who would be reading your application
We are hoping to get the true story of you – not of someone else. We want to know what excites you, what your hopes are, and how you’ve grown from any struggles you’ve had/ The essay is an opportunity for you to directly share information about yourself, but it’s one element of the application, which we use to understand your story.
Scores, grades, and activities may be expressions of you, but we know they’re not all there is to you. You may feel like they show off what you are capable of, or they might not. There are many ways to show colleges who you are – with grades, test scores, and extracurriculars being important – but you can also use other parts of the application, like short answers, the essay, or the “additional information” section to tell or show us what you’re capable of. Remember, too, that many colleges are now test optional, including Goucher College.
You can apply to quite a few, but we wouldn’t recommend applying to more than eight. You’ll want to work with your college counselor, family, and/or mentors to find schools that would be a fit for you and have a good balance of options.
You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
