Chalk Talk: Fast Aps
One of the biggest stresses of applying to colleges is how much work it requires to produce all of the various elements of an application, and then, having to wait so long for a decision. Fast Aps are an attempt to combat this. Not every college offers them, and they’re usually only offered by invitation. Basically, a college contacts interested (or sometimes not interested) students and offers them a shortened application with a quick response. Often, the application fee is waived. The application is shorter and usually requires fewer elements—maybe a short essay is required, but not always, and recommendations might not even be required. Basically, the college is making its decision based on the transcript and standardized test scores.
