Mark is a veteran in the college admissions industry. He co-founded College Toolkit in 2002 and built it into one of the most comprehensive sites for college-bound students. College Toolkit was one of the first websites to deploy a college-related Facebook Application, allowing students to access 4,000+ college profiles without ever leaving Facebook.
Mark is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania. He grudgingly admits that his parents were right to drag him on an East Coast college tour so he could actually see schools' campuses.
