Create applications that get noticed!
All college applications have one thing in common -- they're blank at first. So how do you turn an empty form into a testimony to your personality, achievement, and enthusiasm?
Jump into your story.
Many college application readers say that essays with a great opening line and a small "slice of life" story capture their attention and make the applicant memorable.
Show you have researched the college.
Mention specific things that appeal to you about the school, such as its mission, programs in your major, and faculty. Don't write a cookie-cutter application that could apply to any college.
Demonstrate your interest.
Mention any visits you have made to the campus and conversations you've had with college representatives, student leaders, or professors.
