meet dr. neimeyer, founder/ceo

In my journey as the youngest of seven first-generation, college-bound individuals, I have dedicated my career to upholding my parents' unwavering belief in the transformative power of higher education. My mission is to assist families in realizing this goal for their children, ensuring that the path to higher education is not only accessible but also empowering.

Throughout my early years in this profession, a defining moment occurred during one admissions presentation. Following the session, a prospective student's father approached me with gratitude, expressing how my thorough presentation had alleviated their stress significantly. It was in that moment that I realized my chosen career path was making a tangible impact.

My approach revolves around empowering families, especially students, to understand their interests, explore potential careers and college majors, and strategically navigate the admissions process. By demystifying these aspects, I aim to equip students with the knowledge and confidence needed to articulate their unique qualities to admissions committees.

I understand the importance of guiding families through the intricacies of college and career choices, fostering an environment where stress is replaced with informed decision-making. My commitment lies in not only helping students discover their passions but also in providing them with the tools to effectively communicate their aspirations to admissions committees, thereby enhancing their probability of gaining admission to their desired institutions.

By merging personal experience with professional expertise, I continue to fulfill my parents' legacy, ensuring that the transformative power of higher education remains within reach for every family I have the privilege to assist.

"GCSA's approach was personalized and empowering. Our son learned more about himself and was able to confidently apply to all of his colleges early so he could enjoy his senior year".



I would recommend GCSA's services to anyone who is navigating this overwhelming process.

My son really enjoyed working with GCSA through the entire college process. He had no idea where he wanted to go and wasn’t able to go on any tours Junior year because of COVID. GCSA helped him form a list of schools, helped him to do research on his list and then worked closely with him throughout the application process. My son wanted to own the process and only work with his GCSA consultant (no input from Mom or Dad). Most importantly, our consultant helped him make his final choice based on a whole list of criteria. I would recommend GCSA’s services to anyone who is navigating the overwhelming process.

I used GCSA throughout my junior and senior years. My consultant was beyond helpful with the whole process. From the start, they helped me figure out what my major was and decide which colleges to apply to based on the best fit for me. They helped with my essays and getting me to the core of whatever point I wanted to make or quality I wanted to showcase. They dedicated so much time to helping me and truly went above and beyond. Without GCSA, I don’t know if I would have been successful getting into Cornell University and believe it to be the right fit for me. I 100% recommend GCSA! Sofia, Maryland



Working with GCSA helped expand my college search.

My GCSA consultant was crucial to broadening my college search. He played a pivotal role in shaping each of my essays, which later became integral and strategic components of my successful college applications. From considering the decision to submit test scores to reviewing choices, my consultant guided me with the best advice every step of the way. Having the ability to shoot him a quick text or email for prompt and reliable responses made the entire process smoother. As a student, I wholeheartedly recommend GCSA for invaluable assistance in navigating your college decisions.



There was a clear process and plan.

I really appreciated the personalized attention. My GCSA consultant took the time to listen to what I wanted and found schools that matched my interests and criteria. The process of finding the right school and then applying to them didn't feel overwhelming. There was a clear process and plan.

Also, having all of my applications in by the end of October and knowing I got into my first choice school before the holidays was such a relief. I've been able to enjoy my senior year. Thank you for working with me.
