Tips straight from admissions counselors l.jpg
TIPS STRAIGHT FROM ADMISSIONS COUNSELORS:

  • Be careful how you present yourself online! Admissions counselors are looking at Myspace.com and Facebook.com. Don’t put anything on the internet that you wouldn’t want your dream college to see!

  • Admissions counselors read thousands of applications… Stand out from the crowd! Be creative!

  • With rolling applications – earlier is better.

  • If you get wait-listed at your dream school, write a letter! The more you make the admissions office aware of your interest, the better your chances of being admitted if a slot opens up.

  • Challenge yourself junior and senior year. Colleges want students who will succeed and increase retention rates. Taking honors and AP classes proves your ability to work at the college level.
