Comic Relief from AIS: Admission Induced Stress!!

The Accurate Admissions Resource Guide (AARG)

 

Pull Back The Curtain

The reality is, admission is nothing like the movie Admission. Most students believe that admission counselors wear pearl necklaces and business suits to sleep and swim. But guess what? They’re normal people! Contrary to the popular conception that admission counselors are on the brink of the grave, the average age is 26 years old. Think about the person who was your babysitter as a kid … that’s the guy or girl reading your essay and reviewing your application. What would you tell that person about yourself? Wouldn’t you feel comfortable in that conversation? Psyching yourself out by imagining a bespectacled curmudgeon administrator only makes AIS more intense.

Lasso the Numbers

Maybe you think admission to college is ALL riding on your numbers. Don’t be intimidated by the statistics you see online at different schools. Most schools show you an average or a middle 50% range. If you see an average, don’t forget what that means — students on both sides of that number WERE ADMITTED! If you see the middle-50% of a freshman class, it means half of the students fall into that range. That leaves 25% with lower scores than the range, and 25% that were higher.

Find the Formula

We know, we know… you’re looking for THE answer. So grab a pen because here’s how you get in to your dream school: Take two years of Spanish, volunteer at a local hospital, spin around three times, and practice your half-court jumpshot.

The truth is, there is no magic formula. Admission to competitive schools involves a holistic and comprehensive review process. That means everything is taken into account: grades, classes, scores, essays, leadership, and extracurricular involvement, among other factors. And it can be daunting to know you'll be judged and compared. So focus on what you can control: Do a thorough job on the application, write an essay that you believe really captures your voice, have a few people review your application, and then send it in!

You can't predict or control the number or quality of applications a school will receive. There will be institutional priorities at each school that you'll never fully know. So do your best, take a breath, submit your application, and then go back to enjoying your senior year.

 

 

A Definition of Selective Admissions

Selective Admissions is a human process and a holistic process, whose ultimate goal is to create a well balanced class in which every candidate considered is valued for his/her intellectual vitality, diversity of thought and experience, as well as the many combinations of contributions to school, family and community.
