Filling out a college application is an important part of the admission process. Some points that students must remember before doing the application forms are that they are not completed solely by the students. These forms need at least one recommendation from a teacher, counselor or other adult and official copies of test scores need to be sent to the college from the testing authority. Also, students must remember that they must allow enough time to the other people involved in the process to carry out their work and they must have enough time to review the forms to make sure all information and documents are included and submit it to the college by mail before the deadline.

Steps to Fill Out College Application Form

The general steps to start filling out a college application form include writing clearly and using block letters, keeping a photocopy of the application and sending it to the proper address. There are other important sections in a college application form that are to be filled out by the candidate.

1. Usually, the first section comprises of the personal information. Personal information includes the student’s name, place of birth and nationality, mailing and permanent addresses (when the two are different) and e-mail address.

2. The next section generally covers the major for which you wish to get admission. This can only include the subjects taught in the university. You need to include which session you want to start (summer, fall or spring).

3. The next section covers your educational details. If you are enrolled in any college or university program, you need to include it in the application form. Also the last college and degree program you have been enrolled in must be included in the application form as well as if you have received any diploma or certificate and honors you have received.

4. If you have a nationality that is not American, a member of the European Union or European Economic Area, you must pass the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) with a minimum score of 550 points (on the paper version) or 213 points (on the computer version).

5. The next requirement is the application essay. You need to write it on a separate sheet of paper. This essay often requests that you state the reasons you have chosen your desired program but some schools will give a list of topics that you can choose from. Generally, the essay is supposed to be 800-1200 words.

6. The following section covers the letters of recommendation which must be included with the application form.

7. The last section is the signature. You must not forget to sign your application and put the proper date on it.

When you are nearing the end of your high school days, you start thinking about getting admission to a reputable college. The admission process is not easy and involves handling quite a large number of responsibilities. Among these responsibilities lies an important one: writing the college Application Letter. This letter has to impress the admissions council and improve your chances to get admission in college. Writing a college application letter involves detailing your dreams and talents. It can also be considered an exchange of ideas between you and your future place of study.

Writing Early

You need to start writing early because the sooner you start, the more chances you have to make corrections and add specific details to boost your credibility. The application letter is the key to get admission in a reputable college. This letter should be impressive enough to influence the reviewer and let you get selected for an interview.

Interest in the College

When you are writing the college application letter, you must write statements that will describe the reasons you have chosen that particular college. Do not be unnecessarily wordy. Rather state honestly which factors attracted you the most and helped you choose the college. Admission officials are highly intellectual and will catch on to your level of interest through the application letter. There should not be redundant information in the application letter as it will make the application letter lengthy and uninteresting.

Interest and Hobbies

As you are seeking admission in an educational institution it is not necessary to reflect all your educational interests in your application letter. If you are interested in fields other than academic ones, you must refer to them in your college application. If the college has a good theater group or sports team and you are interested in these fields you can include them also. Write about your hobbies and your interest in doing social improvement. These will be added advantages and smooth your chances of getting admission.

Uniqueness of the Application

As there are a number of applications for admission officials to check, they usually search for the uniqueness of the application. For that you can seek help from your counselor. The college will want to know how you are going to prove yourself beneficial for the college. You need to state these points explicitly; include your all of your strengths and none of your weaknesses. You might include a special feature of yours and how that can be what the college needs. You may be a good candidate but you must remember that there will be thousands of students applying like you. So, your main concern must be in making your college application completely unique.

Dear Mr./Ms. Last Name:

I am writing in reply to the classified ad seeking to fill the position of Graduate Student Advisor for the Master of Arts in Liberal Studies degree program.

I have been awarded the degree of Master of Arts from XXXX so I understand the need for academic advisement and program planning in a nontraditional higher education environment. I have also experienced, first-hand, the comforting effect of being able to contact an adviser who genuinely cares for the success of students.

During my career as an electrician I was elected Chairman of the Executive Board which sat as the union’s representatives to the apprenticeship advisory board. In this capacity I was able to be an effective advisor to apprentices who were experiencing scholastic problems which threatened their future in the industry; especially to older apprentices who were seeking a Career change and had problems adjusting to the obligations of work, school and family life.

I believe my educational background in nontraditional post-graduate education and my work related duties of counseling and advising students enrolled in learning programs qualifies me for consideration for the position of Graduate Student Advisor. I look forward to discussing how my skills can be of value to XXX as it prepares to move into the new millennium.
