I breakdown how to write college essays, organization & time management tutorials, overall application tips, and my own accepted applications and art portfolios.

Video Program

Instead of sifting through which videos you think
you should watch, I have compiled a program that lists which videos to watch, in what order.

Jesus - Cornell University Texas, USA

Many times this year I have found myself struggling and lost with many aspects of my applications, but watching your videos has helped me craft what I believe to be a great application. I am low income and first-gen. I never had help from my parents, my school counselor, or even friends, but I always found myself learning more and more from you. You deserve recognition and gratitude. So thank you so so much for everything Dyllen. Thank you for helping those who can’t really receive help from others. You have an amazing heart.

Ramey Echt College Counselor at Matchlighters

I'm so impressed with all the content you have generated! I regularly share your videos with my students (I volunteer through Matchlighters- a scholarship program for low income students run by Ethan Sawyer). Your content is amazing! It's fun, informative, personal, honest, and easy to understand. I think it's especially great that it comes from a current student.

Students From Around The World

Your videos break down the complex college admission process into something more understandable. I particularly appreciate your time management videos which have allowed me to plan out my applications without falling into the dangerous pit of procrastination.
They gave me confidence and motivation to effectively plan out my time toward building a good application.
More than the help, it’s gotten me pumped and excited for the whole application process instead of stressing me out.

Stanford Admits Class of '24

You literally helped me get into Stanford with your YouTube videos, so if you ever have doubts if you're truly helping people, you definitely are. Watching your videos helped me tremendously on my essays and the admissions process, so much so that I can proudly say that I’m part of the Stanford c/o 2024! Your videos have been an immense help in the application process and ultimately got me into Stanford REA! It's crazy to think that I'm going to Stanford now, but I watched a bunch of your YouTube videos when I was applying and found them SO helpful.
