Tell colleges you are intrigued with their campus and interested in their programs! Showing your interest can boost your chances of getting admitted. Colleges want to know not only that prospective students will bring a positive vibe to the campus—they want to know that if they admit you, you will likely accept their offer! In short, colleges want to be loved as much as students want colleges to love them!
A student’s “demonstrated interest” can be a pivotal factor in admissions decisions. Students have various opportunities to show genuine interest in the colleges they are applying to. College fairs and tours, college visits, interviews, and notes to admissions offices all give students the opportunity to demonstrate interest. Students can of course solidify their interest by sharing SPECIFIC DETAILS in their essays about why they’re looking forward to attending each college.
Colleges are more likely to favor the student who shows interest. Students who show interest to colleges have a higher chance of being admitted when compared to students who have similar qualifications but who don’t demonstrate the same level of interest. Many colleges track this data so be sure to get in touch with the colleges you like!
