Online Course Description

An admissions tutor may have ten applications for each place. If there are ten places, that means 100 applications. He or she wants to get that number pared down to twenty or so as quickly as possible, spending minute or two at the most on each during a preliminary scan. If your application fails to make the cut, it will not be looked at again.This class is in two parts. In the first part we will build on the literature review. I will guide you in realistic targeting of suitable places and in writing an application that will grab the attention of admission tutors. In the second part, I will review what you have written. We don't write applications, we get acceptances..
