College Application Resources

Dyllen Nellis

Hello, I'm Dyllen Nellis!
I am a student at Stanford University interested in the intersection between design, technology, and storytelling.

When I applied to college, I sought out numerous articles, books, and videos to gain valuable insight into the college application process. What I learned was indispensable. I was accepted into 8/8 schools I applied to including Stanford, USC, UCLA, NYU, and more. Two years later, I continue to thoroughly research college essay strategies, work with students, and create educational content on YouTube to increase accessibility around college applications.

Students From Around The World Have Said:

“It’s like a college admissions bible”

“More than the help, it’s gotten me pumped and excited for the whole application process instead of stressing me out.”

“Your videos break down the complex college admission process into something more understandable. I particularly appreciate your time management videos which have allowed me to plan out my applications without falling into the dangerous pit of procrastination.”

“Your videos gave me confidence and motivation to effectively plan out my time toward building a good application.”

“Dyllen is so authentic and down to earth.”

Words From Stanford Admits!

“You literally helped me get into Stanford with your YouTube videos, so if you ever have doubts if you’re truly helping people, you definitely are.”

“Watching your videos helped me tremendously on my essays and the admissions process, so much so that I can proudly say that I’m part of the Stanford c/o 2024!”

“Your videos have been an immense help in the application process and ultimately got me into Stanford REA!”

“It’s crazy to think that I’m going to Stanford now, but I watched a bunch of your YouTube videos when I was applying and found them SO helpful.”
