Long the main stay for keeping up to date 24/7 with their friends, social media is now helping applicants earn admission to their dream colleges. ZeeMee, a social media site dedicated exclusively to undergraduate and graduate school admissions, allows applicants to create a free profile where they can post a video, photos, awards, and other information to show their personality and bring their application to life. Applicants can share their profile with admissions officers by putting a link to it in their college applications. ZeeMee is a great opportunity for applicants to stand out from a sea of highly qualified applications and show their unique personality, interests, and goals.
Parents, let this also serve as a reminder to ensure your child’s social media profiles are private and present her in a positive light. Admissions officers are known to peruse applicant’s Facebook profiles. Should one find any posts or pictures that are inconsistent with a college’s expectations of its incoming class, it could harm your child’s odds of admission.
