6. College Application Questions


A: What are you doing?

B: I'm filling out my college application.

A: Do you need any help? I applied two years ago.

B: Yes, I do need help. Should I put my ethnicity?

A: It won't be used for or against you. It's really up to you.

B: Also, should I put all of my extracurriculars?

A: Put the ones that you were heavily involved in.

B: Next question, should I put anything in the "additional information" section?

A: If you feel like you need to say something that you didn't mention before, then yes.

B: Can I say I got an A when I really just got a B?

A: What?! Of course not! They will ask for your transcript.

B: Oh, I didn't know that.
