Graduate School and Seminary Application Dos and Don'ts

What to do—and not do—while filling out school applications

When it comes to applying for graduate school or seminary, it’s the details that can make or break you. Here are some little but important things to consider as a prospective student:

  • Start the application process one to one-and-a-half years before you plan to enroll.
  • Try to submit all application materials at one time.
  • Have at least two other people read and proofread your application and essay.
  • Ask for reference letters at least six months before your deadline.
  • Keep a copy of everything you submit.
  • Leave blank spaces. Always leave some explanation for missing information.
  • Put off financial aid and scholarship applications until you are accepted somewhere.
  • Write in script. Type as much as possible, and handwrite carefully in print.
  • Apply and let it lie. Follow up with admissions after a couple weeks.
  • Get too creative with personal essays. Be honest, clear and thorough.
