College application advice

I don’t think that my applications were that great, but I can give some general advice that makes the whole process a bit easier.

  1. Give yourself plenty of time to do it. You probably have to fill out a lot of biographical information which is mostly just time consuming and boring. You also put a lot of stress on yourself by trying to write essays at the last minute, so I would never recommend that.
  2. Start by writing general information about yourself that you think might be interesting. Something you’ve done, experienced, or that motivates you can all be really interesting to work from. It’s better to have too many ideas for topics than too few.
  3. Gets lots of feedback about the essays! People can read drafts and give feedback on them, which at least lets you know how other people perceive your essays.

@HomeworkHelp ~ do you have any other advice that might be helpful?

Same. Colleges and universities here don’t need essays, or at least ones near me, but an entrance exam there is.

Also, kinda intrigued to study abroad so… : D

Most colleges and universities in my country don’t have a very big focus on essays either they usually do interviews or entrance exams.

Does your college accept everyone that applies that is somewhat decent or are they more picky?

Depending on the exam totally!

But for the Art school I’m currently attending I didn’t really have to do a traditional exam just a bunch of art-related assignments. It was still quite stressful though as they only allowed in about 10 people or so :eyes:
