2.1. Tips for the application process

Getting Started

▪ Set up a folder for each application. Keep all material relevant to each college in its own
▪ Review all application materials as they arrive. Set up a schedule for completing them. Completing applications is not much fun, and you may be inclined to put off this task as long as you can. Procrastination is risky. There is a lot to do, especially if you have several essays to write. You may not do the application (and yourself) justice if you leave it to the last minute. Remember: Leave enough time for correcting and revising. ▪ Make two or more copies of the whole application to use as rough drafts and extras in case you make a serious error and ruin the original.
Completing the Application Process

▪ Review the application and its directions completely before you start to work on it.
▪ Work on your rough draft in pencil so that you can make changes easily
▪ Be accurate, honest and neat. Spell correctly and use good grammar
▪ Although for neatness and legibility it may be better to type the factual sections of your
application form, typing is not required. If you believe you can do a neat, legible, and accurate job completing it by hand, go ahead. Be sure to print legibly in ink. Black ink is often preferred because it copies clearly in copy machines. ▪ If possible, type your essay question responses. ▪ At your request, the College Entrance Examination Board sends the official records of your entrance test scores directly to the colleges. Do not send a photocopy of your own test score report unless requested to do so. Sometimes, a college accepts a photocopy as a mean of obtaining preliminary information, but it will require the official report to make an official offer of admission ▪ When you have completed your application, ask someone to review it and check it for errors. Keep one extra blank copy on hand in case you need to redo it.
2.2 Terms You Should Know

Early Decision – a program under which a student receives early notification of a college
admissions decision

The student must agree in advance to enroll if accepted. Students may apply early decision to
only one college; it should be a clear first choice. Application deadlines or early decision are
usually in November, with decision letters mailed by mid-December. Students who are
contemplating applying under the early decision plan should do all of their admissions tests
(SATI, SATII, TOEFL) by the end of their junior year.
Early Action – a program that gives students early notification of a college’s admissions

Unlike early decision, the early action plan does not require a prior commitment to enroll if
accepted. Early action, far less common than early decision, far less common than early
decision, is primarily associated with schools such as Brown, Harvard, MIT, Georgetown,
Boston College. Students may apply to more than one school under the early action plan. An
applicant accepted under early action usually has until May, the candidate’s reply date, to
respond to the offer of admission.
Rolling Admissions – a policy under which a college considers applications almost
immediately after receiving them.

Decision letters are mailed within a month after the application is filed. Colleges with rolling
admissions continue to accept applications only until the class is filled, so it is best to apply
Open Admissions – a policy under which any applicant with a high school diploma is
At state universities that have this policy, open admission is usually limited to state residents.
Waiting List – a list of students who are not initially accepted, but who may be depending
on the number of accepted students who enroll.
Most colleges ultimately accept only a fraction of the students on the waiting list who are
notified during the summer.
2.3. What Colleges look for in an Applicant

Proven Academic Achievement: The most important factor in the college admissions
decision is your academic transcript. Colleges are looking for strong grades in an
academically challenging program. Specifically, they will be looking at the types of courses
you have taken, the number of courses, the level of courses and the grades you earned. Did
you take the most challenging academic program that you are capable of handling? How did
you perform in the courses you have taken?
Standardized Test Scores: The amount of weight placed on standardized test scores in the
admissions process varies from college to college. Standardized scores provide colleges with a
measure to compare students from different schools. As a general rule, the more selective the
college the more important test scores are, due to the rigorous and academically challenging
programs offered at selective institutions. It’s important to keep in mind that standardized test
scores are only one of many factors that college admission officers consider when evaluating
an application.
Extracurricular Involvement/Work Experience: Here the emphasis is on quality rather
than quantity. College admissions officers are not interested in a list of ten activities with little
time commitment and involvement. Admissions officers are looking for those students who
have invested their time, energy and commitment to pursuing one or two activities in –depth.
In short, admission officers are looking for those individuals that will make a genuine
commitment to their college community.
Essays: This is the part of the application that students often rush to complete. The essay is a
critical factor in the admissions decision and, it is entirely under your control. Take the time to
think about and write an essay that demonstrates your writing ability and makes your
application “come alive”. The essay is your golden opportunity to let them know more about
who you are, what you value and what your future goals are.
Interview: Some colleges require or recommend an interview while others do not. For some
schools, the interview is provided solely to inform you about the college and provide you with
an opportunity to ask questions. For other schools, the interview provides admissions officers
with additional information about you and your future goals. Depending on the school, this
information may or may not be used during the application decision-making process.
School Recommendations: The school recommendation is written by your college counselor.
As your primary advocates, we attempt to present an assessment which is fair and accurate
and which emphasizes achievements and talents. This comprehensive letter includes
information about academics; extra-curricular involvement; and, most importantly, a sense of
the character of the applicant. All recommendations remain confidential to ensure integrity.
Teacher Recommendations: Each College has its own specific requirements for teacher
recommendations, but in most cases two are requested. Some colleges are very specific and
ask for recommendations from teachers in certain disciplines. The teachers you choose to
write your recommendation should be from your junior and/or senior year courses and should
be able to speak to your abilities and accomplishments both in and outside the classroom.
The Application Itself: Presentation is everything! Never work on an original application
before completing a draft copy with your college counselor. Neatness and clarity are
important. The appearance and content of the application will reflect a great deal about you,
therefore, it is very important that you invest time and thought into each application. Unless
otherwise stated, you should always type your application.
Special Talents: Admissions officers are looking for unique individuals, students with special
talents or experiences that set them apart form other candidates: outstanding musicians,
writers, actor, athletes and editors. Colleges are looking for individuals whose unique talents
will make significant contribution to their college communities.
Outside Recommendations: These recommendations can sometimes be helpful to support
your out-of-school activities or work experience.

Legacy Status: At many colleges the daughters and sons of alumni receive special
consideration in the application process. Although legacy status is not a guarantee for
admission, alumni children usually get a “second look”.
2.4 Common Parts of an Admissions Folder
1. Application: Most can be downloaded from the computer or actually completed
online. If this is not an option, many schools in the U.S. accept the “ Common Application” which is available on line. If neither of these applies, you can obtain one directly from the college. Request one early to allow for international mailing! The application must be done neatly, thoroughly and with extensive thought. You must proofread it many times and ask others to do the same for you. You should always keep a copy of your completed application for your records.
2. Test Scores: Standardized tests give the college some foundation to compare you to
other applicants. These should be reported directly from the testing service. Many colleges/universities will not accept copies of the scores submitted by the high school. 3. Essay: The essay is your chance to capture your individuality and present it to the
admissions officer. While it is important to show your talents and accomplishments, be careful not to come across as bragging. Being an international student may set you apart. The admissions committee will want to know how that experience has affected you and how you used that to develop your own sense of self. 4. Recommendations: Your teachers are great source of information for the admissions
officers. It is strongly suggested to submit at least two letters of recommendation for every application, whether required or not. 5. Transcript: you must request a transcript to be mailed with your application. Be sure
to complete a form for each application, which is turned into the counseling office. 6. Application Fee: It is your responsibility to make sure that the application fee is paid
7. Additional Materials: Some colleges will allow you to add extra material if have
outstanding talent or if you are an accomplished musician, artist, writer, etc. It is not necessary that you are going to major in that area but that you continue to be involved at some level. 8. School profile
9. Mid –year report: most selective schools will require a mid-year report be
submitted by the counselor regarding academic progress during the student’s
seniors year.

10. All non-American students who apply to a college or university in the U.S. must
complete the following requirements:
a. Proof of funds: A statement from a bank official is required that will provide
proof that the parents have sufficient funds that will cover the college expenses. b. I-20 form: each university/college will issue an I-20 form to students who are
accepted to their school and agree to attend. c. Student Visa: The American Embassy will issue a visa to individuals with a

It seems that no task in the entire admissions process causes students as much anxiety as does
the writing of the application essay. Applicants know that a poor essay can weaken the effect
of strong grades and SAT scores. On the other hand, a good essay can strengthen the
application that might suffer from a less than dazzling academic record.
Good essays are important for a number of reasons. They offer the university and opportunity
to become acquainted with you in ways different from your grades, test scores, and other
objective data. They animate the writer as a real person, someone who is unique and worth
knowing. They help college admissions officers determine how well students are suited for
college life in general and for individual schools especially. When your essay conveys a
dynamic, honest, and self-motivated image, you definitely improve your chances for
3.1 Tips for Writing College Essays
▪ Leave enough time so that you can write several drafts. Meet with your English teacher or
college counselor for feedback on your essay before the final draft. ▪ The opening and closing of your essay are critical. Use a “grabber” in the first paragraph. Say something about yourself that will make the reader want to know more. Keep in mind that the admissions officer might be reading 50 essays a day – so you want yours to stand out and grab the reader’s attention from the very first sentence. Then at the end, consider returning to the attention – getter that you used in the opening (if you opened with a quote, close with one, or refer back to it; opened with a startling statement? Close with a reference to it, or another one). This is a very effective “trick” that makes your essay ending polished and impresses the reader. Whatever technique you choose, remember this: a conclusion is powerful. It should be persuasive and memorable – don’t “tack it on” at the end. This will spoil your essay. ▪ Give your reader a “Big Idea”, that is, tell them what your essay has to do with the larger world and other issues that might be relevant to our lives. Readers will love this; it will make them feel like they did not waste their time reading. ▪ Don’t try to write what you think the admissions committee wants to hear. Readers are not looking for something in particular; they want to learn more about who you are. In many cases, the admissions officer will not be able to personally interview you, therefore, the essay should make the reader feel as if he/she has personally met you and learned something of value and memorable about you. ▪ Do read the directions carefully. You will want to answer the questions as directly as possible, and you’ll want to follow word limits. ▪ Do focus on an aspect of yourself that will show your best side. You might have overcome some adversity, worked through a difficult process, or profited from a specific incident. A narrow focus is more interesting than are broad-based generalizations. ▪ The topic doesn’t have to be dramatic or bizarre or unusual. You can write about the most ordinary daily activity, or a story you read. (The dean of admissions at an Ivy League School reported one year that the best essay of the year was entitled “Five Minutes Waiting in a Gas Station”). It’s what you learn and observe or how you’ve changed that count. The admissions officer wants to get a better sense of and understanding of you. ▪ Never use the essay to tell why you have such poor grades, or how you know your next term will be better. An essay of excuses, no matter how valid, highlights your weaknesses. Your essay should always lead from your strengths. If you feel you have a good explanation for poor grades, discuss it with your guidance counselor – he or she is the one to tell the college excuses, not you. ▪ The more selective the college, the more emphasis is usually places on the essay. Good ▪ Be positive about yourself without bragging. Avoid self put-downs. ▪ Avoid dull lists of extracurricular activities, offices held, awards won, or countries visited. ▪ Use “I” to express a thought, not “You”. ▪ Most important: remember that English isn’t just for English class! Apply the good writing skills you have learned in class and use all standard rules of good writing skills you have learned in class and use all standard rules of good writing. Don’t try to impress the reader by using big words you looked up in a Thesaurus – you may use the word inappropriately and you risk having the essay sound stiff and insincere.
