The #1 Most Important College Admissions Tip from Marjorie Hansen Shaevitz

Dare to be yourself.

Applying to college isn’t just about your GPA and test scores. It’s about finding the right fit for you. And the only way you’ll be able to find your right fit is to be yourself. Colleges really care about the kind of people they admit—you can use your applications and essays to show your academic skills, interests, and even your sense of humor.

If you try to be someone you’re not in your college applications or essays, admissions officers will probably be able to pick up on that. Always stay true to who you are as a student and person and what you want out of your college experience.
