Your WOW FACTOR Makes the Difference in College Acceptance

Your WOW FACTOR Makes the Difference in College Acceptance


By Admissions Expert, Dr. Lowe

As college admissions becomes increasingly more competitive, admissions officers and committees look beyond high GPAs, high standardized test scores, ESEs (expensive summer experiences) and seemingly amazing, but generic essays. Dr. Lowe and his team have developed the Wow Factor Admissions Concept.

What’s your personal “wow factor” that will make you stand out and get accepted to the college of your choice? It’s a factor that your admissions officer will look for as well as discuss with the other admissions committee members as to the reason you should be accepted.

What is a personal “wow factor”? Your charisma, confidence, motivation, initial impression, appearance, communication skills, attitude, self-esteem, authenticity, presence, harmony, rhythm and vibe all contribute to your wow factor.  Your wow factor is what makes you different! You must discover and claim ownership of your distinguishing trademark and project yourself in a positive light to a committee of six to ten diverse people to get accepted.

You should be able to describe the personal characteristics that are truly unique, captivating and exciting about you. You should also be able to demonstrate how you will proactively contribute and or passively transfer these characteristics to your roommate, classmates, professors, administrators and the specific school community.

Our admissions strategies help applicants spotlight their unique characteristic(s) that make admissions officers say “Wow! We want this student!”
