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 College Prowler 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 STUDENTS 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.
