Personal Story

"I was pretty excited to go to Dartmouth because some awesome people have gone there and I love the fact that Ive now 'joined the club.' Some of the best writers and leader ever: [Dr.] Seuss, [Robert] Frost, and [Daniel] Webster, have gone to Dartmouth and being a part of this exclusive group is just amazing!"

Useful Advice

"Bet on your strengths.

I was never that good at math so I just didn't do math. Do what you're good at and do it really well. Unless if you're some sort of genius its really hard to be really good at everything.

If you're bad at science, don't do science. If you're bad at math don't do math. It's pretty simple honestly. If you go all in on your strengths you'll have the chance to be exceptional at them."
