What's up guys, it's Ben Peters. After graduating from Cornell University School of Hotel Administration in 2015, I have built Millennial Commute into a chart-topping podcast and premium consulting business. I'm here to help you, so I'm counting on you to reach out so we can get started. I'm busy, but I always promise I'll get back within 24 hours, and I haven't broken that promise yet.

I have worked with students in the top private and public high schools in 12 countries including the US and Canada, and college students at top schools including Cornell, Columbia, Penn, Wisconsin Madison, and more. I have worked for business professionals at top companies like Boeing, Google, General Mills, Microsoft, Wells Fargo, 3M, and more.

My clients have won international competitions in subjects from Martial Arts to Debate, gotten promoted in Fortune 100 companies, and range from middle schoolers to corporate executives. When it comes to career success, age is just a number, and excuses don't hold up in my court, so scroll down and get started TODAY!


College Admissions

You know about the ACT/SAT. You know your GPA. But the other parts of the application can be... confusing. Personal statements, supplements, letters of recommendation, and choosing a well-rounded list of schools can be more painful than pulling teeth--and we're all afraid of rejection.

You also don't know how to spend your summers, what to write about in an essay, or why Penn might admit you over another student.

Don't let the complexity of admissions prevent you from putting yourself in a position to get admitted. Admitted by the best schools you are capable of attending. Schools like Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Cornell, and Stanford. Yes, their admission rates are incredibly low--below 5%, in some cases--but you might actually be more qualified than you realize. Especially if you put the time and effort into the intangibles of your application under the guidance of a seasoned expert.

You've got dozens of questions, and everyone does--my inbox is full, every day, with questions about the admissions process--so take action now and drop me a message.

Schedule a brief chat with me and let's discuss how we can craft your best possible application, starting with your Personal Statement.

According to college admissions experts, the Personal Statement is the biggest factor that differentiates a good application from a great application. I have worked with dozens of top students around the globe reviewing personal statements, supplements, and other parts of the application beyond grades and test scores. I can take the weight off your shoulders and help you with:

  • alumni interview and interview prep ( I volunteer as an alumni interviewer for Cornell)
  • Personal statement and supplement planning and drafting
  • creating a well-rounded list of schools
  • planning and preparing to get quality letters of recommendation
  • extracurricular planning, and especially applications for top summer programs
  • Common App navigation

Whether you are just beginning to think about colleges or about to click "submit" on the common app page, do yourself a huge favor and reach out to me NOW to make sure your application won't fall through the cracks. The mountain of applications flooding the doors of top schools grows bigger every year, so don't lose your chance to stand out from the field!



Performance Coaching

You are a top performer. You always have been--which is why you are always looking to take your game to the next level. If certain aspects of your life aren't up to your complete satisfaction, let me know, and let's find a way to bring them up to a level that brings you fulfillment.

As a teaching assistant and resident advisor to hundreds of top Ivy League students at Cornell, and now as a consultant for some of the world's top high school students and professionals, I understand through experience that what gets measured gets managed. I also understand that genius and incredibly intelligent individuals do not always appreciate the full scope of their talents, which is where I come in.

I designed a numbers-based coaching program that puts you first by measuring and organizing all of the aspects of your life and career in which you'd like to see improvement and growth. As we work together, we will put together a plan, document our efforts for improvement, and benchmark your successes to make sure our time (and your money) is incredibly well spent.

You owe it to yourself to start making progress today in every aspect of your life, and I'd be thrilled to coach and help you.

Procrastination sucks--we've all been there. So reach out now and let's start taking your game to the next level.


I specializes in career development and growth, staying current with new technologies, world events, and most importantly data-driven industry trends. My biggest passion is helping you make the most of your education and career!

My #1 goal is to help you build a Road Map that takes you from where you are today to the best future, defined in your terms. I'm looking for passionate, driven top performers who want to achieve at a higher level.
