    Be yourself in your application! Wellesley will like you for who you are. And of course, take demanding courses in high school, if only to ready yourself for the academic challenge which is to come.

    If you're a person of color, make sure you are comfortable with their demographics. LOOK UP THE DEMOGRAPHICS. It plays a huge role in feeling represented at Wellesley. Just because Wellesley isn't well known, it doesn't make it a bad school. It is amazing! Most professors genuinely care, and class sizes aren't bigger than maybe 30 students. The college is beautiful!! but very small. Keep that in mind.

    Get to know your professors (we have some of the best in the world) because they'd love to get to know you! Take advantage of all the resources and opportunities that the college has to offer. Make connections with students and alumni of all ages, disciplines, and walks of life.

    Be ready to work hard! Wellesley's academic life is rigorous, but professors here are also very caring and thoughtful. They care about student's learning experiences and they are more than willing to help students that are struggling.
