Ann.without.an.e Posted March 26, 2017 Share Posted March 26, 2017 (edited) Just some rambling thoughts. I would love to see what ya'll did. Right after dd submitted all of her applications, a friend told me that her ds did all sorts of extra stuff. He attached a resume because he had too many things to fit on CA, he sent in extra teacher recs, and he uploaded a writing portfolio on to the website or sent it to the admissions office. I'll admit, I panicked. I was a little concerned that she should have added "more". DD only filled out what was available on the Common App. She didn't attach additional activities or awards that wouldn't fit. She simply put her highest priority items on the CA and left off the other stuff. She only requested 2 teacher recs. That was it. No more. When I mentioned my friend to dd she said, "nope, I read it somewhere...the thicker the file, the thicker the child." Did you guys add stuff? So far, dd is in everywhere she has applied either with merit aid or she is in the running for a merit scholarship. It obviously didn't hurt her at all. I panicked for nothing. Dd was right, as usual. It made me wonder if it is common practice to do "more"? Edited March 26, 2017 by Attolia Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
