Almost all college applicants commit the same 'deadly sins' – mistakes that turn the college application process from a breeze into a nightmare. These fundamental errors prevent most applications from being accepted.
New York, New Yorl (PRWEB) January 07, 2013
Getting into college is more challenging now than ever before. The number of competitive high school applicants seeking college admissions has increased over the last decade, resulting in an increased number of applications, more competitive applicant pools, and smaller acceptance ratios. For students looking to get into an ivy-league school, odds of getting in have decreased even further: in 2012, four of the eight ivy-league schools reported record low admission rates.
Due to the increased competition, higher average test scores and inflated GPAs, students are forced to work harder to make their college applications stand out. But according to Anthony-James Green, SAT tutor and college admissions consultant, even the best students make mistakes on college applications that can hurt their chances of admission.
“Almost all college applicants commit the same 'deadly sins' – mistakes that turn the college application process from a breeze into a nightmare,” says Green, “These fundamental errors prevent most applications from being accepted.”
In response to the demand for college application advice, Green has released a free guide called “The 7 Deadly Sins of College Applications.” The guide addresses the common mistakes on college applications and offers students advice on how to improve their chances of getting into the program of their choice. The guide is available at the following address:
“I’ve worked with the best college consultants in the industry to provide parents and students with a comprehensive guide on how to avoid the most common mistakes in the college application process. By the time you’re finished reading this guide, you’ll know how to put together a better college application than 99% of the students you’re competing against.”
The guide also includes information on when to start thinking about the college application process, how to research and pick the right schools, and how to construct an application to differentiate it from those of other applicants.
“Colleges eliminate most applications before they’re ever even reviewed based purely on grades and test scores. If you can improve those, great. If not, then use the additional steps provided in the guide to put together a better application and improve your odds of acceptance.”
Green has helped his students get into ivy-league schools such as Harvard, Yale, Stanford, Columbia, Princeton, and Duke. In addition to improving test scores through one-on-one tutoring and the 90 Day SAT Prescription, Green also produces free webinars, tutorials and guides for parents and students on how to improve SAT scores and college applications.
