I applied to schools through QuestBridge because of the commitment the partner schools have in ensuring a quality education to students who cannot afford it. The larger community of QuestBridge students, not just those at Notre Dame, appealed to me because of the support system available.

Being admitted to Notre Dame as a Questbridge student has allowed me to join an amazing community of people from which I have learned a lot and from which I will continue learning more. There are so many people who don’t reach their full potential not for lack of ability or effort, but because of a lack of opportunity. Questbridge stands as that link between capability and opportunity. I feel myself growing into the person I know I can be thanks in part to the opportunities Questbridge has awarded to me.

When my guidance counselor described the QuestBridge program, it seemed too good to be true. Applying to schools was hard, especially when you had no idea how you will be able to afford it and no idea where to start. I didn’t attend any college preparatory classes or after school programs; I didn’t even know they existed and I’m sure we wouldn’t have been able to afford them. QuestBridge helped show me the schools that were willing to work with students with a hope for higher education but with serious financial concerns. It was amazing to see the list of schools that were on the list making the statement that, if we were accepted, we wouldn’t have to worry about how we could afford cost of attendance.
