Survey

Please take a quick college admissions survey

Around this time last year, I gave a short survey to a group of high school seniors I was talking with. Their answers were insightful and helped our discussion.

This year, I’d like to open up the survey to all high school students.

Please click here to take the survey. It should only take about five minutes, and it’s completely anonymous.

I’ll add parent and educator surveys soon, but for now this one is only for high school students. I’ll share the responses in October.

Thanks! Please send this to someone who would like to take the survey, or share it on your social networks.

Apply with Sanity doesn’t have ads or annoying pop-ups. It doesn’t share user data, sell user data, or even track personal data. It doesn’t do anything to “monetize” you. You’re nothing but a reader to me, and that means everything to me.

Results from my student survey

Results from my student survey

Last week I spent two days talking to seniors at Carnegie Vanguard High School during their English class. We talked about what colleges are looking for in applicants, how the different parts of an application work together, and how colleges actually process all those applications. The students also had tons of really great questions.

But first, I had some questions for them. Before our talk, I asked them to fill out a quick questionnaire. Here are the questions I asked and some comments on their responses. If you’re working with college-bound students—either in a school setting, as a parent, or because you are a college-bound student yourself—this may be useful for you.
