SRC Admissions Consultants

About Us

Our clients have gained admission to Harvard, Stanford, Wharton, Johns Hopkins, University of Chicago, Cornell, Georgetown, University of Michigan, University of Pennsylvania, Northwestern, Dartmouth, UVA, and Duke, to name a few. We are committed to the happiness and future success of our clients, and guide them toward the “best” school for their unique interests, preferences and aspirations — and not simply selecting the best school based on rankings.

Meet Sarah
Sarah R. Caputo has spent the past 11+ years advising and coaching individuals globally through both the undergraduate and MBA admissions process and beyond. She is committed to the success of every client and has a stellar track record with more than 90% of her clients admitted to their top choice program, including the top 10 MBA programs. Unlike larger firms where clients are often in the hands of less experienced consultants, Sarah manages the entire admissions process and ensures that no detail is overlooked. Every client is provided exceptional service — even if that means that an essay is reviewed 20 times. And the results speak for themselves. Prior to founding SRC Admissions Consultants, Sarah served at the Head of College Admissions for Ready4, and as an Admissions Consultant and Chief Operating Officer at Square One Prep. Before her career in admissions consulting, Sarah served as a Global Investment Specialist in the Private Bank at J.P. Morgan where she provided investment and asset allocation advice to high net worth individuals.
