Harvard Square Consulting was founded by a team of Harvard undergraduates who care deeply about increasing access to higher education.

On campus, she is a Staff Writer for The Harvard Crimson and Her Campus Harvard, a former Undergraduate Records Room Assistant at the Harvard Admissions Office, and an Analyst for the Harvard College Consulting Group, which provides consulting services for Fortune 500 firms, international non-profits, and growth stage companies in the Boston area and beyond. She has also previously worked as an Educational Strategy and Consulting Intern at Teaching Garage, an educational startup that is creating the first set of digital engineering curriculum to elementary schools nationwide.
In high school, Yehong ranked in the top 1% of her class, earned a perfect score on her SAT’s, and was named a U.S. Presidential Scholar Semifinalist, Coca-Cola Scholars Semifinalist, National Merit Scholar, National AP Scholar, Georgia Scholar, Outstanding Georgia Citizen, Georgia Region 3B STAR Student, Distinguished Young Woman of Coweta County, and Scholar Athlete. As the first student in her town to attend Harvard, she is passionate about increasing access to higher education by helping to demystify the elite college admissions process for students of all backgrounds.
Dominic is a senior at Harvard College studying Neurobiology. He is a member of the Harvard College Entrepreneurship Forum and has worked on several ventures in the past that cut across the areas of healthcare, media and education. He was selected as one of 16 Harvard students to participate in the SYNERGY Social Innovation Incubator, hosted by the Harvard Social Innovation Collaborative, and is currently the Co-Director of Innovation Connect, where he is responsible for running a number of initiatives aimed at educating the Harvard student community about social entrepreneurship.
Dominic scored in the top 0.1% of Uganda's Adanced Level Exams and graduated top of his class at the most elite boy's boarding school in Uganda. As the only student in his school's history to ever matriculate at Harvard College, he understands the challenges faced by students who go through the college application process without much formal support. He had to independently perform extensive research about the college application process and this experience left him extremely well versed with what applicants need so as to do well in the college application process.
Samuel is a sophomore at Harvard College concentrating in Economics with a secondary in the History of Art and Architecture. He is actively involved in the Institute of Politics, Harvard Radcliffe Orchestra, and the Harvard College Friends of Scouting. He attended Plano East Senior High School in Plano, Texas, where he completed the International Baccalaureate diploma, founded the school district’s first investment/finance club, and played bassoon and saxophone. He is also an Eagle Scout and spent many weekends and summers in the wilderness with his troop.
Samuel graduated as valedictorian of the largest graduating class in the nation, with over 1,500 students. Such a large class size was both a blessing and a curse—allowing students to experience the rigorous environment of a semi-collegiate atmosphere, yet leaving many without guidance and academic support. Thus, Samuel performed extensive research on his own when college application season came around to become deeply familiarized in everything from the Common App to essay tips to interview advice. He co-founded HSCC with the desire to share this knowledge and de-mystify the applications process.
Larry is a sophomore at Harvard College with a concentration in Computer Science and secondary in Biomedical Engineering. He is a member of the Crimson Tech department, managing the website on which the Crimson newspaper’s articles are published, and is also a Teaching Fellow for the course CS50 at Harvard College, well known for its introductory role in attracting students to computer science. He has conducted research and interned in labs and companies across many fields and topics ranging from DNA and RNA sequencing to data processing and analytics.
Larry attended Harvard-Westlake School in Los Angeles, California, a private school ranked 7th in the nation where he graduated near the top of his class with 11 APs, awards across mathematics and science at the head of the class, and several international academic olympiads under his belt. During his college application process, Larry learned firsthand the difficulties of tackling the many complexities of the college application process as he applied to 18 schools, writing and rewriting essays, and compiling and planning out applications. This arduous process gave him a strong understanding of the fatigue and difficulties associated with the college application process as well as how to tackle them properly and effectively. Having written so many applications, he wishes to ease this process for other students about to enter it and give other students less able the opportunity to experience it with a guiding hand themselves.
