Who is the BWS College Consultant?

Michal Strawn is a full-time senior educational consultant with BWS. Michal has a graduate certificate in college counseling from UCLA and extensive experience in working with central Ohio students through the college admissions and scholarship application process.

Michal enjoys the challenge of college counseling and helping students make one of the most important decisions of their young lives. Each student and situation is different, and Michal customizes her approach and recommendations for each family. She is adept at making students feel comfortable and working through high school stressors. Michal is extremely organized—a skill she passes on to students.

College admissions has changed quite a bit in recent years, and making a mistake can set students back in their college careers. Michal helps families by bringing an outside point of view and the personal attention often not readily available in other settings. BWS limits the number of students in our college counseling program, ensuring that each family has the access and deep relationship-building needed to make the college admissions process as free from stress as possible.
