Advice for high school/transfer students: The admissions essays are very important. Tell your story and be creative. We read thousands of admissions applications every year and if you can make your application stand out by sharing what makes you unique, it will be much easier to give you a positive response. Additionally, proper grammar usage and spelling go a long way!
