    2. Volunteer in your hometown. Orangeburg has tons of ways to be involved beyond just the college. Dominican College of Blauvelt wants applicants that are also good ambassadors for the school - they want students who will give back to the local community and broader Orangeburg area in general.
    3. Spend your summer doing something that speaks to your values, personal growth, leadership qualities and other less quantifiable characteristics. Dominican College needs to see past your test scores and grades - they need to know that you will be a valuable and contributing member of their community. You are more than grades and test scores - your experiences should demonstrate that.

    Prepare Your Application

    1. Write a stellar essay that shows Dominican College of Blauvelt something they can’t figure out from the other parts of your application. For a detailed guide on writing the best college essay, check this out.
    2. Get teacher recs that speak to your character. If you know what you’re majoring in and include that in your Dominican College app, try to have at least 1 recommendation from a teacher in that department.
