Question by Krystina: What can I do to be more attractive on my college application?
I have a high GPA and high test scores. I’m in many AP classes and in “double-honors” math. I’m a cheerleader and I scuba-dive. I’m a model. I’m 100% fluent in French and I’ve been taking Spanish classes for a while. I went on a year long student exchange in France. What kind of summer job and volunteering opportunities should I look for? Also, any other suggestions for how I could pump some life into my college application?

The one thing that colleges like is if you have been volunteering at a facility for over a year and a half. That way they see that your dedicated to helping out whatever your helping out with.

  1. ASUGRAD says:

    Your background is impressive – a multi-disciplined, non-traditional applicant. As long as you get high SAT or ACT scores, you should be very strong in many competitive applicant pools. The key is to apply for “non-traditional” options to increase your chances.

    I am an engineer and observed that most courses have very few females. This gender disparity means that if you apply as an engineer or “traditionally-male” major then your odds of acceptance are much higher mainly because you will not be competing with that many female applicants. On the other hand, if you apply in “traditionally-female” majors like writing, social sciences, or business accounting, then admission is much harder. But with your multi-disciplined background you can probably still get in.

    In addition, the linguistic studies can give other options. Perhaps you can apply as a French major and emphasize that background. The interest in other cultures and languages is very strong. Neurologically, you are literally using more areas of your brain more efficiently in the central nervous system when you choose to be multi-lingual at a young age. I know this because I am bilingual and studied neurophysiology with medical imaging and math models of the brain.

    I’d recommend “non-traditional” schools and “non-traditional” majors to enhance probability of acceptance and financial aid at elite schools:

    Cal Tech (engineering, science or applied math)
    MIT (engineering, science or appliedmath)
    Ivy League Schools (linguistics)

    But also try these for added dimensions of opportunities at both private and public universities. Remember that public ivy schools are also excellent choices and far less expensive, especially if one is in your state. These majors below are in high demand. Examples of “public ivies” include Cal-Berkeley, Texas, Michigan, Florida, Virginia, Wisconsin, UW at Seattle, UCLA, etc.

    medical informatics
    biomedical engineering
    healthcare administration
    medical billing
    public health
    medical physics
    radiology (undergrad)
    health economics

    Ultimately, your college and major should be able to get you a job that pays well with good stability. Hypothetically, if there were a recession in the year of your graduation, what majors would be in demand? Ask an experienced counselor, google “jobs in recession” or “top ten jobs”, or talk to alumni. If a college student who graduated with honors is unemployed, then find out why.

    Check these job sites and your major. Would companies hire someone with the major you choose?

    Good luck. The only “impediment” in your case may be the temptation to “rush into marriage.” As a bright, athletic woman who is intelligent and a cheerleader, the opportunity to get “married too soon” is a major risk. I’ve seen beautiful, intelligent sorority women rush into marriage only to get divorced 5-10 years later. Divorce rates are highest for those under 25. Beware of that statistic.
