Inside the College Admissions Process

While the below article is from February 2011, much of it still rings true today.  There are so many factors that come into play in the college admissions process.  The admissions game doesn’t really follow a particular set of rules which is why the process seems so mysterious to most of us.  There is no predetermined formula to gain admission to a certain college because the process is subjective.  In the end whether you are admitted or not is dependent on what one or a few other members of an admissions committee thinks of you based on hard core facts, including your grades, test scores, extracurricular activities, and community service, and what you choose to write about.  As revealed by the admissions officer, the college essay can be the tie breaker for two applicants with similar grades, test scores, and activities.  Again, there is no magic formula for that essay either, but there are some key things to keep in mind when writing it.  In my next post, I will share with you what one competitive university looks for in a college essay.  For now, I leave you with the article…enjoy!!
