Not just humor, but the overall tone of your application essay is remarkably important. It's also difficult to get right. When you are asked to write about your accomplishments, those 750 words on how great you are can make you sound like a braggart. Be careful to balance your pride in your achievements with humility and generosity towards others. You also want to avoid sounding like a whiner -- use your essay to show off your skills, not to explain the injustices that lead to your low math score or failure to graduate #1 in your class.
Students selected to visit Amherst for a DIVOH weekend will receive 100% of round-trip transportation costs (airline, bus, or train) for DIVOH attendance and will be hosted on campus by current students. Typically, seventy-five percent of the students who attend one of our DIVOH programs choose to apply to Amherst, although they are under no obligation to do so. A fee waiver of the $65 application fee is provided to all students invited to attend a DIVOH weekend. Some students who apply to the Open House will also receive a waiver for the Amherst College $65 application fee in order to encourage their applications to Amherst, regardless of whether they are invited to attend the Open House.

Shanley that might promote healing among our campus community, then Fr . Shanley would consider forwarding that message.” However, Maurano maintained that Esolen’s subsequent message reiterated what he had already published in a letter to the student newspaper. “Given that this message had already been delivered, Fr . Shanley saw no need for a second communication. Instead, he and other members of the Administration are working with Dr. Esolen to come up with an appropriate forum that will allow for dialogue and clarification between Dr. Esolen and concerned members of our campus community,” Maurano concluded.
