Personal Story

"I was so excited when I got in! I don't even know how to put it into words, but I was just so blown away by the fact that I was one of the lucky few people who got into Dartmouth. I managed to be one of the lucky few who applied to this amazing few and would actually get to go. That was insane to me."


Useful Advice

"For me personally, tutoring was the name of the game. I didn't have a great SAT score the firs time I took it; I got a 1250. But, by the third time I was able to get a 1400 and superscore that to a 1420.


If people can, I'd tell them to get tutoring for the SAT, Ap Tests, everything because it makes the process of learning the material so much easier.


You pretty much have a one on one teacher who can guide you through the entire process of learning the material from start to finish and can help you along whenever you're struggling with a particular topic.


I personally found it extremely helpful and think that everyone should do t if they have the option to."
