Today I am bringing you how I got into my dream school of you requested this video and I just wanted to make it because a year ago today, I wanted to transfer into what has always been my dream school. So fellow friends under in the same position I was in Here is my experience of how to get into your dream school S o. I currently go to the University of Texas at Austin, which is a very competitive school to get into, depending on what major you are applying for as well and increase the competitiveness transferring. If you are a high school student, little back story is, I really want to go here. So they go to a different school and Sander our program, and then if you do well there, you can get in. I still want that university experience, which I highly recommend. Anyone that doesn't get into their dream school still try to go to a university so that you can have the full college experience. Anyway, I ended up going to Texas Tech and ask Texas Tech was a great experience for me at that time. It wasn't where I want to be my whole college experience. So about the end of freshman year, my brother suggested that I applied to the University of Texas at Austin. You send your transcript from all the colonies you've attended and also all the high schools that you've attended now, down of the things that you can actually control. I'm not washed out now, so just make sure your A, C t and your S A T scores there well enough. If they aren't that great than trying to make up for it in every other part of the application, So big thing is the apply Texas, basically everyone that applies to Texas schoolhouse to go through, apply Texas and you need to fill out your apply Texas application as extensively as you. Do it, then everything that is not on the apply Texas put it on a college resume. So your college guys may well be an extended resume, so it can be as along as you can make it. Work experience, awards honors all the high schools I attended in my G p a. So then within each category and every single thing you let's make it sound as prestigious as you can. They want to see that you are a good citizen as well. Make sure you put honey allergy volunteered, and I had over 130 hours of volunteer service. Now, depending on what major you are applying for at your dream school trying to have work experience in that field, for example, I am an advertising student. You have a photographer advertising company, like how much had on happy but all of your hobbies that you enjoy doing on there as well. So a lot of the things that I was doing outside of work and outside of school were things that apply to my major in a creative sense. Now, what's really important for your college essays So they can look at your transcript and see your grace taken a look at your resume and see everything you've done outside of school your S a t scores to see how well you test. Thanks more anyway, because hopefully you out a basic education. I was so focused on using big words that didn't come naturally to me to sound smarter in my essays when I applied as a freshman. Like say, why you didn't know that four point of GDP, eh? Because you had to work 20 hours a week to make ends me or because you are responsible for taking care of your little brothers and sisters. I always making sure school was my number one priority. In my reason, videos because I was such a hermit focused on doing school, doing X curricular activities and outside of work projects. In order to build my resume and to get into UT and especially, you have to work while you're at school. Bust your bottom like this school has the best of the best people, and I'm sure whatever your dream school is does too. So if you want to stand out, you're gonna have to work harder. I mean, it was so hard for me sometimes to see my friends kind of just getting to do whatever they wanted and me being so hard on myself. So if that means you have to work 40 hours a week and then take 15 hours at school and sleep a little less. It's worth it, it's Another important thing is to have recommendation letters. Since I worked for the advertising company, I had the head of the community write a recommendation letter for me, and I also had my professor who was a communications professor who recommended me for a marketing competition. Whether it is an old bus, you now a really important thing on one of my friends actually apply duty and found out when it was too late that they never received his transcript. So thanks to him, I called both colleges that I had hours from, and I called them both until you t told me that they received my transcripts. Your dream school in general Not gonna hunt him down. So you need to be the middleman, making sure that things are working out on your favorite. I wish this video was out there for me to watch back when I was in this position a year ago today I pinch myself every day, but it's a really great feeling to see your hard work pay off my last tip is stay patient. So if you are not aware of the law of attraction is I definitely believe it had a huge part in me ending up where I wanted to be.
