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.

Special Programs

We’ve got new programs launching in 2020!  To stay up-to-date on program announcements, please subscribe. The first is a purpose project collaboration with Strategy Girl. A purpose project is a project that draws on your interests and talents—the things you love, that bring you joy, that excite you academically—that you feel would fill a need in your school, community, or the world.

Call it a whatever you want—a team, #squad, or wolfpack—but girls need to lift each other up in order to all rise. When we come together, and step up and take the lead, there is no limit to what we can accomplish. Not a girl in high school, or not located in NYC, but interested in pursuing a purpose project? Please email us! For information about one-on-one college counseling, please visit this page.
