Allison Singh

Allison Singh is the author of Getting Over Not Getting In: A College Rejection Guide, an annual publication to help students make sense of college rejection. An attorney, fiction writer, and mother, Singh did not plan on writing about college admission. While searching for books on college rejection to help a friend, she soon realized that none exist. So she wrote one. A graduate of Dartmouth College and Georgetown University Law Center, Singh wants students to benefit from her experience in the “real world” and embrace that success is up to them, not the name on their diploma. She runs the website, Facebook Page “College Rejection,” and Tweets at @collegereject. Singh brings her “Rejection Roadshow” to schools in the fall and spring. Contact for more information.
