A Great Scholarship Application Tip

Just a quick post to re-post a comment left on this blog in relation to an article I wrote about Scholarships.
This comment came from Pam Whitlock and is a great tip as seniors continue the push for scholarship money.

"My oldest child is a senior this year so we are right in the middle of college and scholarship applications. We were at a seminar last weekend and heard some practical advice. The admissions person said that it is okay to use the same essays and cover letters for different applications but to always (always) make sure you have changed the name of the school in all areas of the essay or letter. He has gotten many letters where the student has mentioned the wrong college or changed it on the first line but not within the body of the letter itself. Proofread, proofread, proofread!"

Thanks to Pam for this comment and tip. I read every comment left here so if you have any tips or tricks to help make Money Smart Students, by all means leave it here, or on our Facebook Fan page.
