posted in: Seniors | 0

Details matter on your college applications – so get them right! Seniors, the time to submit your college applications is fast approaching and it’s around this time that many of you may be overwhelmed with all of your different responsibilities. Pay close attention to making sure you’re providing accurate details to every question. We recommend you spend 15-30 minutes per day on college applications all season long, so you are not too taxed with details on any one day. Also, have a trusted person double-check your application for errors.

On the UC & CSU applications, for example, if you don’t report your classes or grades accurately you could be admitted (or denied!) under false pretenses. It’s crucial to make sure everything is completely accurate, as the college could rescind your admission if it’s found out your reported grades or test scores were in error. Your GPA plays a huge role in your college acceptances so make sure you fill in the correct grades! Double check your application so there aren’t any errors getting in the way of your being admitted to a CSU or UC campus, or any other college or university!

Getting something simple like your social security number wrong can hold up your application for weeks while other students are being reviewed. Don’t let your many years of hard work go to waste because of a simple application error. Make sure every detail is accurate and updated. College admission reps have thousands of applications to read and any which appear to have errors may be set aside while other applications are reviewed. The amount of extra time it takes to get your application reviewed because of a small inaccuracy could be the difference between your getting admitted or being denied.

We hold our students to a very high standard when it comes to accuracy, requiring them to work directly off their transcript and academic resume. Hold yourself to that same standard! We want our students to have the highest chance of success, so we make sure they are working entirely from documents and not making any guesses when filling out their applications. After all, a simple mistake could affect their chances of being accepted.

We review all applications with a fine-toothed comb making sure all details are correct. We will look through every part of your application to ensure the information and details are completely accurate. If we do come across something that may potentially be an error, we jump all over it! Don’t let a silly error derail your chances of getting the answer you want: admit!
