    How Social Media Affects College Opportunity

    How Social Media Affects College Opportunity

    You can't talk your way out of what you
    behaved yourself into!
     

    Years of hard work can be thrown away in a moments notice with a careless post on Facebook. It's as simple as that and it applies to college. Here's how-

    Don't be mistaken about the college admissions and scholarship process.

    Don't be fooled by what you think the obligations are of the college to carefully review and consider your child's application.

    Don't think for a moment that your $75 application fee warrants their time and attention.

    C
    ollege admission counselors would like to find a reason within 5 minutes to reject or defer an application. They have 3 immediate sources-

    1- they go straight to the GPA and SAT's/ ACT's
    2- they go straight to the application essay
    3- they go straight to Facebook

    Each source is accessible within 5 minutes and each can by itself be cause for denial or deferral. In fact, over 40% of admission counselors recently surveyed indicated they immediately look at the student's Facebook.

    A student's GPA and SAT/ ACT scores represent years of hard work. Their essay can represent hours of diligent work. A Facebook post can represent a moment of carelessness or irresponsibility. A student's real self can be exposed in social media. Once exposed, there is no talking their way out of it! And colleges will not risk their reputation on those students, big GPA or not.

    # 10- Work hard to create the image you desire in all the ways we've discussed here in this series; protect it by making good decisions, and don't risk it on social media; people are watching.

    It's the # 1 Differentiating Factor

    It's the # 1 Differentiating Factor

    Colleges report that 75% of applicants meet the academic standard for admissions acceptance.

    However, few colleges accept that high of percentage, so what do they do to differentiate amongst the academic qualifiers?

    This entire series has been dedicated to answering that question. We have given you 8 great and valuable tips on winning admissions and earning scholarships. We saved the biggest hit for # 9, and the most important one for # 10.

    Our CollegeLogic students create Blog Sites and post to them on issues related to their interest in college studies. They research and post published articles for commenting on them. Doing this builds knowledge and awareness in their studies of interest while serving to build their brand. This is powerful! 

    Having a Blog Site related to their interests in college studies is the top differentiating and distinguishing factor for enhancing applicant credentials. And we just might be the only college-advising company to offer it. Here is one of our great student's Blog Site, a 2019 graduate- AJ's Investment Studies

    Our Top 10 Admission and Scholarship Tip-

    # 9- Create and build a Blog Site relating to the student's interest in college studies; it will amaze and impress college officials beyond belief. 

    That makes perfect College-Logical sense to me, though it's anything but typical. Only about 1 in 25,000 students have a Blog Site. 

    Would you like one for your child? Call us and we'll get you started right away.

    The Importance of SAT's, ACT's

    The Importance of SAT's, ACT's

    Rumor has it that SAT's/ ACT's are not as important any more? 

    That rumor is false and your belief in it will cost you thousands of dollars.

    Sure, dozens of colleges have claimed to be "test-optional". Why have they done that? If you think for a moment that it's because they don't any longer think the tests are relevant, then you've bought into their scheme hook, line, and sinker.

    "But Hans, the colleges have said that!" Oh, does that mean it's true? The colleges also say that their job-placement rate is 90%, and that's certainly false.

    Imagine, going into work and offering a brilliant idea that will generate $400,000 additional income and also improve the company's industry-standing? How will that be received? Promotion maybe, bonus for sure. Am I right?

    If going test-optional yields 5,000 additional applications at $80 per application fee, then it results in $400,000 additional income. It also serves to lower the college application acceptance rate making the college appear to be "more selective". That's a huge win-win!

    And just what do you think is the acceptance rate from the applicant pool who doesn't report SAT/ ACT test results? I'll leave you to ponder that. 

    Our Top 10 Admission and Scholarship Tip-

    # 8- Begin preparation for SAT's or ACT's as early as in 10th grade and make it your priority to maximize test scores; this will greatly improve your acceptance rate and/or maximize scholarship potential.

    That makes perfect College-Logical sense to me, though it's anything but typical. 

    You're still not convinced? Then get our book. We feature this topic and offer significant evidence.

    If you want to win the game, then know the rules

    If you want to win the game, then know the rules

    Who spends $100,000 - $300,000 without knowing how the game is played? 

    Several million parents do every year when it comes to college. That's crazy, but it's what happens when you don't know the rules of the game—COLLEGE. In making an investment of this size, isn't it prudent to know the business of college? As soon as you think that every college is the same, you're sunk.

    Each college a set of stats that drive their business:

    - 4 year graduation rate

    - Freshman drop out rate

    - Application acceptance rate

    - Enrollment conversion rate

    - % need met

    - Average financial award

    - Average scholarship award

    - GPA and SAT standard for acceptance

    Of course, if you attend an information session, they will tell you-

    - "We meet need at 100%"

    - "We have a 90% job placement rate"

    - "We graduate students on time"

    - "You don't need to know what you're major is"

    - "You don't have to report SAT's"

    Do you hear these comments? And just what do you believe? Please don't tell me that you believe the college has a 90% job-placement rate. Please don't tell me that it's acceptable to you for your child to not know their major. If it is, then you're buying in to their 5-year plan. And don't think for a moment that they meet-need at 100%, not at least according to your definition of meeting need.

    I can assure you of this- colleges have a different definition of "Financial Aid" than you do. Wouldn't you like to know what that is?

    Our Top 10 Admission and Scholarship Tip-

    # 7- Know how the college does its business and the stats that drive it to improve your acceptance rate and maximize scholarship potential; do not blindly follow the lead of the college.

    That makes perfect College-Logical sense to me, though it's anything but typical. 

    You're not sure what all of this means? Then get our book- it is a must read! Or call us to further discuss.

    If it's not Complete, then it's Incomplete

    If it's not Complete, then it's Incomplete

    Most students submit incomplete applications. 

    That's crazy, but that's what happens when people rush, or they don't know what they're doing, or they get bad advice. One of those three things happen to the majority of high school students in preparing their college applications. Not our students though! 

    Examples of incomplete applications:

    - "Activity" list is short, activities are not described well

    - "Board Scores" are not self-reported

    - "Essay" is missing a title

    - "Additional Information" is responded to with "No"

    - Responses to "Supplemental Q's" are weak

    - "Senior Class Schedule" is not fully completed

    - "Future Plans" are responded to with "Undecided"

    - "Resume" request is left without attaching one

    Any one or a combination of these items leaves the application incomplete and quickly serves to weaken the applicants prospect for admission acceptance. 

    Our Top 10 Admission and Scholarship Tip-

    # 6- Be certain to complete every box on the college application and respond to every request for information; do not rush through the application as it is easily detected. 

    That makes perfect College-Logical sense to me, though it's anything but typical.
