College Admissions in the 21st Century

Hanna Stotland is an independent career and educational counselor. She is based in Chicago, and works with client families nationwide.  She counsel students on college admissions, provides standardized test tutoring and preparation, consults on law school admissions, and provides career counseling to law students and law school graduates.  

Hanna will speak to the alumni of HLS on the college admissions process, which will cover topics including:

  • Applications and essays
  • Factors to consider in finding the right fit
  • The criteria college admissions offices are considering
  • Strategies for funding

As a student at Harvard University, she joined the Harvard College Office of Admissions as a student guide and began to offer volunteer advice on admissions sites. Before long, families began to seek her professional counsel, and she opened her consulting business.

Following her graduation from Harvard College, where she was elected to Phi Beta Kappa, Hanna received her JD from Harvard Law School. She completed two federal judicial clerkships and spent several years in law firm practice. Hanna has also worked as an admissions advisor and LSAT instructor for Kaplan, Inc. and Brody Admissions, and served as Associate Director of Career Services at Northwestern Law School, with a focus on clerkship and career advising.
