Brittany Dávila

Admissions Expert

Brittany is an expert in highly selective college admissions. She has reviewed more than 15,000 applications and counseled hundreds of students. Brittany has held roles in the admissions and/or financial aid offices at the following colleges: Reader at UC Berkeley, NYU, Barnard College, Fordham and University of La Verne.


Beyond the work I’ve done in college admissions, I’ve worked as a Director of College Counseling at two independent schools in New York City and the Bay Area, and now work full time as an independent college counselor. I love assisting students through this process and watching them grow into more confident and self-aware young people.

Counseling Style:

I believe in letting the student be in the driver’s seat in this process, while I, along with the other adults in their lives, support them as best we can. I set clear expectations while offering expertise, support and encouragement every step of the way. At the end of the college application process, my students come away feeling proud of themselves and ready and excited for the next chapter of their lives.


I grew up in California and come from a large family (I have five siblings!). Outside of work, I love hanging out with my family, my dog, Ollie, and I love watching and rooting for the US Women’s National Soccer team.

“Working with Brittany was one of the best experiences I had during high school. I came into the college process as a first-generation student not knowing anything about how this process works and Brittany was there not only to help me but help my family as well. I now attend one of the best institutions in the country and have enjoyed every single second of it.”
