President, Breakaway Prep
Rick is a graduate of Northwestern University where he majored in economics. He later returned to Northwestern to get his MBA and today likes to use fancy business terms like "brand-awareness," "fixed costs," and "delegation." Before opening the Chatham, NJ office of Collegewise in May, 2006, Rick spent ten years as the national Vice President of Operations for The Princeton Review. During that tenure, he traveled to offices around the country and today has very strong opinions as to the finest hole-in-the-wall dining establishments in over forty cities. Rick has spoken to thousands of students, parents, teachers and administrators about the college admissions and testing process and steadfastly maintains that sausage is the only acceptable topping for pizza.
Where We Are
"I am truly grateful to Breakaway for the second time. They helped my older son, Dan, get into Carnegie Mellon University, his first choice college. They have now helped my younger son, Alex, get into his first choice college, the University of Delaware. He is very happy and I am thrilled that he is going to the college he wanted to go to."Robyne L., Mother of Alex, University of Delaware
