The Bottom Line: An Applicant in 250 Characters or Fewer

In a selective admissions process, there are more academically qualified students than there are seats in the class. To differentiate themselves, each applicant submits essays, resumes, and recommendations which are boiled down by an admissions officer into a straightforward summary for the committee. At many institutions, this is generally referred to as “The Bottom Line.” How do pages and pages of credentials become a sentence or two? How do admissions officers build a case and capture a student’s essence succinctly and efficiently? Walk through the evaluation process with us and help your students present the strongest applications possible. This will be a heavily updated presentation compared to the previous two years. ALSO, we will make this an interactive session by using Twitter. Please come with your smart phone, computer, or tablet to interact with the presenters!
