Shedding Light on Oversharing

This label will not help you get in.

This label will not help you get in.

Students now grow up revealing personal details on social media sites, often becoming desensitized to the impact of the information posted. Fast forward to the college application process where students are pressured into finding a way to stand out among thousands of other applicants.

The result is the temptation for students to overshare intimate details of their lives in the attempt to grab the attention of admissions officers. While taking a risk can often set a student apart, the type of information shared must be carefully considered. Definitely get feedback from others before going down this path to make sure that you are leaving a positive impact on your reader. This recent article in the New York Times expertly illustrates the pitfalls of oversharing. Here's a story shared by one of Yale's former admissions officers about a girl who sabotaged her application by giving too much information:

"The Yale applicant had terrific test scores. She had fantastic grades...Then he got to her essay. As he remembers it, she mentioned a French teacher she greatly admired. She described their one-on-one conversation at the end of a school day. And then, this detail: During their talk, when an urge to go to the bathroom could no longer be denied, she decided not to interrupt the teacher or exit the room. She simply urinated on herself."

Summer Experiences Becoming A Critical Factor in College Admissions

We know you'll find the summer experience that is perfect for you.

We know you'll find the summer experience that is perfect for you.

As juniors work hard to finish the school year off strong, it's important not to lose focus on the summer that is right around the corner. According to this article on cnbc.com, where you go to camp could not only inspire you to write a standout essay, but it could also increase your chances of admission to your dream college. With constantly decreasing admissions odds, choosing a specialized camp which demonstrates your dedication to something can make all the difference. According to Mark Kantrowitz, senior vice president and publisher at Edvisors Network:

"By being stronger on the extracurricular activities, you can actually make up somewhat for weaknesses academically...If you had a transformative experience at the summer camp or a big impact on others, that tells them more about who you are as an individual, especially if you can write about how it set you in a particular direction. If something is of interest to you, you're more likely to write a passionate essay."

 

 

CollegeNET Sues the Common App

collegenetThere's no doubt that the Common App did not deliver on its promises this past season. Not only were no supplements available on August 1, the "new and improved" Common App was riddled with glitches, missing essay questions, and payment, formatting, and submitting issues. In other words, it was a nightmare for many students (especially those without College Essay Organizer to lead the way) since it is used exclusively by many of its more than 500 member schools. CollegeNET Inc., a competing company that customizes and processes online application forms for higher education and nonprofit groups, just filed a lawsuit against the Common App for violating U.S. antitrust laws and consequently harming students. According to CollegeNET, the Common App is trying to monopolize the application process, and the company is seeking money damages. See this article for more details.

Common App Board Admits Mistakes

common-app-picThis past admissions season, thousands of students were caught off guard by technological glitches, missing or incorrect essay questions, and a host of other issues that occurred while preparing and submitting the Common App. In an attempt to regain public confidence, the Common App hired Censeo, a DC-based consulting firm, to survey members and investigate the causes of the catastrophe. See this article by Nancy Griesemer for a summary of the findings including:

  • Numerous glitches were due to inefficient and insufficient testing
  • The timeline for rolling out CA4 was unrealistic given the scope of the project and member feedback was not considered
  • Decision-making throughout the organization was not well-organized enough to handle wide-spread issues in a timely manner

Regardless of whether or not the Common App is able to sort out its issues going forward, there's one lesson our grateful members learned last season: be proactive and do not rely on the Common App to provide all of your essay questions. College Essay Organizer members not only got timely notifications as to when supplemental essays were available, but they also got all the essay questions (even the many not available through the Common App) all in one place, and organized by topic so students were ready to write.
