Personal Story

"Getting into Brown was amazing! I was choosing between there and William and Mary, but I just fell in love with Providence when I went up the first time. It is such a beautiful city, and while I love William and Mary I just couldn't say not no to Providence. It just called out to me.

While getting into Brown was great, finally clicking that submit button was orgasmic! My entire body shuddered as a huge weight had been lifted off my shoulders and I settled into the disease commonly referred to as 'senioritis.'

It felt so good to finally be finished with high school and finally move onto something better."

Useful Advice

"My tutor saved my life.

If there's anything I would recommend to anyone about how to get into the Ivy League, it would be to get a tutor right away!

After taking the SAT the first time, I was pretty much hopeless. I got a 1380 in total with a 700 on the math section and a 680 on the reading section. My tutor, Danny saved my life, especially when it came to the math section. He managed to bump me up to a 790 on the math and a 750 on the reading. To this day I have no idea how he did it because I am not that good at math, and I'm certainly worse at reading. But, he somehow changed that.

If it weren't for Danny I definitely wouldn't be here today and if there's anything I could ever give as advice, it would be to get an awesome tutor to really help you out in doing better because it can do wonders for your performance."
