December is here and that means our application reading season is in full swing. For you seniors, we hope your application is among the Early Decision and Regular Decision applications we will be reading between now and February!
Here is an interesting fact: your essay and answers to the three questions in our writing supplement are the only components of your application you can influence just before submitting it to us! You have already earned your grades in the courses you have chosen, taken your tests (if you are submitting them to us), made the impression on your reference sources, etc.
So, take time to pen, review and submit quality writing. Make sure you express your ideas clearly, check your spelling and grammar, and submit your writing with confidence it is your best work. In our holistic review of you and your application, your writing counts!
Best wishes to each of you for a wonderful and meaningful holiday season!
