"Dartmouth Data Scientist, Top 1% ACT Scorer, and College Consultant"
Hello parents and students,
My name is Om, a senior at Dartmouth College majoring in Mathematical Data Science. In terms of any goal, there are 3 categories: comfort, challenge, and unrealistic. With students, I want to push them gently into their challenge zone since all our goals lie outside our comfort zone. Sometimes people are told as children phrases like â€œyou are not a good fit for mathâ€ or â€œyou werenâ€™t born like thatâ€ or â€œyou either have it or you donâ€™t.â€ Forget that!

I enjoy the creative side of life. I am an architect, teacher, musician, builder, guitar and furniture maker.
I believe all can learn, and do well in life, if allowed to explore and try different things that may excite the inner soul. I have had students that thought they knew exactly what they wanted to do in life, and upon graduating from high school, completely changed course. These are all valid ways to get to where we need, and more importantly, want to go. I have also had a few stu... ... More
