2. Your application is briefly looked over
Admissions evaluators at colleges, such as Brown get 12 minutes to look over an applicant's submission and make a decision on the admissibility of the applicant. Make your application short, concise and don't include any information that the college would already have on file.
3. Even outstanding candidates might not make it
Until the dean of admissions starts to shape the class, nothing is final. Students who are moved to "defer" or "wait list" along the way to being admitted may still be accepted. Depending on class size, you could be dropped even if you're a relatively outstanding candidate for the college, so diversify your college selections to help you get into at least one.
4. Getting an interview is an advantage
Applicants who are interviewed have a higher acceptance rate than applicants without one. An interview lets you bring more personality to your application, so take advantage of that. To increase your chances of getting an interview, ask about getting one in your application.
