College Advice Line

If you were looking for advice in the last post, you aren’t going to find it. It’s here instead…

  • Don’t overthink it and try to change the admission officer’s view of you. If the college does not want you for who you are, then you shouldn’t go there anyway
  • Write passionately about what you care about, no matter how boring the question
  • Don’t try to be Kevin Fugaro, because you’re not
  • Do what you love and love what you do, as cliche as that sounds
  • Take classes you will like not classes admission folks will like because you’re bound to better in classes you have an interest in
  • Boycott the monopolistic College Board (optional)
  • Listen to your college counselor
  • Don’t spend too much time on Naviance
