Many students approach this process from a point of lacking. They tell me “ I don’t have this…” Or “I wish I had more of that”. You are doing more harm than good by focusing on your deficiencies. I encourage you to highlight that which you have to offer.
There will always be that student who has a stellar GPA, fabulous internships, and all the trimmings of that “Wonder Student”. If that’s not you, so what? It’s not. Now is your opportunity to focus on what you have. Focus on what it is you bring to the table, while leaving room to grow in the areas where you are lacking.
