Personal Story

"I wasn't too surprised. I have family who has gone to Dartmouth so I wasn't shocked when I got it. But, it was still nice because it's a great school."


Useful Advice

"I think that to succeed in the admissions game, you have to show that you're competent in a lot of areas, but you can focus on a few.


I'm good at a lot of things, and this was shown in the classes I took and activities I did, but I also showed that I could perform at a really high level for each and every thing I did.


This is what will set you apart from other people. I believe that if you show that you're not just good, but great at a lot of things, you'll be at a much higher level than those who show that they can be great at one or two."
