Chalk Talk: Fast Apps
College applications are sometimes long and tedious, and students will do just about anything to get them over with. Colleges know this, so some will send out “Fast Apps” to students. Though the name might vary, Fast Apps are short applications which promise quick responses. They rarely require recommendations or even essays; just transcripts and standardized test scores. This means that all the college will consider regarding this applicant is the application, the transcript, and the test scores. Fast Apps can be a real boon to applicants if the applicant is a slam-dunk for that particular college. But a borderline student might be better served by completing a more traditional application in which the supporting materials, like recommendations, essays, etc., can help make the case for that student’s admittance. Often, these supporting materials can make the difference as to whether a student will be accepted, and eliminating them can simply mean a quick rejection. Waiting a little while longer for an answer might mean the difference between getting in or being rejected.
