College admission tips: Quick tip # 2

Quick Tip # 2: Answer the prompt

A common mistake applicants make during the college application process is not answering the essay prompt. Applicants apply to multiple colleges and as a result, tend to reuse essays to speed up the process. However, this is a mistake. Every college application has a unique essay prompt, and although prompts may overlap, it’s important to take time to answer each prompt thoroughly. To answer a prompt, I recommend drafting an outline since it saves time, allows applicants to organize their thoughts, and allows applicants to devise a plan before beginning the prompt writing process.
