Chalk Talk: Thank You Notes
One aspect of the college application process that students often neglect is the personal contact. Much of the applicant’s true mission with the college process is to differentiate him/herself from other applicants. An easy way to do this is to keep in contact with college admissions representatives. After an interview or a campus tour, it’s the easiest thing in the world to send a Thank You Note to your admissions representative. If an applicant has a question about the application, a call or an email can be a good way to reach out and establish contact. Even if a student hasn’t toured or interviewed, establishing contact can be useful. Remember that most colleges assign admissions representatives to cover various geographic regions. These representatives and the regions they cover are usually listed on the university’s website along with contact information. Of course, you don’t want to inundate these representatives with phone calls and emails, and your notes or calls should be brief.
