Sometimes little things make the college admission decision difference

When it comes to getting in to college, little things can be the key to acceptance. Students often fail to fully answer questions about whether any members of their family attended a college, or to fully list their ethnicity or volunteer activities. Students often skip the optional essay and the extra question at the end of the application that asks if there is anything else the admissions committee should know about them.
 
Brilliant students sometimes hastily write essays that are repetitive and reveal little about themselves to admissions readers trying to determine which students are the best fit for their college. The number of students with high grade point averages, great standardized test scores and impressive activity and volunteer resumes has grown exponentially. Make sure your student helps admissions readers see how they are unique in terms of their outstanding character qualities and interests through admission applications that are carefully prepared and proofed before they hit the "send" button.
