College Admissions Tips
College application season is here, which means students across the nation are immersed in the application process including ever-so-scary college admission essay writing. To help you through this difficult yet make-it-or-break-it moment in time, here are a few of our favorite tips from the best counselors and experts in the industry.
Visit more colleges. Take the time to visit multiple colleges, including both large and small institutions. Visiting a college will not only help you with the decision process, but it will also help with the admissions process. According to independent college counselor and contributor to NorthJersey.com Audrey Kahane, in-person visits to your favorite colleges demonstrate that you're a serious applicant.
Learn about the school. Whether you will be writing a law school admission personal statement or college admission essay, learn about the school before you write. According to Kahane, you can learn more about a college by attending information sessions, interviewing, asking questions and spending time on a college website in addition to visiting the college and spending time with an admissions officer. Learning just about everything there is to know about a certain college enables you to write a more powerful college or business school admission essay.
Be proactive. To boost your chances of getting into the college of your dreams, Kahane suggests getting on the VIP list for local admissions events by signing up through each college's website. In addition, she recommends keeping an eye out for admissions officers visiting your high school. Grab their attention by introducing yourself and seal the deal with a follow up email.
