Our Services

College Admissions Counseling
High school students and their families need accurate, timely information from a trusted source as they navigate the college search and application process. BMC provides clients expert guidance, and the information and support needed to navigate the process efficiently and effectively. The process of formally applying to college should start the summer after 11th grade, but planning for it starts much earlier.

Essay Editing & Management
Having read thousands of personal statements over the course of our careers as counselors, writing tutors and coaches, and admissions officers, the easiest explanation is that we just “know” when we read an effective essay! And a formula? Please ignore anyone who tries to convince you that one exists. We offer essay management and editing services to help students and other IECs navigate the essay process efficiently and effectively.

Graduate School Admissions Counseling
Our primary focus areas are law, economics, finance, public policy, education, nursing, psychology, international relations, fine arts (including writing and poetry), and music but we love branching out and lending our expertise to related fields. Our graduate school admissions services are customized to fit each client and where they are in the process.

Early Career Counseling & In-College Advising
Mapping out a "career strategy" early on can be especially helpful as students seek to gain meaningful and best-fit internships and other pre-professional opportunities. As a natural extension of college counseling, Dr. Maschal provides early career advising and guides college students on how to take advantage of the advising services at their new institutions.

Complete Your Common Application Essay in One Week! 

Do you have zero plans for spring break, or maybe just a slower-than-usual start to the semester? Want to get the most important piece of writing in your college application completed efficiently and early? 

If you answered yes to both questions, look no further: this is the program for you. In one week of focused 1:1 work with an essay expert, you will be able to check a very important college application item off your list: the Common Application essay.  

More specifically, in this program you will: 

  • Attend a live session to learn what makes a successful Common Application essay.
  • Complete our specialized brainstorming process, working with an essay expert 1:1 to decide on the most unique approach to your essay. 
  • Draft your essay and receive detailed, targeted feedback to take it from a rough draft to a polished final essay—in four days!

You’ll also get access to sample personal statements by real-life students we’ve worked with (and who have gained admission to selective colleges and universities!).

When is this program offered?

  • This course is offered on-demand! Let us know your preferred week, and we will reach out to you with our availability. If we are not available for your preferred week, we will work with you to find another time that fits both of our schedules. 

Who should sign up for this program?

  • Juniors who are ready to write their Common App essay (aka the personal statement) and who have a significant chunk of time each day to dedicate to it over the course of one week.
