Neha Ramsurrun (Dartmouth College)
From the very first day that I talked to Ms. Anjanita, I felt that she would be able to help me achieve my dream of studying in the U.S. – and, indeed, she did! Her professionalism and her knowledge of the ins and outs of the college application process inspired trust in me from the very beginning, but I was especially touched by her incredible dedication to her work, and her kindness, which felt just as crucial to help me bring out the best of myself in my application.
As I set out on the long and daunting journey that is the college application process, Ms. Anjanita gradually broke it down and made everything seem simpler. With her guidance, I began to understand what was required of me as an applicant. As she gave me thoughtful critique about my essays, I was able to hone my writing skills and engage in introspection, grow, and better present myself through my application.
I had not realized how much I would need help with my application until the moment that I actually started it, which is why I feel so lucky for discovering Ms. Anjanita’s counseling services. Honestly, I would not have made it through successfully without her. Be it through the hours that she spent helping me polish my Common App, brainstorm for my personal essay, submit my applications, or through her encouraging words during stressful times, Ms. Anjanita was there for me at every step of the way, her dedication and her faith in me never wavering.
And when I was later accepted into four excellent schools, including Georgetown University and Dartmouth College, on great financial aid, I will never forget how Ms. Anjanita’s joy seemed to rival my own. I do not believe that there are many people out there who would devote that much time and care so much for their students’ success. She is truly a gem of a person, and words might never be enough to fully express my gratitude towards her. She often told me to “go the extra mile” in order to achieve my goals, and this is a lesson that I will keep in mind as I attend Dartmouth College during the next four years, and throughout my life.
I’m sure Ms. Anjanita will keep on inspiring her future students to do their best and helping them succeed, just as she did with me. She’s most definitely an amazing admission counselor!
