Let's face it, not enough attention is paid to the words we use day-in and day-out. We don't often consider enough the effect placed on the words we choose where small changes can have a big impact. For example, in speaking with Admissions-
"Youracceptance is very important to me" is much preferred over saying "My acceptance...". Why? Because using "Your" rather than "My" makes them feel important and not wanting to disappoint you.
Asking "Why doyoudo this job?" personalizes the discussion, transitioning it from being all about "me" while showing interest in them.
"What is the maximum scholarship for whichyoucan offer?" is far more desirable than asking "What kind of scholarship can I get?"
Engaging the Admissions Counselor in a personal discussion for making them feel important to you, goes a long way towards getting the outcomes thatYOUwant.
