works with students from all over the world, writes for several newspapers and blogs, has been interviewed about the process on News 12 and Fox News, and speaks about college admissions throughout the country.
