Exeter Application

Has anyone found it a bit odd that Exeter doesn't have a place for you to list or extracurriculars? I've been wondering if maybe there was an error and I just didn't get one, because there was no such form in my Application Materials folder. Did anyone else have one, or was it just the one page where you picked two essays to write?

    There is a form called General Information form in the Application Materials folder. You will find the place to list EC's on the back.

    i didnt get one either and i was really worried.
    I did my general information online and i thought i was just requesting the application so I didn't submit all my information.

    I can't remember if I filled out the general information since it was so long ago, so I just printed out the last page from their website and filled it out, with a note that I wasn't sure. I feel more comfortable knowing sure it's there, and maybe having two there than not knowing if it's there.

    They do have an extra curricular recommendation form...
  • prettyckittyprettyckitty Registered User Posts: 1,363 Senior Member
    That's true, and I'm getting that filled out. But that only provides for one of your extracurricular interests; many kids have multiple.

    do you think its better to get a good EC rec from an area where I'm lacking (sports (I only play tennis)) or one from an area where I'm strong with (visual arts).
  • prettyckittyprettyckitty Registered User Posts: 1,363 Senior Member
    If visual arts is your hook, get a rec from that.
  • MsuMsu Registered User Posts: 765 Member
    even if the art teacher doesn't really know me? I only had her for about 2/3 months and shes also the cheerleading coach and only likes very VERY peppy and loud people.
  • prettyckittyprettyckitty Registered User Posts: 1,363 Senior Member
    If the teacher doesn't like you, then you shouldn't get a recomendation, but if visual arts is really your hook, it is probably important. Of course, you can always get multiple personal recs. I am, and I think that since the different people will have very different and specific things to say about me, it's all right.

    Ha i remeber stressing abotu all that stuff... I forgot a small aprt of my applcation for one of the schols (like name and address even though they already ahd it) anyways they called like a week before and were like umm were missing this part of your application.. I was so nervous btu i got in! these things are small and they have a lot of applications to look throgh so missing little things probably wont matter much
