  3. Hello,

    I’m trying to reach the main business development contact for the site.

    offer, that isn’t saturated in the market so there is a good chance your audience has never seen it before.

    as possible to discuss a partnership. If you’re not the appropriate
    contact, please forward this message to the proper contact.
    Thanks in advance,

  5. To Whom it May Concern,

    I’m reaching out on behalf of, a network of former admissions officers from colleges like Stanford, Harvard, Brown, Northwestern, and UCLA that offers affordable online college counseling.

    Our team is led by Dr. Jon Reider, former Associate Director of Admissions at Stanford University from 1985-2000. Dr. Reider has authored several illuminating articles on the college admissions process, including “The Five Traits That Matter Most to Admissions Officers” and “How to Address the ‘Why This College?’ Prompt”.

    We would be very interested in having one of our articles published on your blog as a resource for your site visitors. Please email me if your blog would be interested in featuring and/or archiving any of Dr. Reider’s articles.
