College admissions officers first look at test scores, grades, and the rigor of courses students take in high school. However, what are also important in the admissions process are a student’s extracurricular activities. Students are a representative of the college they attend, and it goes without saying colleges care about the character of the people they admit to their school. Extracurricular...

As competition among college applicants has become more dog-eat-dog, high school seniors are more pressured than ever to distinguish themselves from other applicants. Volunteering and community service are great ways to do exactly that.
What to Avoid
Many students nowadays make it obvious that they are volunteering simply because they have to in order to get into college. Many of...
I have worked in graduate admissions in higher education for over 10 years, and during this time, I have read a lot of personal statements – some good and some not-so-good. So, what qualities help to make a good personal statement that will help a student gain admission into the program of his or her choice? While admissions committees do consider a variety of factors in their decisions,...
Students have a wonderful opportunity to show admissions officers who they really are, by using the college essay to stand out from the crowd. In my experience, if you find a topic that you care about, and you write an essay that speaks from your heart, you will have a successful application experience. Admissions officers have to read dozens of applications per day in the 'busy season'. If you...
I’ve been thinking lately about why college application essays—any personal writing, really—triggers so much anxiety. Andrew Ferguson gives us a marvelously
personal perspective when he describes his experience as a father shepherding his 17-year-old son through writing the college essays during their last holiday break. He calls this process “the Great Extrusion,” where parents brace...

Here’s the thing:
YOUR GRAMMAR AND SPELLING IN YOUR COLLEGE APPLICATION ESSAY MUST, MUST, MUST BE PRACTICALLY PERFECT IN EVERY WAY!
You may be rolling your eyes and saying, “What’s a little mix-up between...
You may be thinking, “Rosie, your essay advice is great, but my applications are due in just a few months and I’m applying to nine different schools and they all have different essay prompts and I have soccer and homework and my job and babysitting to do. How am I ever going to finish nine different essays? AHHHH! I’m not going to college!”
Okay, that last part got a tad Lifetime movie-ish,...
One of the greatest joys of the private college advising process is celebrating how things turn out for your clients at the end. This 2010-2011 school year, I helped students apply to over 30 colleges. I am pleased to say that all of my advisees who have heard so far gained admission to their top choices: Bryn Mawr, Hampton, Howard, Occidental, University of Maryland, and Pennsylvania. Today is...
