It’s Peak Time for PLAS Appointments – What does that mean for you?

Making PLAS Appointments — A Quick Review

It’s crunch time for many of you as the semester winds down.  And for those of you in the thick of the application process, it is extremely stressful.  At PLAS, our schedules are chock full of personal statement, essay and resume reviews.  Here are some tips to help you get the most out of your meetings with us.

  1. Email us your documents 2 business days in advance! By doing this, you insure that we have time to thoroughly review your personal statement, essay, or resume BEFORE you arrive for your appointment.  This guarantees a much more productive meeting than if you hand us documents as you walk in the door.
  2. Do not send us more than 3 documents for a meeting!  It is virtually impossible to review more than 3 documents in a 30 minute appointment.  Therefore, if you send us more than 3 items, we will only review 3 so don’t do it.  If you have more than 3 documents, set up another appointment to review those documents.
  3. If you cannot make your scheduled appointment time, PLEASE CALL our office to cancel or reschedule!  Because this is our PEAK TIME, when you do not show up for an appointment, you have taken away opportunities for your classmates.  Please be considerate and call the PLAS office if you cannot make your appointment.
