Nothing like being tossed a softball for a lazy blogger.
Got an email today from someone who has been visiting the blog. Here’s what it said:
I wanted to clarify something because I think the application has changed since your post in 2012. “use all the white space”I am not seeing an additional SAL achievement fieldDid it in fact change, or am I missing it on the application. I’m only seeing a personal statement. Is there any place to explain achievements like on the college common app?
Questions like these are why I apply for the scholarship every year….If you click on the Selection Status tab in the online application website and scroll all the way down you will see the “white space”. It’s now called “Additional Remarks”, but it’s essentially the old “Additional SAL Achievements” field.In the system we use to see an application (CCIMM) that “Additional Remarks” field is displayed as “Additional SAL Achievements”. I’m seeing plenty of applicants who have found this box and have followed my advice.
