Ali was unfamiliar with the college admissions process and was a habitual procrastinator. With the help of college admissions expert Mark Montgomery, she got accepted into Dartmouth and couldn’t be happier.
Hi, I’m Ally, I am from London and I am a freshman here at Dartmouth. Obviously, being from London, I didn’t know a lot about the American admissions process, and so I got Mark to help me out with that, and honestly I’m very grateful he did because I don’t know how I would have made it through the process without him. I had a very difficult admissions process. I have friends who got into their first-choice colleges ED and that was it. That was amazing and I’m really happy for them. That did not happen for me. I had almost three rounds of letters and not quite acceptances and trying to figure out what I wanted to do, and at one point I was enrolled in a different college that I didn’t end up at. I’m ecstatic that I’m here now but that was a really tough time for me and I think having someone there who kept me sane, who helped me work out what I wanted to do through the emotional aspects and making sure that things like essays and applications and letters all got done. I know myself and I would have let that fall to the wayside. I’m very grateful for that and I can’t recommend that more.
