Being academically prepared is one of DECA's Guiding Principles. A major point of this is college readiness. In today's blogpost, I'll share how members can utilize DECA in the college admissions process.
1. Share your winnings! Don't be hesitant in including your DECA leadership positions and competitive titles. This is a great way to exhibit the hard work you put into DECA!
2. Use the skills you learned through role plays and presentations in your admissions interviews! Make sure you issue a proper handshake, maintain eye contact, and keep the interviewer engaged! Also, utilize the information you've learned about dressing for success when it comes to your interview. Many colleges require professional or business casual dress depending on the scenario!
3. Share your DECA story. If you have a unique relationship with DECA, make sure you explain it more in depth in your personal essay or interview.
4. Ask your advisor for a recommendation letter! Your DECA advisor spend so much time with you that they probably know you best. They will be able to write the most detailed, impressive rec letter. However, make sure to ask in advance!
Good luck to anyone currently applying to college! I can't wait to see how you'll succeed later in life. If you have any questions make sure you reach out to me via email (email@example.com) or social media (@kassidybraziel) !
