What These Butler Freshmen Wished They Would Have Known During the Application Process

Between the college application process (which is different for every college or university you apply to) and the day you move into your dorm, people will tell you a lot of things about what college is really like. Every school is unique and is experienced differently by each individual. That’s why some of our current freshmen wanted to share a few application tips and what they wished they would have known about the application process with you:

  • Ask a teacher to read over your essays, in my experience they were more then willing to do this and extremely helpful! – Abby
  • Maintain your grades during senior year. It is not a time to slack off. I know of a few people who decided to coast during their senior year and weren’t able to get into the college of their choice. -Justin
  • Get your applications done early and keep track of important dates! This made senior year so much better because I had free time and everyone else was worrying about essays and applications. -Brandon
  • Don’t wait until April to start looking for outside scholarships. There is so much money to be had out there, and you can’t wait for it to come to you.
  • Don’t be afraid to ask for help! Parents and Teachers can be very helpful, especially when it comes essay time. -Laura
  • Visit every campus you might be interested in attending. After all, you’ll be there for four years so you want to make sure that you like it! -Katie
