Ryan Hickey is Managing Editor of Peterson’s & EssayEdge and an expert in many aspects of college, graduate, and professional admissions. A graduate of Yale University, Ryan has worked in various admissions capacities for nearly a decade, including writing test-prep material for the SAT, AP exams, and TOEFL, editing essays and personal statements, and consulting directly with applicants. He enjoys sharing his knowledge to aid others in achieving their educational goals and, when he gets a break, loves hiking and fly fishing with his wife and two border-collie mixes.



Brendan Conway is the web content editor for Peterson’s Interactive and is a  knowledgeable source of information on the world of higher education. He is a graduate of Hamilton College who majored in philosophy and creative writing (he clearly did not consult Peterson’s advice on college strategies nearly enough). Today, he enjoys writing articles for Peterson’s that are helpful, informative, and perhaps a bit…eccentric.
