Amanda Miller

Partner at The Collegiate Path

As a long-standing member of Yale University’s Alumni Schools Committee in India, Amanda interviewed and evaluated dozens of university applicants. Through these interviews and post-interview guidance, she realized that too many students do not fully understand what differentiates the American liberal arts style of education, and that overseas applicants often have poor or no advice on how best to present their candidacy. She became inspired to focus on formally helping students navigate the complex U.S. college application process. She finds great joy in working with young people and advising students during the college application and decision process.

The EB-5 visa is based on an investment but this marketing presentation and event do not constitute an offer to sell securities.  If you are interested in seeing project investment documents, we ask you to contact LCR directly so we can confirm you are an accredited investor or the equivalent in your market. We can also then focus the conversation on your individual or family needs. And, while we will be discussing areas of immigration law, none of the conversation or Q&A can be considered legal advice.  You will need to reach out to an immigration attorney and enter a client-attorney relationship to receive legal advice.
