College Application Essays Do's and Don'ts | Eric Greenberg For many years, private colleges routinely granted interviews with admissions officers to prospective students. As the number of students applying has dramatically increased, many colleges have been unable to keep up with such demand and are not interviewing at all or are often providing alumni interviews. As colleges tend to have many applicants with high standardized test scores (SAT and/or ACT) and impressive academic grades, it inherently becomes harder for schools to effectively differentiate among students. Many colleges, as a result, are looking more closely than in years past at the application essays, extracurricular and community service "resumes" and summer activities. Admissions teams want to get to know the students, their passions, social skills, versatility and level of confidence, and so they are looking to the essay for the student's humanity and personality. They also want to learn about the student's character. Your opening few sentences are key.

The Top 10 Reasons Students Cannot Cite or Rely On Wikipedia 10. You must never fully rely on any one source for important information. Everyone makes mistakes. All scholarly journals and newspapers contain “corrections” sections in which they acknowledge errors in their prior work. And even the most neutral writer is sometimes guilty of not being fully objective. Thus, you must take a skeptical approach to everything you read. The focus of your search should be on finding accurate information and forming a full picture of an issue, rather than believing the first thing you read. 9. 8. In March 2009, Irish student Shane Fitzgerald, who was conducting research on the Internet and globalization of information, posted a fake quotation on the Wikipedia article about recently deceased French composer Maurice Jarre. Fitzgerald was startled to learn that several major newspapers picked up the quote and published it in obituaries, confirming his suspicions of the questionable ways in which journalists use Web sites, and Wikipedia, as a reliable source.
