Dr. Daniel Southren’s unique approach to admissions was built upon a foundation of his experience within multiple disciplines. A graduate of Washington University in St. Louis, he was inducted to the Phi Beta Kappa honor society in his junior year while he pursued his studies in Biology, Anthropology, and Art History. In addition to his medical education, Dr. Southren also continued to acquire new skill sets as a jazz piano performer and as a non-fiction writer during the duration of his academic career. He then moved to his home state of New York to pursue his MD and MBA at Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons and Columbia Business School. Clients consistently attribute Daniel’s success as a consultant to his ability to curate a storyline that highlights unique features of the application, a skill which he conceptualizes as the marriage of marketing, educational experiences, and professional goals.
