If the application had one prompt

Students, imagine for a moment your college applications consisted of only one prompt:

Submit letters of recommendation, as many as you’d like, from people who can tell us how you helped, supported, encouraged, or otherwise positively impacted them and their lives during your high school years. Bear in mind that when we read these letters, specific examples tend to resonate more than vague generalities do.

If you could put together a strong application with just that one prompt, you’d have a lot to show for how you spent your time in high school (and how others were impacted by it). And you’d likely have plenty of compelling examples to share on any college’s application.
