College Applications: It Takes Four Minutes to Review What You’ve Done in Four Years
It’s never been more true that “less is more” when it comes to your college applications.
4 minutes is the amount of time UPenn says it takes to ACCEPT, DENY or WAITLIST/DEFER each applicant. Concise, to the point, and be selective on how you choose to convey yourself on your college applications.
I always say, colleges don’t accept students, they accept applications and that you have just a few minutes to catch those admissions officer’s attention. So, if you haven’t believed me in the past, maybe now this will be proof for you to do so now.
And keep in mind, the objective pieces of the application (grades/test scores) need to be competitive and in line with that school’s criteria for everything else in the application to matter.
