About Ryan:

Meet team member and essay advisor Ryan Perry.  Affectionately known as our millennial renaissance man, Ryan keeps the college counselors at RCM a little younger by offering a twenty-something perspective on all topics related to the college search.

Ryan has worn a lot of hats in a quarter century—A graduate of both the College of William and Mary and the University of Virginia, Ryan also is or has been:  collegiate soccer team captain, basketball player, runner, rabid Kentucky Wildcat fan, an actor, policy nerd,  filmmaker, and reader.   Most of all, he is a storyteller.  As such, he has become a trusted sounding board for many of our students when they tackle their personal statements.

In this episode:
In this particular episode, we touch on a bit of everything but focus most on Ryan’s role as transfer student.  Ryan managed not only to change schools successfully but to establish himself as a leader once at his new college.  Ryan provides insights for those who are considering a move as well as those who have already made the decision to transfer.
