Tips for a Great Application
Make your application stand out
1. Identify your growth
Tell us how and/or why your most important activities (perhaps an AP physics project, a team captaincy, or a tutorial project in the inner city) have changed you. We want to know what you have learned from your experiences, not just what you have done.
2. Share your history
View the admission forms as the place to chronicle your family background, school history, activities, work experiences, and other autobiographical information. Be clear and concise and use specific detail.
3. Articulate your inspiration
Use the subjective questions and the essay to express aspects of your character and experience that we may not discern from your courses and grades. Do not tell us only about your successes; tell us about what you truly enjoy doing, what inspires you, and what holds meaning for you. The quality of your writing is particularly important here.
4. Meet us
