Several students have asked for help with the dreaded college application:
"Google it." There is a WEALTH of information out there as well as examples. *WARNING: If ever there were a time when you should heed warnings about plagiarism, this would be the time!!! You do NOT want your first impression to a university to be that you are a thief!!!
Secondly, PROOFREAD, PROOFREAD, PROOFREAD! Have your friends proofread, have your parents proofread, have a teacher proofread, have your DOG proofread! You're not talking about your next four years, you are making lifetime decisions here!!!
***and as a reminder, anytime you ask a teacher for a letter of recommendation make it EASY for them! Give them a cover letter detailing exactly what you want, provide them with an academic resume, and give them a "thank you" note when it's all said and done. Be sure to let them know the results. Teachers are in this profession because they want to help you. Let them know they're doing a good job. :-)
We hope the handouts below will help you will your college search (Don't forget about talking to your counselors! They are an invaluable resource and want to help you succeed!):
