Our Team Knows a Good Story
Craft a College Application Narrative that Stands Out
Let’s Establish Themes that Scream Uniqueness
Dewey Smart believes every student has a distinctive personal story to tell. In the fiercely competitive world of college applications, standing out is not just an option; it’s a necessity!
Perfect GPAs and Test Scores Are Not Enough
Grades and test scores open doors. However, compelling narratives are the only way to walk through them. Don’t just be another applicant. Be the one admissions committees remember!

Everyone loves a good story. College application narratives are stories that students tell about themselves in their applications, leveraging real-life experiences that contribute to their character development - proving college and career readiness.

Why Defining a Narrative Matters
In a nearly endless ocean of applications, a good narrative sets your student apart. Colleges seek more than academic results; they crave authenticity, passion, and diversity. A narrative is the bridge connecting achievements to dreams, creating a lasting impression on admissions officers.

The Dewey Smart Guide to Not Being a Robot
Students Are More Than Scores
If you think playing piano, shooting a basketball, or earning a 4.0 GPA makes your student special, you’re probably a robot.

These days, it takes creativity to find ways for students to prove they’re different from the millions of others applying to college each year. Our Ivy League & Top University counselors have a proven record of identifying opportunities for students to gain meaningful experiences that demonstrate real personality.
