When completing the admission process, we will need to fill out the application. There are various details that are included in the application form and we need to answer them honestly. By not filling all fields, the admission officer will think that the college’s admission process isn’t worth our time. It’s important to fill even the optional questions and the admission officer, should know that we are eager to get admitted into the college. It is also important that we meet deadlines and this should be an obvious thing. In fact, if we send our application far ahead of the deadline, it will be processed first and we may get notifications sooner about the progress of our applications. We are able to show the admission officers that we are genuinely interested and fully organized. So, if we complete the application sooner, this could help our cause. During the admission process, there’s often an interview process and it’s often an intensely part of the admission process.
When facing the admission officer, we should make sure that we can make an entirely positive impression. People could become more sympathetic if we are sincere and humble. Those in the admission office are normal people too and if we are determined and respectable, they should have more respect on us. At first, we should make sure that our appearance can make positive impressions. There are common questions that admission officers could say to us, such why do we choose the college and how we will be able to contribute. The officer may also ask us what do we see ourselves in four years and ten years. We could also be asked to describe ourselves and whether we are truly interested in the major that we will choose. We should be able to answer questions easily if we are properly prepared. We should be able to prove our interests by showing related activities and certifications that we receive in high schools. It is also a good idea if we get recommendations from schools and any trusted individual.
In the application process, recommendations are often the most influential and powerful tools. Unfortunately, this could a highly overlooked component in the application process. Unfortunately, obtaining references and recommendations can’t be obtained quickly. It takes time to prove ourselves that we are worthy of obtaining the references and recommendations. By having recommendation, we should become confident and comfortable in the college admission process. Recommendations can be obtained more easily if we have exceptional skills and capabilities in high schools. In the United States, SAT and ACT are two important indicators about our capabilities. We should take both and we could compare scores to determine at which one we could do better. Often, students get mediocre scores in one test, but get excellent scores at another. We should ask for help if we get stuck. Guidance counselors and parents should be able to provide the necessary assistance so we will succeed in the admission process.
