S. Montgomery Admissions Consulting

Authentically helping students own their story and achieve their educational dreams since 2012.

Be inspired. Be empowered. Be all that you can.

I believe in your ability to achieve your dreams whether you are in 9th grade or heading off to law school. I promise to help you grow to your full potential, gain independence, and take ownership of your academic dreams. I instill hope, power, and confidence in each one of my students.

I help students from all socioeconomic backgrounds and races, but I am especially proud of the fact that over 60% of my students are breaking down barriers to become the first college or law school graduate in their family.

I don't make promises about schools, I make promises about students.

Mission Statement

My mission is to provide quality, accessible, and authentic college and law school guidance to students of all socioeconomic backgrounds and races. I aim to provide guidance that not only helps students navigate the process, reduce stress, and push them to their full academic potential, but guidance that helps students on their path to self-actualization by leading them deeper on their introspective and emotional journey so they can become more empathetic and purposeful professionals. 

The Importance of Racial Equality

The college admissions process can be daunting for both students and their family members. My goal is not only to help shed light on a potentially confusing process but also to make college and law school more accessible to students of all socioeconomic backgrounds and races by providing admissions guidance that helps students navigate the process with ease. Statistically, low-income and minority students “undermatch” in the college application process. A 2012 study in the National Bureau of Economic Research found that a majority of high achieving low-income students do not apply to selective colleges, despite being academically qualified. As the first in my family to matriculate and graduate from an Ivy League institution, and as the first lawyer in my family, I care deeply about increasing access to higher education for all students. I help students through the college and law school admissions process regardless of what types of schools they want to go to. I help students with Ivy League schools, Historically Black Colleges and Universities, public universities and colleges, and everything in between. Read my background to find out more about my mission.
