Applying to College
Make Your Application Stand Out!
As Colleges are working harder to have a more holistic approach to their admission process, character and life skills have become an increasingly important part of the college admission process. In addition to academic strength, athletic or artistic talent, and/or community service efforts, colleges are working to figure out ways to assess character and life skills such as leadership, critical thinking, creativity, and more all within the admission process.
How can LifeStream help?
The college application process can feel overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be! Preparation is critical to success, and LifeStream is here to help. Use a LifeStream Digital Memory Box® to save your best academic work, projects, community service, athletic and/or artistic talent, employment and more, and you can have up to 50% of your application complete before you even start it! A LifeStream Digital Memory Box will give you the baseline to:
- Fill out the activities section of your college application
- Figure out what you want to say in your personal statement/essay
- Build a student resume
- Prepare for an interview
- … And tell your story throughout the application process
Plus, you can create a custom LifeStream portfolio to supplement your application in 2 easy steps! According to The National Center for Fair and Open Testing, more than 1,300 accredited colleges and universities are test-optional. ALL of these colleges and universities are looking for a student portfolio – not just for “acceptances” but to determine scholarships too! With LifeStream, there’s no limit to the number of custom LifeStream portfolios you can create. We understand you may have to show different “views” of yourself depending on where you are applying and/or who you are sending your portfolio. Plus, you still have your digital media available in your digital memory box after you apply!
After your free trial, LifeStream Digital Memory Box Accounts start at only $19.95/year for the family! Click here to see all LifeStream Account types.
