Ally Cafaro, MMC Admissions Counselor

Name: Alexandra (Ally) Cafaro

What do you love about MMC? Everything! But truly, what I love most about MMC is how supportive of an environment it is. Students, faculty, staff and alumni are always willing to lend a helping hand and cheer on each other’s successes.  I think the common support we have for one another makes our small school on the Upper East Side a wonderfully inviting and unique place! 

Best memory at MMC: Working in the Office of Admission is an extremely gratifying job. There is no better feeling than granting admission to a student that I know would be a perfect fit for our close-knit community. My best memory at MMC (so far) was when I got the opportunity to tell a student, in person, that they had been accepted to our school. Seeing the smile on their face and the excitement in their eyes was electrifying and made me so thankful to work at such a wonderful institution!

Advice for Students: Be proud of who you are and truly embrace the unique qualities that make you, you!
