MEET YOUR INSTRUCTOR:
Hi, I’m David Montesano
Founder of College Match, a leading global educational consultancy that serves clients online and from offices in the US and London. I am also the author and instructor of College Match's Unifluence six-part Ultimate College Admission Prep Course.
My work and publications give students and their families clear direction on how to prove their individual value and worth to colleges such as ways to identity their unique value through differentiation, and the importance of using "The 3-Me" philosophy.
Profiled as a “new breed” of college admissions consultant by The Washington Post, I wrote two game-changing college guidebooks, “Brand U: 4 Steps to the College of Your Dreams” and “Stand Out to Get In!” I regularly contribute my perspective on admission to US News & World Report’s “Best Colleges”, NY Times, CBS Moneywatch, Forbes, Newsweek, and The Dailey Beast and have delivered college admission strategy seminars for audiences including Stanford University, USC, Microsoft, Morgan Stanley and Western Academy of Beijing's parent group. My TV, radio, and webcast media appearances include CBS, Fox, and radio shows and webcasts including Maggie Linton’s SiriusXM show in Washington D.C. and Boston’s College Week Live.
Applying the techniques, tips and tools I have learned from 20 years of helping students gain admission to their first choice colleges, I created the Montesano Method, an award-winning college admission methodology that helps students identify their unique value that they may offer colleges through the admission process. I have helped thousands of students around the globe reduce their anxiety and gain control over the undergraduate application process. With 95% of my students winning admission to their dream colleges, our team consistently wins high praise from students and their parents.
Learn more about my method:
The Montesano Methodology
The Montesano Methodology begins with the student’s grades and test scores but goes well beyond to identify and communicate each student’s unique profile to college admissions officers. It focuses on each student’s distinct qualifications but within a particular college’s applicant pool. And it means preparing and delivering college applications that capture each student’s unique qualifications.
How is The Montesano Methodology different?
The Montesano Methodology is based on data and qualitative interviews. We help students use websites like College Data to track quantitative data such as admit rates, test scores, geographic and minority representation as well as help students learn to conduct qualitative interviews with current students during visits. We also use review sites like Niche.com and StudentsReview.com to determine the current unmet needs of a particular college to get a clearer picture of each institution in a given year.
WHAT FAMILIES ARE SAYING:
The methods that David taught me through the videos helped me hone in on my interests and develop a plan for admission that helped me get into Sarah Lawrence College. I currently focus my study on a combined focus of physics and modern dance.
Sarah Lawrence College
David Montesano's process helped me find the perfect college and showed me how to highlight my strenghts in order to standout from the rest of the applicants. I love USC—it is the perfect place for me to achieve my career goals of being a writer for television!
USC School of Cinematic Arts
My son really became focused…I am forever grateful that all your efforts got him accepted to seven of the best schools. You have my deepest appreciation that Sarah Lawrence College is among them.
