Top 10 Tips for College Admissions Essays - Essay Writing Center
Hi Lynn, I’m a highschool senior (well I technically start in September) and I received a priority application from Gordon College. I visited Gordon a few weeks ago and also spoke to an admissions counselor while I was there who recommended me for their Clarendon scholars program. The priority application said I don’t have to pay an application fee, I get notified within 2 weeks of their decision, and that there is no essay requirement. Is this just another scheme? I’m actually a highly qualified student in terms of how my scores and gpa compare to the average at Gordon, so should I take up this offer?

To learn about ways that you can get involved through out the year, check out our volunteer opportunities below.
College fairs are events organized by high schools, school districts, regional organizations or the national organizations. These groups will invite college and university representatives to meet with students and families to discuss information about admissions, academic programs, etc. Our office coordinates participation in college fairs, but we rely on Alumni Admissions Volunteers to represent RIT at events across the country. College Fairs are held September though November and April through May.
Each year, the Admissions Office reviews demographic and market information to determine which areas RIT should hold student receptions for prospective students. The purpose of this event is to educate prospective students early about RIT and to encourage them to apply.
These receptions are held in fall and spring. The target population is high school juniors/rising seniors. Alumni volunteers attend the receptions to assist staff with check-in and participate in a Q&A panel. There is also a student Q&A panel during the event.
Alumni Chapters often hold a student send-off for incoming freshmen. We currently hold regional send-off events in Boston, NYC, Philly, Washington D.C., and selected other metropolitan areas.
If your alumni group is interested in holding a student send-off, please contact the Alumni Admissions Volunteer Program Coordinator.
Alumni letters of recommendation, as is true with counselor and teacher recommendations have the greatest impact in assisting the admissions staff in gaining a deeper knowledge of the candidate. In the application reading process, there are many factors taken into consideration on top of academic testing, GPA, school and extracurricular activities, leadership and essays. Letters of recommendation that speak to character or behavior are the most beneficial.
Personal interviews are currently not required for admission to RIT, but are a great opportunity for applicants to meet with an admissions representative locally. Hometown Interviews are conducted by admission staff and trained Alumni across the country and will be approximately a half hour long in a public location. Interviews are available for high school seniors September-November and are coordinated by individual student requests.
