Tanvi Doshi (Denison University, ´17) shares the importance of starting the application process early


What advice would you give future applicants?

I would tell future applicants to start the process of application with a good number of months in hand because I found a number of last minute additional things I had to get done which was stressful. So to be stress free and get everything done on time and properly, I'd say give yourself 4-6 months to get it all together.

What did you find most challenging about the college app process?
The most challenging thing in my opinion were the various essays.

What was your SAT and Subject Tests prep strategy?

I didn't have any particular strategy because there was no good time for me to take the SAT tests. I just practiced whenever I got time.

How did your college list change over time?

My initial college list consisted only of the various colleges I had heard of but then it got narrowed down as I researched each university individually.

What you looking forward to the most about college?

I'm looking forward the most to the large number of clubs and the flexibility to take classes in all sorts of areas and to explore all my areas of interest.

What major/s are you considering?

I'm considering an Econ/Math/Business and finance major or a double major in business and dance.

What excites you about the courses you'll sign up for?

Economics and finance is interesting to me; I've never been a science person. Dance is my passion, it's never just been a hobby. I also would love to take photography courses or maybe a foreign language. I learnt French in school and loved it. That's why I applied to universities in which I could do whatever I wanted alongside my major/s.

What are your plans for summer?

I don't have any specific plans for the summer because the academic board my school follows doesn't give me any time to spare.
