What do you regret? For those of you who already applied...

<p>The title says it all; what do you regret including/not including in your application...</p>

<p>Personally, I regret not including that I'll be a constituent of a WASC visitation team...Sucks, especially because I can't do a darn thing about it.</p>

<p>Nothing. I quadruple checked before I submitted that everythig I wanted to be in there was in there. What happens, happens and is out of my hands. I don't plan on looking back at my application or essays becasue I know I'll just find something to regret, and it will drive me mad until April.</p>

<p>I made a few errors on my applications. I've been frantically sending e-mails informing school of them. Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if it were held against me, so I'm almost expecting a few rejections.</p>

<p>Even if you're at a state of absolutely happiness when you've finished your essays, don't be careless when filling out the rest of the application like entering your scores, address, etc.</p>

<p>Do not procrastinate your essays, I probably wrote eleven half-assed essays right before New Years. Think about them starting junior year!!!!</p>

<p>Don't be obnoxious during your interview. Send thank you notes.</p>

<p>Have everything really organized for your guidance counselor so there will be NO PROBLEMS with receiving your transcript and everything</p>

<p>Read those admissions books like "On writing the college application" and "A is for admission," it really gives you a good perspective on the process</p>

<p>I regret not sending supplemental essays to a few schools. They all ran together in my head and it never really connected until after I sent them that I wasn't sending every essay to every school. I think they'll all get a slightly different picture of me. Hopefully it won't hurt my chances, but we'll see.</p>

<p>****, I never sent a thank you note to my interviewer...</p>

<p>It's been like a month now so he's probably already forgotten that I exist</p>

<p>Haha tapedDuck, I need to do that soon before I'm in the same boat as you.</p>

<p>How bad is it if the "interview thank you" was an email?</p>

<p>It's okay, but I sent some Hallmark E-cards if I didn't know their address</p>

<p>not bad, just that handwritten stands out is unexpected and memorable</p>

<p>No regrets, baby.</p>

<p>i wrote my essays on the 31st, i sent some supplements late, i didn't apply to a school that had already received my scores, i didn't include an "optional" essay or an essay explaining certain extenuating circumstances...</p>

<p>well i forgot to include my PSSA scores for MIT s****** but maybe i can includie it in the mid grade report</p>

<p>caught a few minor errors after applying. shoulda started earlier. and maybe could've organized activities attachment a little better.</p>

<p>ah, well. fingers crossed!</p>

<p>I never turned in my Swarthmore application... I just could not do anymore apps today. Now I'll never know. Kind of sucks.</p>

<p>forgot to mention that i was a finalist in florida swimming 3a state meet.. w/e</p>

<p>Someone want to convince me that Swarthmore sucks anyway?</p>

<p>Really badly wanted to do the box for CALTECH ....been my dream ever since
