Celebrating Milestones!

We are THRILLED to celebrate 3 students who recently learned they are Questbridge Scholars. Cheers for Analisa (matched with Hamilton College), Shania (matched with Grinnell College) and Dayanara (matched with Notre Dame) who all received guaranteed full rides to those schools. This is 3x the number of students we have ever had match (one each year before this)!
