College: Outbound

Candy shows you how to pursue higher education somewhere over the rainbow-and find the pot of gold at the end!

The thought of living out your formative years in a faraway land is daunting yet exhilarating. But not just anyone can live up to the task at hand; it takes someone with daring. If you think you have enough guts to live alone abroad, then read on!

Boost Your Application
Wow the admissions office with your impressive papers!

The Resumé: While your academic track record is certainly important, your extra-curricular activities factor just as much. This sheet of paper tells the admissions officers what kind of person you are, what you are interested in, and what you are passionate about. New York University, for example, encourages proofs of leadership rather than a "long laundry list" of activities, so don't forget to mention you're class president.

The Essay: "The ssay is an opportunity, not an ordeal," says Carol Wheatley, the director of admissions at Wesleyan University. The essay is the heart of your college application, revealing most about you: what is important to you and what kind of person you are. Does the college value daring? Talk about how you rallied for a cause! Essays are a testament to your creativity. Flaunt what you've got and reach for the stars. Just don't forget to proofread. Even the slightest typographical error betrays your carelessness—that's how revealing the essay is.
