Tip #2:  You never know what you are capable of unless you try -don’t be the student that later regrets not going for it and giving it their all.

Tip #3:  If you are going to apply, do a good job.  Theperson/people reviewing it won’t spend time trying to understand your handwriting and will know if you took your time on it.
