Advice to Applicants:
Trust your instincts about the college search. Your list should be your list of colleges. Not what others have dreamed up for you. Be open minded about your college choices. Be mindful, thoughtful, and intentional about the process. Involve trusted mentors, teachers, friends, family, or guardians to assist you with the process when appropriate.
Provide yourself PLENTY of time to craft essays that reflect your distinct voice. Ask for recommendations from teachers and counselors providing them plenty of time to write excellent things about you. Create your distinct extracurricular list which is comprehensive and thorough. Our mission is distinct and important. We want to know through all kinds of evidence you provide throughout your application how you can be a "force for good."
