College admission reps have seen it all, from inspiring personal essays to disappointing (and all too common) application mistakes. Lucky for you, one of those same admission VIPs is here to warn you of which mistakes to avoid on your college applications!
The one mistake I often see students making is taking an easier curriculum to elevate their GPA. What they are doing is basically limiting their ability to stretch their academic knowledge, setting them back during the first year of college. Students who take a challenging curriculum will have a better appreciation of the work required in college and adapt better.
