Getting the Most Out of Your JAMP Application

College can be filled with stress, and not knowing how or when to start your JAMP application might seem overwhelming. But don’t fret! Following these useful tips will help you to get the most out of your application.
Tip 1.): Start Early

Giving yourself the asset of time really cannot be understated. Extra time to work on your essays, extra time to get to know your JAMP Faculty Director (JFD) and space to account for deadlines will serve to keep your application as sharp as possible.

Tip 2.): Get to know your JFD

JAMP Faculty Directors (JFD’s) are an invaluable resource for potential applicants. They assist prospective applicants, advise students on their institution’s particular coursework needed to stay within the program’s timeline and will account for one of the required evaluations needed to apply. Visiting with your JFD early and often will not only mean you stay on track for the coursework, but it will also give them a chance to know your story, which might make for a better evaluation. Reach out today!

Tip 3.) Have a Plan

Setting yourself small, manageable goals on a timeline can help reduce some of the stress of applying. A helpful approach might include setting a specific time for gathering supporting documents, while reserving another time to focus on essays. Viewing the application as smaller pieces may help the overall process feel less daunting.

By following these simple steps, you can ensure that you’re ready to really create the best application possible!

The JAMP Application deadline is October 1 at 5 pm.
