Marian Nicoletti

Independent Educational Consultant


What do I enjoy most about being a college consultant?

I enjoy assisting students through the college admissions process by taking a student-centered approach through their journey.  Through our work together, students are guided through a step-by-step plan giving them the confidence they need to make their final college selection.  

Having been through the admissions process recently with her own two children, Marianunderstands what is necessary in this important process from both sides of the desk.    Through her own work in college admissions consulting, Marian uses her strong interpersonal skills getting to know her students, along with building a trusting relationship with her clients.  She can be described as an approachable, knowledgeable, and trustworthy individual who knows when to take the lighthearted approach.

Marian has over 38 years of experience working in college admissions along with many years in independent consulting.  She lives in upstate New York with her husband, and enjoys cooking, pickleball, painting and enjoying time with friends and family.
