Marketing your way into college


Posted by Ryan DeVito on 22 September 2018

College admission is more competitive than ever. How are you going to stand out from the crowd? The key is marketing yourself, and making a lasting impression on your admissions counselor.

Check out this article. In it, college admissions expert Wendy David- Gaines offers pointed advice on how to market yourself in every item you send to a college. From the college essay, to reports, to interviews, you need to consider how you come off. Remember: every interaction with a college is valuable. As such, make sure that your first impression is positive. From there, prove to your admissions counselor that a new relationship between you and the school will be mutually valuable. That conversation can start with a discussion about your motivations and inspirations. Above all, though, make sure that your message is clear and concise.
