How I got in to Georgia Tech: FAQ
Tour GuideMelanie Weaver
Everyone has their own tips and tricks for a "perfect" college application. However, in my opinion, there is no such thing as a "perfect" application. Everyone is unique with their own talents and academic standings. To achieve a "perfect" application, you must simply showcase yourself. Watch this video for some more specific advice as to how I got in to Georgia Tech.
The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
We're the last F A Q. It is about the application process, so I'm gonna give you a few tips about applying in general and in a few tips about tech and applying and getting accepted into tech. So one thing that I find to be very important in the application process is to start early. When I was applying, I had all of my applications done before I started my senior year of high school. Granted, that's abnormal, especially because our high school starts late like most people will start, like right when the common app gets released. Get on it, it'll make your life so much easier and so much less stressful. If you can get your APS done before most people dio, another thing that is very important would be Get your essays. Proofread. I was with those people who I was like, Oh no, I'm a good writer. I don't need people to look at what I've done. It's my writing, but I do slightly regret it and that I didn't get most of my things. Pretty friends and the ones that I did get proofread. We're a lot better and looking back. So just get all your many essays, short answers, full essays. Get them proofread by at least one person that you trust because you won't notice things that other people would notice. If you lie on your application, it will be found out. I don't know what the consequences are for that because I did not lie on mine. If you lie on their application, maybe maybe they don't find out. Then once you get to that college, if you choose to go there, you won't be who they thought you were. He may not be ableto get through the academic rigor if you are percent by your GPS. So my force piece of advice would be apply. Especially if you're unsure at the time of the application process, where you want to go applied as many schools as you can. I personally applied to ten ten different schools, and that's a bit much. Yes, but I knew people who only applied to schools, and if they hadn't gotten into one of those two schools, they just be S O L. And my fifth and last piece of advice would be Have your applications like varied. Make sure you have your safe school, preferably to save schools and then have your slight reach, but not really a reach school where it's like I'm looking, probably get into these. Then I'll apply to a reach school, even if you think there's no way I can get into that school, whether it's academically a reach school athletically, a reach school or musically a reach school apply to reach schools because you never know what's gonna happen. You never know if you'll get in because odds are you will and now for Tech. Specifically, I would recommend to start thinking about it early, because Tech is a very difficult school and we're getting more and more difficult to be accepted to. You have to show that you have the credentials to get in here. One very important thing about tech is that you can't just be a brain. You have to have other things to you have to be involved, and you have to be unique. So prove that in your application, talk about your involvements around your high school. Talk about the unique things that you've done told about any volunteer service that you've done, and also you want to be unique in all applications, not just tack. This is also very important to tell you in your college essay. You don't just want to be like, oh, this one time I failed and then I studied, so I did better talk about something weird. Like the general one for the common app I talked about embracing awkward moments. Be weird because you may not get a ninja with a school. I didn't interview for Tech, but you want to be able to show your personality through your application. Yeah, that's it for my advice or an application again.
