With over 20 years’ experience in college admissions, Peter Farrell knows what colleges and universities look for in an ideal applicant. Peter was Dean of Admission at Fordham University for seven years and held senior admissions positions at Hofstra University and New York University. Most recently, Peter served as managing director and senior principal at EAB (Educational Advisory Board) where he worked with colleges, universities, community colleges, K-12 districts, independent schools, and graduate programs in the country on their recruitment strategies. He earned his M.A. in Higher Education Administration from Boston College in 1992 and his B.S. in History from St. John’s University in Minnesota in 1989. When he’s not advising schools on their admissions and enrollment methods, Peter and his wife, Johanna, can be found shuttling around their three school-age children, Luke, Noah and Fiona.
