Is it common to switch majors in college several times? How many times did you change yours?

This question was asked by a young lady in Southern California who is undecided on her major. She is currently applying to college, but she fears not graduating on time as a product of entering college without a predetermined course of study. #college-major #college-admissions #major #majors...

Out of all academic elements that are considered in the admissions process, courses, grades, test scores, rank, interests, institutional needs, essays, recommendations, and interviews? How important are each of these factors? #college...

Does a students citizenship status influence colleges acceptance decision?

My dream is to get in a top tier college however I am concerned that they wont accept me because I am a temporary resident through the Dream Act. I wanted to see if they would take that into consideration and prefer not to waste their time and effort on me. #college #college-admissions...

What do college admission officers expect to see from an essay?

In my 3rd year English class, my teacher has been focusing on college essays for quite a while. My teacher however, doesn't focus specifically on the format or layout. Rather, he wants my essay to be 'unconventional' and simply out of the ordinary. What is expected of a standard college essay?...
