Dominique Smart

Dominique Smart is a graduate of Rutgers University-Newark where she majored in biological science and psychology.  In anticipation of medical school Dominique recognized the importance of strong academic writing skills and integrated the ACES writing strategy into her own writing.  Not only was the ACES writing strategy an asset for Dominique in her Literature, History, and Honors courses at Rutgers, but also in her writing intensive Field Ecology and Neuropathophysiology courses, where she was expected to compose extensive lab reports and analyze various books and research articles for scientific research presentations. Most significantly, Dominique utilized the ACES writing strategy during high-pressure standardized assessments including the MCAT and GREs.  She is particularly proud of her scores on the writing subsections of the exams. So much pride that she has devoted her spare time to developing and designing the ACES website with Dr. Rogowsky and is hopeful that users of the ACES writing strategy will improve the quality of their writing.
