  • Top Ten Mistakes
    Students Make on
    Their College Application Essays
    "The more exclusive the college, the more weight given to the essay than GPA"  New York Times

    Don’t wait until the fall of senior year to discover in the midst of a hectic schedule how vital these essays are and how difficult the process can be to set yourself apart from all the other applicants.

    Spring is the best time to learn what is needed for the most important element of the college application process.

    Learn the secrets to become a highly desirable candidate. Discover the purpose of the essay and what admission officers are looking for. Recognize what not to do so you don’t waste valuable time.

    Sponsored by the Wellness Committee

    Choose activities you like. A lot of different things count as exercise: dancing, walking, gardening, yoga, cycling, playing basketball. You don't need to get all of your exercise at one time. Ten minutes in the morning, noon and night can give you much of the same benefit as 30 minutes all at once.
