Episode #72: How to Check If You’re Doing “ENOUGH” to Get Accepted Into Your Dream College

When trying to get accepted into your dream college, it can be hard to determine if you are doing too much, or not enough. I wanted to talk about this topic today on the podcast because it’s something we get asked so often by our students. In this episode I’m going to give you 3 ways that you can access whether you are doing enough, and share how to overcome some of the common pitfalls students often face in the college admission process.

TUNE IN BELOW:

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN ABOUT IN THIS EPISODE:

  • What happens when you don’t have a clear idea of what is “enough”
  • Why your emotions will be the biggest indicator you can use to assess whether you are on the right path
  • How you can tell if your extra-curricular activities are too surface level
  • The best (and most efficient) way to highlight who you are to college admissions officers

NOTABLE QUOTES:

If you do not have a clear idea of what is enough, you can go on and on and on doing so many different things, and who knows if this is actually going to make a difference in your application or not?
You don’t want to invest so much time and money into something and then realize that it really didn’t make a difference in your application.
Emotion is the best indicator to assess whether you are heading in the right direction.
If it’s hard to understand why you do what you do, what your mission is and what your purpose is behind it all, then it’s definitely not going to make a difference.
