Does it seem to you that 2022 is moving quickly? The month of May is half over, and Memorial Day in the U.S. (this year on May 30th) is the unofficial kickoff to essay-writing season around here.
Some schools have started to announce things like deadlines and essay questions, and the rest of them are likely to do so quite quickly once we get into June.
The applications themselves may not be released yet, but that’s OK — you can get started on app strategy as soon as a school confirms its essay questions. Those are the most important for the actual work of setting your strategy.
The other important pieces of course are selecting your recommenders — but honestly, you shouldn’t get too far into those decisions until you know what you’re presenting in your strategy… So there’s some chicken-and-egg components going on here.
Are you surprised that these decisions could be so complex?
