The common application is the most important piece of paper you will fill out for college admissions. Period. And you need to execute it to perfection.
I review the entire common application and supplemental applications to ensure everything is perfect prior to submission. This includes how you fill out the personal information section, extracurricular descriptions, academic GPA/test score/award entries, essays and formatting, supplemental essays, additional information, and supplemental material.
Everything from how to mail additional items to the admissions office, or using SlideRoom to showcase your art portfolio, I understand how to navigate these entire process end to end. The personal information section is especially important and there are lots of tips and tricks that I apply to give you that edge in the admissions process.
How to present your application is reflection of your attention to detail and organization skills that admissions officers care about. I’ve seen some students put together a sloppy application with errors and formatting – and that only serves to work against them.
There are a lot of moving parts to the college application – I know where everything is supposed to go inside and out. In addition, I may add extra material on top of the application (if permitted, depending on each school) to fully display your talents and well-roundedness to the admissions officers.
I am an expert when it comes to crafting out a thought-provoking and meaningful application that will make a lasting impression on the admissions officers. When all is said and done, we will have performed everything we possibly could to get you in – increasing your odds for success.
