Honors on apps

Postby Climber80 » Sat Oct 15, 2011 2:22 pm

Will someone please edit my "Honors" section on my application? it has alot of redundancies, i feel, but dont know how to make more concise. Also I'm not allowed to use any apostrophe's on the app or colons on the app. thank you.

Don't edit out any of the information. You have addressed the question asked directly and didn't list the same award more than once.

Should be "Dean's List" not Deans list

The one comment I have is regarding PBK. Isn't it limited to 10% of graduating class, not 1%? Admission officers will likely be familiar with PBK, so you want to have correct information there
