  • Here's some general application advice:

    • Keep it real. Don't exaggerate your accomplishments or claim things that aren't true.
    • Give letter-writers time. If you are asking teachers for letters of recommendation, ask several weeks ahead of time.
    • Beat the deadline. Reduce the chance your application will get lost in the shuffle. Submit it well before the deadline.
    • Apply online. It's easier for you and the colleges you apply to.
    • Emphasize your uniqueness. Colleges like student bodies made up of people with different viewpoints and experiences. If you can add to that mix, let them know.
    • Keep it clean online. Don't have anything on your MySpace or Facebook page that you wouldn't want a college admissions officer to see.
    • Submit one application for many schools. Some colleges and universities share common online applications. Once you complete the application for one school, you can submit copies of it to other schools. Saves a lot of time.
    • Keep copies of everything. Things can get lost. Protect your hard work by keeping complete copies of everything you send to every school.
