A few days ago, I was able to talk to David, a student from the University of Pennsylvania. He studies Cognitive Science and Computer Science. According to David, good way to make your application stand out is to find your niche.

Getting an outside opinion

For David, he was able to seek the help of a mentor while he was applying to different schools. Though his mentor was not from the universities he was trying to apply to, he still thinks that his mentor’s advice was still valuable.

A mentor can help you sort out what needs to be done during the application process, since it could be really overwhelming for some people to do on their own. They can also help you figure out what to write in your application, and help you adjust to university life even later on.

There are also plenty of resources available online in forums, blogs, and websites. There’s hardly any shortage of information nowadays and it’s very likely that you’re not alone in your situation.

Finding your niche

Create a story using your own experiences. For David, it was tearing his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) from playing basketball that led him to try other things. He joined debate, did volunteer work, and started to write for a newspaper. He capitalized on those experiences to set himself apart in his application.

David says it’s good to find one or two things that make you different from the rest and use this to your advantage. You’re not the only one trying to get into your universities or colleges of choice, so you have to leave an impression on the admissions board. This is especially true when it comes to super competitive schools.

David thinks that your grades, test scores, and activities are the stuff that help you get your foot in the door. Your essay, however, is what will really help you get in the school. It is through the essay they see your dedication, passion, and uniqueness from other applicants.
