“I can’t wait to write the short answers for my college applications,” said no one, ever.

In fact, the thought of having to drum up a slew of thoughtful responses, after working so hard to perfect your personal statement, can be annoying at best and unbearable at worst, causing TONS of students to treat their short answers as afterthoughts. 

That’s really why so many end up submitting “empty” responses instead of meaningful ones; not because they don’t care about the outcome of their applications, but because they’re tired. And not even sure what they should be writing about exactly.

(PRO TIP: You can tell you have an “empty” response on your hands if it contains a bunch of listed reasons or sounds like the college’s brochure instead of you!)
