5 Ways the 2016 Report from U.S. Colleges Affects Your Admissions Plan
100 colleges endorsed fundamental shifts in their admissions evaluation process.
Be cognizant of these changes that affect your future applications as you make plans and devise strategies.
SPECIALIZE: Selective colleges aren’t looking for an extensive brag sheet or a gazillion activities. Unearth your strengths, develop those areas with focus and sustained commitment. Specialties reveal a depth of engagement and high aptitude.
LEADERSHIP COUNTS: Leadership and deep involvement that effect progress and deliver solutions are inspiring and empowering for others. They allow you to stand out from the pack as you make an impact pursuing your passion.
INTELLECTUAL ENGAGEMENT: Develop an academic or intellectual area that captures your interest and challenges your thinking. Deeply acquaint yourself with a topic or subject; devote time for scholarly work. Show the depth of your intellectual engagement.
PERSONAL MATTERS: Your character, motivation, actions and practices have always mattered. They likely will be evaluated with greater interest and care now—assessed, in part, through your recommendation letters, essays, and interview.
COMMON GOOD: Participate in meaningful, skill-building community service projects and activities over a sustained period. Be civically engaged. Tackle community problems that sharpen problem-solving and organizational skills.
