A college application is a long and complex process that involves finding an institution that suits your children’s interests, preparing for tests and even for an interview. However, there are a few details that can ruin the effort you put in, and for this reason at The Tutoring Center in Kansas City we would like to share some of the most common college application mistakes. 

Deadlines

Applying to several colleges also means different deadlines to keep track of. Remember that deadlines aren’t flexible, so write the dates on a calendar and keep track of them to send the application on time. 

Proofreading

It’s not rare to find typos, misspellings and grammatical errors in an application, which can show lack of interest or even worse, poor spelling skills. Don’t forget that handwriting can also cause a good or bad impression. 

Essay

Some colleges demand an essay as a part of their admission process. This also means the admission office has to go through thousands of essays, so make sure the essay is answering the right question. Proofreading the writing piece is also very important. 

Parents

Don’t get us wrong, parental support is very important during this process.  However, you should draw the line somewhere. Filling your children’s application or calling the college won’t help. On the contrary, the student should be responsible for doing all the tasks an admission demands. 

These simple mistakes can be the difference between getting accepted to the college your children chose or not, but luckily they can be easily avoided. Time is an important resource during this process and it’s important to use it wisely, so be sure to read this previous post containing useful information manage your time effectively
