Profile of Arun Alagappan

January 28, 1994

The Wall Street Journal

"Mr. Alagappan has developed a fanatical following in the high-stakes, high-pressure world of college preparation."

"'Somewhere between spectacular and indescribable,' says Frank Biondi, president and chief executive of Viacom Inc., whose daughter Anne studied with Mr. Alagappan."

"'The most wonderful person in the world,' says Judith Hirsch, a tax accountant, whose daughter Rebekah was another Alagappan client."

"But even more important than his knowledge, some students say, is his calming influence."
