About once a month we ask our highly experienced team of former college admission counselors questions that could provide some inside information about college admissions that could potentially help you. This month we asked, “What was the best college essay you ever read, and what made it stand out to you?”
You’ve been patiently waiting for that first envelope, but when it comes, it’s not the ACCEPT you’ve been hoping for. A rejection is one thing: at least then you have a definitive answer and can move on. But, what if you hear: “You’ve been waitlisted,” or “Your Early Action application has been deferred to our regular admission pool”? These responses from colleges can be confusing to students and parents, but Campus Bound is here to help. Below are some tips and the steps you can take to increase your chances when your application is reviewed a second time around.
You’re starting the college process and everyone wants to know: “What do you want to study?” or “What career are you interested in?” Only problem is, you don’t know yet! The good news is: it’s okay! Campus Bound can help with that.
Fresh off my recent trip to visit colleges in Florida, I compiled a list of secret things college counselors do when we visit colleges. Seeing colleges ourselves helps us guide our students to colleges that are a good “fit.” Campus Bound Counselors are dedicated to staying up-to-date on the latest developments within the realm of college admissions and on the campuses of particular colleges.
