Applying to College is More Complicated Than It Used to Be
Gone are the days of typed essays and paper applications. For better or worse, the college application process is predominantly online, which means a lot of complex portals, automated responses, and follow-up emails.
Most Colleges Require Multiple Supplemental Essays
Unfortunately, parents often mistakenly assume that college applications only require one essay. The truth is that the majority of schools ask students to submit a main essay, several supplemental essays of varying lengths, activity descriptions, and, in some cases, a resume.
Vested Academics makes the College Application & Essay processes less stressful for students and families. Here’s how . . .
