Questbridge application essays mba - Patrick Healy Fellows
Some advantages of applying to QB NCM even if you don't intend to rank colleges are: 1) being a QB finalist can be listed as a national award on college or other scholarship applications 2) it identifies you as a high achieving low income student which is a group currently being recruited by selective colleges -- a desirable profile to highlight on those applications 3) it gives you the opportunity to forward your QB app to any colleges which accept just the QB app and not have to submit anything else for those schools in the event you aren't accepted ED to your first choice school 4) the value of having your essays (and a complete college application) done very early cannot be emphasized enough, as anyone who's been through the process will tell you 5) the QB community is an immensely supportive peer group - there are facebook and other social media communities, as well as face to face meetings at the conferences and fly-ins. You will have access to lots of resources and information as well as emotional and moral support. Many QB applicants say that the best part of the process is becoming friends with like-minded peers who have similar life experiences, understand each other's struggles etc. QB scholars have a support network on their campuses, including things like having a budget for Thanksgiving dinner for "Questies" who can't get home for the holiday etc. Even applicants who aren't finalists often stay connected with their Questbridge friends and some even mentor the next year's group of juniors 6) becoming acquainted with QB partner schools which you may not have heard of or not know much about. All the QB colleges are outstanding selective schools from all over the US, although only a handful have the name/'brand' recognition. Many QB scholars, matched or not, say that they found their dream school through QB, and often it was not a school they knew or were interested in before the NCM process.
