Hey there, I'm Dyllen! 👋

Founder • College Admissions Coach • Stanford University ‘24

I founded Next Gen Admit to empower students to discover and articulate their personal values, experiences, and potential in stand-out college applications.

We’ve worked with 2000+ students around the world and edited 5000+ college essays. Our students have achieved their dreams of Stanford, Harvard, Columbia, UPenn, and more!​

I was in your shoes not too long ago.

I started with big dreams of getting into top colleges, but no idea HOW.
So, I dove into research and lots of trial and error until I developed my own college admissions strategy. Finally, I found the sweet spot between being authentic and standing out.

As Seen On...

Dyllen helped me achieve my goal of attending Stanford, and I know she can do the same for you!

One of the most important decisions I made during my college application process was getting Dyllen to help me brainstorm and edit my essays. Her feedback helped me understand where my writing was strong and where I needed to go back to the drawing board so that I could craft the strongest application possible. I cannot thank her enough and recommend her to any and everyone!

Dyllen has the eye of a storyteller.

Dyllen helped clarify different moving parts of my essay to become one cohesive narrative. By asking a number of probing questions, identifying confusing syntax, and pointing out opportunities for me to tie my complicated story together, her feedback made sure I presented myself in the best way possible.

Compared to other services, Dyllen's focuses on capturing who YOU are as an individual. Because of Dyllen, I was able to show who I was and who I became in my story, and this is a skill that not many people can do well. But Dyllen can! Her teachings and feedback allowed me to create an application that I was proud of!

I am happy to share that because of Dyllen’s help, I will be attending my dream school: Boston University!!!

When I met with Dyllen on Zoom for the first time, I was all over the place! Dyllen immediately helped ease my nerves and provided great advice while answering all of my countless, and very specific questions. I have many friends who paid for SAT tutoring and other personal college counseling, and based on what I’ve heard from them, Dyllen’s services are far more valuable and she is so much more skilled at what she does. I highly recommend that all college applicants take advantage of the tools and services she has to offer.

Dyllen's program helped me so much throughout my college application process. She really allowed me to add structure to the process, identify what I needed to work on, organize my ideas, and evaluate what I truly wanted to convey in my essays. The videos and curriculum integrated into her course really helped me tell my story and be proud of my writing. It was definitely worth it! I would recommend it!

With Dyllen's program, I learned what to do before the writing process, how to level up the essays, and how to save crucial time by recycling essays in the best way possible! There are plenty of resources on how to write essays but this program really gave me a new perspective on portraying me as a human and how to stand out as an international student. I wouldn't have been able to make it without your help Dyllen!

Dyllen made it easy.

The college application process was super stressful and scary, but Dyllen made it easy to step back and get to the root of my problems. If you're unsure about what stories to write about, she made it easy to pinpoint the most interesting things about you, make them relevant to your character, and write wonderful essays. Dyllen broke down the structure and made it a more collaborative and individualized experience, making it easier to figure out what to write about.

Dyllen's advice enabled me to gain admission to my dream schools!

I was hesitant to do essay editing services at first since I didn’t know if it would be helpful, but Dyllen’s editing really helped me enhance my essays by strengthening the themes and adding clarity to details. Also, the short paragraph of overall feedback is really helpful as it gives me an insight into how my essays are perceived by readers besides the people I know. Thank you, Dyllen! And I strongly recommend her editing service to anyone who requires suggestions for their college essays.

Meeting with Dyllen over Zoom allowed me to have a lot of clarity and direction going into college essay writing season.

We brainstormed my theme and ways to tell my story, which helped me get a good head start on the hardest part of essay writing. I appreciated all of her great ideas and encouragement so much!"

Honestly, I absolutely LOVED IT!!! This program was extremely helpful in helping me organize my college list and most definitely helped me figure out which values and qualities I wanted to highlight in my essays. It was also really colorful and aesthetically pleasing.
