Admissions

While I think the admissions process at Davidson is normal (Common Application plus Supplement, which asked questions specific to Davidson), I believe the evaluation of the applications is unique because the focus is on the applicant as a whole, not just the numbers (GPA, test scores, etc.) I do wish Davidson offered an optional essay where an applicant could do whatever they want with an 8 x 11.5 inch piece of paper. This would allow the applicant to demonstrate their creativity and exhibit their individuality. One of the other colleges I applied to did that and it was the "essay" that I had the most fun "writing."
