Also, I encourage everyone to visit campus for an interview with someone in Admissions.
1. its just a good experience and can help to validate whether or not SLC is right for you.
2. I do think that admission's direct experience of you can give you an upper edge in the ultimate decision.
Write about something that actually INTERESTS YOU, and it will translate to the admissions office. Also you should fully understand the Sarah Lawrence curriculum before applying, so you know who you're trying to appeal to. Extracurriculars are important.
I visited campus a week before the early decision deadline and then proceeded to complete my entire application in a week to meet the deadline! I think the hardest part was getting people to edit my essays and look over my application before sending it in--which meant I had virtually no time to actually write it. It may seem hasty but I had a gut feeling and had to go with it. I am so glad I did.
