The college applications process is the most important rite of passage students experience while still living at home. Invest now in maximizing acceptance rates. What could be more important?
Most colleges require a substantial personal statement as part of each application. Just 250-650 words on the Common App can separate many students from acceptance to the colleges of their dreams.
Colleges want to know more about applications than grades, scores and activities reveal. They want to know each student as a person, not merely a collection of numbers and teachers’ descriptions. They want to know the level of writing skill, the ways students make sense of experiences, how they think about complex issues, and ultimately, if they will thrive on their campus.
