Bringing Reality into the Admission Process

Janet Lavin Rapelye, the dean of admission at Princeton University, continues to answer questions for The Choice Blog readers. One of her latest responses focused on parents' need to have a "guarantee" that their child will get into the Ivies. She states that there is none, and offers a realistic approach to the admission process:

"If students are applying only to highly selective schools, they will encounter steep competition. Spreading a wide net in terms of the selectivity of the colleges where they apply will greatly enhance the number of admission choices they will have in April."

Her take-home point: "Be realistic about the competition and set your son or daughter up for success in the process."

Princeton's Dean of Admission Talks About College Essays

Janet Rapelye, the dean of admission at Princeton University, is answering admissions questions for The New York Times' Choice Blog this week. Her first posting addressed the importance of taking time to write your college essays:

"Your ability to write well is critical to our decision because your writing reflects your thinking. No matter what question is asked on a college application, admission officers are looking to see how well you convey your ideas and express yourself in writing. It is our window to your world."

This definitely reinforces the fact that college essays can play a pivotal role in acceptance to a college. Starting early, staying organized, and investing considerable time perfecting your prose may make all the difference in getting accepted to your top choice college.

Washington State University Application is Live for 2012-2013

Washington State University, another long-awaited application, has finally gone live for the 2012-2013 season. There were no remarkable changes from last year, though WSU's application does offer a unique series of essay questions that allow the applicant to share many aspects of his or her character and accomplishments (6 required questions and 2 scholarship questions in total). Here's a preview of the different topics that the required questions cover:

  • Leadership/group contributions
  • Knowledge or creativity in a field
  • Dealing with adversity
  • Community service
  • Handling systemic challenges
  • Goals/task commitment

Sounds like they are really looking for well-rounded applicants!

Mount Holyoke College is Updated for the 2012-2013 Season

While Mount Holyoke College's Common App supplement is still not live, it did post a pdf of its 2012-2013 supplement on its website. As was the case last year, the questions were chosen from submissions by prospective students to its essay contest. We always love when students create the essay questions, as they always prove to be original and creative. Here's the latest three options to choose from:

A) What is the first thing you noticed about our College? What kept you interested, and what would you like to contribute to our community? — submitted by Lauren O., (Sarasota, FL)

B) What do you miss most from your childhood? —submitted by Katie T. (Hadley, MA)

C) If you didn’t know how old you were, how old would you be? —submitted by Hyun Ji “Jaime” K. (Eugene, OR)
