College Spotlight: Baldwin-Wallace College
Are you interested in studying opera or do you dream of performing on Broadway? Take a look at Baldwin-Wallace College located in Berea, Ohio (20 minutes southwest of Cleveland). Freshman can pursue the study and performance of opera, and musical education students go into the field. Not only is it a top musical theater program, this small private school is test optional (this means no SAT or ACT scores are required as part of the application!). Note: the music school begins the application and audition process six months before the general B-W application process. Baldwin-Wallace’s campus has many new buildings, including science labs, dorms and the athletic center. To learn more about Baldwin-Wallace click here.

Don’t Let Summer Pass You By!
While many think of the summer as a time to relax, hit the beach and do anything but something academic, summer is the best time to explore potential academic majors and careers. You can learn more about this at your local library. Take advantage of the down time to up your game. You will be glad you did.

Did You Know?
With the number of applicants now using the Common App and the ease of submitting an online application (in the 2010-11 cycle, 1.8 million applications were submitted as of January 1, 2011), admissions officers are looking for more than just an application to make admissions decisions - you need to demonstrate a genuine interest in the school. The best ways to do this include visiting the campus, having a campus interview if offered, attending college fairs and completing the intake form for schools you are really interested in, attending any local events in your area sponsored by the college, and emailing the admissions counselors with specific questions about programs that interest you. These steps can help to differentiate you from the herd of "stealth applicants" who use the Common App as their sole contact with the school.
