He Who Guards His Tongue

College Interviews, Word Choice in College Essays, University Interviews

Be mindful of your words in the highly selective college admissions process. Especially on interviews.

It is imperative in the college admissions process (and in life) that students think before they speak because once the words are spoken, even an apology can’t take them back. If before you write anything you read it over several times, checking your grammar, spelling, punctuation and certainly your tone, you need to apply a similar procedure in oral communication during college interviews, interactions with teachers and guidance counselors, and communications with college admissions counselors. In the college admissions process and in life, people judge your character on how you express yourself. When you take the second to weigh your words, you can gain the respect and admiration of your peers and elders and avoid the pitfalls of saying something you should have never said.
