Now here is another interesting comments, urging to speak out 7 myths so commonly spread in our conceptions of college admissions from Washington Posts.
- It’s best to set your heart on one school and really go for it.
- The tuition price listed in brochures is what everyone pays.
- The admissions department adores you.
- It’s best to crowd your application with a volume of extracurriculars.
- It’s better to have a high GPA than to take difficult classes.
- Essays don’t really matter much in the end because grades and test scores are so dominant in admissions decisions.
- Recommendations from famous people can give an applicant a huge boost.
Again, amazingly disproving our common conceptions. Breaking our ideas about college admissions. It’s interesting how essays would matter, how power of writings would matter. -R
