This is a headshot of Brian Taylor, Ivy Coach's managing partner.

If you’re a regular reader of the most widely read admissions blog, its author, Brian Taylor, has served as a tell-it-like-it-is thought leader in college admissions for the last two decades. A graduate of Dartmouth College, he has debunked commonly held misconceptions about the admissions process and used the platform to speak truth to power, issuing a clarion call for a better process.

Brian has been quoted in The Harvard Crimson on the waitlistThe Yale Daily News on the role of private college counselors, The New York Times on the male advantage at many top schools, and Le Monde on how great grades aren’t enough, among many others. He’s appeared on TV programs from Nightline to Morning in America, addressing topics ranging from the Varsity Blues scandal to college enrollment.

Each year, Brian works with America’s veterans on a pro bono basis to help them earn admission to the colleges of their dreams.
