Hi I’m Ali, I am from London, and I am a
freshman here at Dartmouth. I, obviously from being from London, I didn’t know a
lot about the Americans’ admissions process and so I got Mark to help me out
with that and honestly I’m very grateful I 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 didn’t get in–you know I have friends who got in to 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 through what i wanted to do,
through the sort of emotional aspects, and making sure that things like essays
and applications and letters all got done. You know, I 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, so yeah.
