5 Application Tips

With the early decision deadline quickly approaching, we thought there might be some questions about the application. Here are the “Top 5 Application Tips” from our Recruitment and Admissions Teams:

  1. APPLY EARLY: The earlier the better. The sooner you submit your application, the sooner you can begin the admissions process.
  2. SHOW YOUR PASSION: City Year is looking for people who are passionate about changing the world. Let you passion shine through in your essays.
  3. DON’T WAIT ON YOUR RECOMMENDERS: Your recommenders have up to five business days after the advertised deadline to submit his or her recommendation.
  4. SEND IN YOUR RESUME: While a resume is not required as part of the City Year application, it never hurts to provide us with additional information.
  5. DON’T FORGET TO CLICK SUBMIT: In order to complete your application you must click the submit button on the last page.
