Applying to more than one school is always a good idea. No matter how much of a sure thing your admission is at your top choice, it is important to have a back-up option. Besides, applying to a few schools allows you to continue the decision process. There are also a few easy mistakes that you can avoid. Doing so will save you major headaches later on.
Make sure you:
- Make copies of all applications before you mail them. Things do get lost in the mail and you've likely put a lot of hard work in on it.
- Fill out the entire application. Call the school if you have any questions about how to complete the application.
- Always proofread your applications before mailing them!
- Double check that you are mailing the right school's application in the right envelope. Yes, this has actually happened!
