Hopefully the act of completing this Brag Sheet gives you a chance to reflect positively on your growth and to clarify what matters to you. Knowing what you value is an important and empowering tool to hold onto throughout the college process. By focusing on what you know you want, you are more likely to engage with school reps confidently and authentically; viewing visits and meetings as a way to test whether or not a school’s values and programs match up with your interests and ambitions. And whether you are hoping to get into a music conservatory, a liberal arts college, or an Ivy, they all want to get to know the real you. There is no magic formula or particular thing you can do to be accepted at a specific school, but being self-assured and genuine is the best crack at magic you will get.
