So you're procrastinator... The good news, so are millions of high school and college students across the country. By all accounts, you're not unique in your inability to get ahead on assignments and more often than not, you'll be "forced" to stay up late either cramming for an exam or attempting to complete a six page paper you were assigned more than a month ago.

While it's been years since I graduated high school back in 2007, my first-hand experience with the college application process remains vivid in my mind. Between the AP courses/tests, taking the SAT/ACT and the pressures to maintain a competitive GPA, the life of an ambitious high schooler is no doubt, stressful.

My name is Daniel Black and I graduated from Claremont McKenna College in May of 2011 as a dual-major in Economics and Government. I was fortunate enough to spend time working as a "Senior Interviewer" for the Admissions Office which provided me with the opportunity to interview a large number of prospective students. I know what colleges look for (and what turns them off), but more importantly, what steps you can take to distinguish yourself from the crowd.

When it comes to back to school shopping for freshman students there's no need to make a list with the obvious items like notebooks, pencils, erasers and pens. You probably have a whole drawer stuffed full of school supplies like those that you can re-use.

Going to college can be expensive, especially after the four or five years it takes you to finish your undergraduate degree. The average American student graduates from college owing $20,000 in debt.

Remember in middle school, when you watched all of those movies about high school and just thought “wow, I’m going to go to high school and be so cool.”But then you got to high school and nobody was waiting for you outside of the church, you never had Saturday detention with five stereotypical kids, and you never took down John Tucker or the Plastics.

Phrases to NEVER Use in An English Essay It is easy to fog the message your essay is trying to put across by using technical terms or fancy words. In reality, these technical terms you're using are probably being overused or used incorrectly, and the fancy words may be inefficient, or may not be real words at all.

Using fewer, simple words will likely make your essay stronger.
