Have you heard the myth about students need to be well-rounded student for college admissions? It is just that, a myth. In terms of admissions, it is better to be a ‘T-Shaped’.
College admission is changing as colleges and universities are becoming more selective in the types of students they take in. As adults, we believed the secret recipe of students receiving admissions into student’s preferred college includes a nice mix of community service, school clubs, athletics, and sprinkled in a few advanced honors or college courses, like Advanced Placement or dual-enrollment. Unfortunately, the problem with a student being well-rounded is they usually lack focus or a specialized skill set.
