SocratesPost was founded by Maxine Seya, a former investigative journalist, college consultant, and admissions interviewer. She studied at Peking University (Beijing, China) and Université Paul-Valéry (Montpellier, France) and investigated for CNN and Huffington Post before graduating from Northwestern University.

Maxine hated the secrecy and tight-lipped nature of college admissions. Shouldn’t college applicants and their families — the real customers of education — deserve transparency on how candidates are selected? 

She founded SocratesPost to share the human stories behind the admission gates, give the professionals a voice, and offer college hopefuls clarity on their journey.

SocratesPost is an Amber Grant-winning news startup, featured at the U.S. Department of State’s 3rd Annual Career Connections Seminar.
