It's ⚠️ TIME TO BE REAL ⚠️ in your college application! It turns out you can use humor and show your personality in your application and we'll tell you how! In this episode, Elena and Tom (from College Essay Guy Team and former college admissions officer) talk about the secret things you're probably worrying too much about and the things you don't want to forget in your college apps.

What are the kinds of Don't Sweat It's and Don't Forget It's we talk about? Here's a preview:

😰 Don't Sweat It:

  • Putting too much information in your Activities Section
  • Sounding "smart enough" in your writing
  • Getting letters of recommendation from exactly 1 STEM teacher, 1 non-STEM teacher (listen to find out why!)

🧐 Don't Forget It:
