Advice College Admissions Officers Give Their Own Kids

Nice article. A few quotes stand out to me:

I don’t really agree with this one. I know one school that is slow to release their supplemental app questions and requirements – both of my kids applied there, and the info wasn’t even available until after Labor Day. Plus, if you have accomplishments in the fall semester, then they aren’t in the app. Sure, you can send an update, but better to have an app that reflects all of your qualifications. I think students should finish testing and visiting before the start of senior year, and have their common app essay drafted for sure. But all apps before Labor Day doesn’t make much sense to me.

I love these two quotes, and think they are really true.
